Tooth Fairy Tales – Kara Vasseur
In honor of National Tooth Fairy Day, Kara Vasseur, digital marketing manager for Crisis Assitance Ministry and #CLTAvenger, shares her story about the Tooth Fairy. FAIR WARNING: If you are still a “Tooth Fairy Truther,” stop reading now.
“As a child, I believed in things far longer than I should have — the Tooth Fairy was no exception. This required my parents to be particularly clever in explaining any…deviations. So, the Tooth Fairy would write me letters. When I lost a tooth on Valentine’s Day and the Tooth Fairy never came, I woke up two mornings later to find a tiny, handwritten apology from TF explaining she’d had a date with Cupid that ran too late.
When I subsequently swallowed a tooth while eating a chocolate bar, TF wrote again to explain that Cupid (obviously the primary purveyor of all chocolate goods) had alerted her to the tooth loss and I would still be compensated. When I finally realized there was no Tooth Fairy, I not only lost my main source of income, I mourned the romance of Cupid and the Tooth Fairy that never could be.”
