Highly Anticipated Event

Every night, for several nights in a row, she would come to me with kleenex and toothpick in hand and demand that the tooth in question be removed. It was firmly stuck.

Yesterday she came. It was stuck. She insisted.

So I told her to go get it out. It took her a few minutes, but she persisted through the blood and then...やた (yata)!!

Tradition in Japan is that when you lose a bottom tooth, it gets buried under your house. A top tooth is thrown onto the roof.

It appears that the Tooth Fairy isn't used to coming to Japan, so she may be delayed a few days.
