Megan's on a roll in the losing teeth department. She's lost both top front teeth, and now the teeth on either side of those are loose. She now knows that teeth = money.
Megan: Mom, how much do you think I could get if my silver tooth falls out?
Me: Well, you get $1 for a regular tooth, right?
Megan: Except for this one, remember? I wrote to the Tooth Fairy and asked for 2 bucks and she gave it to me!
Me: She did? (I did? It sounds vaguely familiar, like I might have even blogged about it. Hmmm.)
Megan: Yeah. So how much for the silver one do you think?
Me: Gee, I dunno. How much do you think?
Me: $12.00?! How do you figure?
Megan: Well, I already have $13.00 and I need $12.00 more to buy that chocolate thing in the catalog.
Me: Oh. Well, you're really gonna' have to plead your case with the Tooth Fairy to get $12.00.
It's a molar, so thankfully I've got some time to decide what that might be worth to
