Another Lost Tooth


Sophie has lost her second tooth.  It was a good thing, too, since the adult tooth had started to come up behind its baby counterpart.  I told her that I’d put in a good word with the tooth fairy so that she would visit Sophie tonight.

Sophie wanted to know how I contacted her.  “Do you send her an email?”  No.  “Do you video chat with her?”  No.  I replied that the Tooth Fairy isn’t that technologically advanced.  Instead, I told my dear baby, “I look up at the sky and whisper ‘Dear Tooth Fairy, Please visit Sophie tonight.  Thank you.'”

Sophie liked that very much.  And I marveled at how written notes and telephone calls have been supplanted by emails and video chats.  I love my Sophie.
