TOOTHACHE

Nicholas Knight

 

"Hey!  Don't swat me!"

"Who said that?" asked the surprised child.

"Me!"

"But you're a firefly!"

"I'm no stinkin' fly!  I'm a tooth fairy!"

"Does that mean you're gonna give me money?"

"Sure does.  And since this is your first tooth..."

"First?" the child cut in indignantly.  "It's my second!"

"Oh. I guess your parents must have beat me to the first one."

"So how much you gonna give me?"

"A quarter."

"Big deal!  My parents gave me a buck!"
