Violet said...

You've done this one before Enty. Or else déjà vue

WareCat said...

Again?

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Nickle

Riven said...

None the tooth fairy doesn't care about the poor

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

No money but got a new Battle Cat doll.

Violet said...

Vu

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Nickel even...

FSP said...

I got a class ring.

Laninna said...

Yep. Some places the Tooth Fairy just doesn't visit.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Careful Wiglet! You may inadvertently summon Skeletor....

sandybrook said...

We have proclaimed Ms. TTM to be the Duchess of CDaN.
we also have Count and VIP as King and Queen.
Kristin is CDaN princess. Derek wants to be a Prince. I am a pissant. And we still have royal positions to be filled.

Groggy said...

I think tooth fairy is a pejorative, highly offensive term. Somebody get Harry Reid and Maria Cantwell to make a federal case to change it.

SecretTorture said...

25 cents... I use to be so jealous of kids at school who got a dollar bill from their tooth fairy. But we were poor and I was raised by a single mom so eh.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Heh heh. Royal positions. Filled.

Gossip-Monster said...

I had a friend whose dad gave me a dollar, in the 70s! I wanted to go over there every night and pull a tooth.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

*action figure! I meant action figure! Nooooo skeletooooor...

*lightening*

*fartsound*

JSierra said...

$20

Just kidding, some change or $1. I was always jelly of the kids who would get $5. They were practically rich!

Karen said...

$1.00 per tooth. (late 80s, early 90s)

Karen said...

I know a guy whose mom called and bitched out another mom when her daughter received THREE chapter books from the tooth fairy. I'd do it (the bitching out), too.

OneEyeCharlie said...

25 cents. My kids would get a dollar. I made the mistake of doing dollar bill origami one time. I thought they would think it was neat. Big mistake. Then it was expected of the Tooth Fairy. Lesson for the day... don't set precedents you aren't willing to follow through on.

Riven said...

Can I please be the Royal Antidisestablishmentarian? I just want to be the Ireland to your England. The Rasputin to your Czar if you will.

AJ said...

Has the position of Lady in Waiting been filled yet ?

jack ducky said...

$5. It was a good time.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

A silver dollar.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Lol! Oh I think that cartoon would be WAY better with sound effects done by Wiglet.

Violet said...

Sandy. I am as English as they come. A mere step away from royalty by default. But sadly I don't believe in position through privilege. So you lose.

sandybrook said...

No AJ it has not are you applying?
Riven that is too long a title how does Court Jester sound?

sandybrook said...

I am a pissant Violet.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Someone want Princess? I'm not ready for that sort of responsibility.

AJ said...

@SandyBrook
I am indeed. I figure we get all the fin of being around the royals and mingling with them but don't have the responsibility of ruling a nation. Or worrying about the hem lengths of our skirts & flashing people.

The Real Dragon said...

I didnt get jack.

Violet said...

Charlie - that goddamn tooth fairy letter, swirly writing in copper font, with a fairy picture. Every. Single. Time. Through 3 sets of teeth.

sandybrook said...

All princesses have to do is be pretty and get married and produce heirs and heiresses. No longer required to inbreed.
Ok AJ (sounds a bit like a Jersey girl)

LowKey said...

I'll stick with being the God/ess of Mischief ;)

Violet said...

I will be Prime Minister Sandy. Voted for by the masses through sheer popularity rather than by fortune of birth. (High opinion of self).

Riven said...

@Sandy I would be honored to be Court Jester. Or Bard would work as well. My greatest contribution to this world is my long winded tangents.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

TNC, you'd think there'd be a Skeletor Fart gif somewhere on the internet, but alas, nothing.

sandybrook said...

Ok you can be PM.
I suppose there can be more then one Court Jester lowkey.

AJ said...

@Sandy
True. Kinda does sound like some Jersey girls. LOL.
Plus we all know I have the princess dress already so ....

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I vote Princess WareCat. Bet she has a great baby maker.

sandybrook said...

Bard it is...lowkey is now woke Court Jester. I sm still a pissant.

sandybrook said...

Cats makes bebehs almost as well as rabbits.

Freya said...

So lucky! The Rock didn't leave me anything.

RowdyRodimus said...

@Kristin I have a feeling you'd like what I got the other day http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008XJM6H0/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RowdyRodimus said...

Oh and I got a DC Super Powers Green Lantern figure for my first lost tooth. The figure is now in a plastic case hanging on a peg board across the room from me as I type along with the rest of the Super Powers and Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars figures from 84-86. (Including foreign exclusives. The peg board right now is worth over 3 grand easy. Remember folks, stocks go down in value but people will always be willing to pay big bucks for the toys from their childhood)

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Rowdy yesss! Did you get the bundle with the Christmas special?

WareCat said...

Princess of Power!

RowdyRodimus said...

@Kristin Already have the Christmas special. It's a Christmas tradition to watch it, it's the modern day "Charlie Brown Christmas". Plus, isn't that the show we learned that Adam's Mom, Queen Marlena, was originally from Earth?

RowdyRodimus said...

Oh and my copy was 00002/15,000

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Well get on that Wiglet!!

MISCH said...

I got a silver dollar…my mom got 25 cents…

Glitter said...

One dime.

Sherry said...

I am Viscountess of Vice! All bow to my debauchery...

I got a class ring in a cloth bag and a broken promise to the prom...

Next time I got a quarter.

Wen said...

.25 That seemed to be the neighborhood standard. Then there was that dick of a Mother who thought she was better than everyone else and gave her kids 1.00.

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

How the hell do you remember that. I thought you were older than 20. I don't even remember when it happened and I'm in my early 30s.

LowKey said...

Can I beat people with my bladder onna stick?
I refuse to wear bells tho.
Well, maybe on special occasions.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Otherwise known as a "Kartrashian nipple".

auntliddy said...

50 cents, it was 1955. I was thrilled!!!!!

MadLyb said...

A quarter, but that was like getting $2 back in the day.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Yes, and please take away the tooth faires patent on the name. Other faires are offended that she places " Tooth" in front of the word fairy it's high offensive.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Violet, please do tell about your lineage, if you can without "sharing" too much. As an American I'm always fascinated by it all.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Charlie-that's so funny!! Those are the type of things you need to learn from other Parents..so glad I listen to the mistakes/challenges of parents who have older kids

Sprink said...

@Karen, without sounding like too much of a moron, I'd like to know what a Chapter Book is, and how it differs from a...book. #confusedagain

trixa25 said...

Nothing! My family always made it clear there was no tooth fairy, Santa or Easter bunny

beth olio said...

I can't remember but this is very topical for me as my son just lost his first tooth. He got $2 in quarters (because that seems like more $ than a toonie) and some floss and a really cool atlas.
The Tooth Fairy left a note explaining that the book was special for the first tooth and a mom has already bitched me out because her kid was jealous of the book.
