I was awakened this morning by my girlfriend rummaging around in the bed, searching for her lost tooth guard. It finally turned up underneath my pillow. “How did it get there?” she asked.
Of course I knew immediately, it must be the Toothguard Fairy! How exciting that this benevolent figure from my childhood had returned to celebrate the changes of middle age with us!
I have such wonderful memories of going to sleep with a lost tooth under my pillow and waking up to a quarter. Why not mark the milestones of aging with the same magic and mystery?
