CLEARWATER, FL – Grabbing a Glacier Freeze Gatorade out of the refrigerator, Chris Hannigan, 34, was forced to listen to his 7-year-old son, Dylan, excitedly brainstorm about his plans to spend the crumpled $100 bill left by the Tooth Fairy last night.
“Yeah, it was a shock to the whole family this morning,” said Hannigan, struggling to open the child-proof lid of an Ibuprofen bottle.
Dylan previously received one dollar for each of his central incisors, so the 9900% increase in return for the lateral incisor suggests either big changes in the tooth industry or a severe accounting error on the Tooth Fairy’s part.
“Mom was even more surprised than dad,” commented Dylan while drawing a picture of the bicycle he plans to purchase. “Her eyes got really big, and then she started asking him about his poker game last night.”
The now wealthy second-grader already has another loose tooth, so time will tell if this big payout was a simple mistake or an exciting new trend for elementary schoolers everywhere.
On an unrelated note, guy’s poker night at the Hannigan’s has been postponed indefinitely.
