blackmailing the tooth faerie 10.2.2005

Anna was writing a note when Kathleen came into her room the other day.

"What are you writing?" Kathleen asked.

"Nothing" Anna replied and hid the note quickly.

"Can I see it?" Kathleen asked, now curious.

"No, its a secret." Anna said.

"Allright, fine." Kathleen just waited until Anna was asleep and then snuck in her room and read the note. She does stuff like this all the time. She is way sneakier than I am. For that matter, so are the children.

The background to this story is as follows. The tooth faerie has been coming for many years to our children, and originally gave them a single silver dollar, the same as Kath recalls from our youth. Anna was griping that this dollar cannot be spent, and so the tooth faerie, in a moment of generosity, began delivering a combo package; a single dollar bill and a silver dollar, thus simultaneously satisfying the need for nostalgia and practicality.

Anna's note read:
Dear Tooth Faerie,

I will not give you any more teeth until you leave three dollars.
