Hard Times

The tooth fairy sighed, times were hard. She had been under great pressure to increase the amount of money she left under each child’s pillow. A mixture of inflation and greed.  On top of that the condition of  young teeth had deteriorated over recent years. Couple this with a world wide slump in the value of young enamel, meant that her profits were being increasingly squeezed. The need to try something new was imperative. So she found herself in the old folks home, late at night, emptying glasses of false teeth. A nasty business, but what choice did she have?
