A six-year-old in Wisconsin lost his tooth and was bummed that the Tooth Fairy wasn’t going to visit him. Until principal Curt Angeli stepped in. Landon, a first-grader at Gillett Elementary in Wisconsin, was busy having fun with classmates and he realize a loose tooth had come out. When he came back to class after recess, his teacher and fellow pupils noticed the change in his face. They all searched the playground but to no avail. But principal Curt decided to write a ‘verification’ letter to the tooth fairy to appeal to her better nature.
… He wrote: Dear Tooth Fairy, today [Landon] lost a tooth while playing outside at recess … despite the valiant efforts of an intrepid search team, we were unable to recover the tooth. As a trained principal and hobby dentist, I can verify that there is definitely a gap in [Landon]’s teeth that was not there this morning when he came in. Please accept this letter as official verification of a lost tooth and provide the standard monetary exchange rate you normally use for a real tooth. P.S. I am still waiting for the money for my wisdom teeth from 1987.
