When you know, you know.
A fed-up youngster penned a saucy note to the tooth fairy, after she began to suspect the mythical being wasn’t the real deal.
“I was right at the age where I was starting to figure out the truth,” she tells Yahoo Parenting. “So when I lost this tooth, I didn’t tell anyone for two days because I wanted to see if she would come.”
When Jenny told her mom about the lost tooth, she suggested the youngster write a letter to the tooth fairy.
The witty little girl penned this gutsy letter:
“(Not very) Dear T. F. — This is the second time you’ve done this. You forgot me. So if you’re not going to come, then I’m going to keep my own teeth. You are through collecting teeth. From Jennifer. From now on I’m keeping my own teeth. Unsincerely, Jennifer E. PS Keep collecting from Mike, though. Obviously you like him better. P.P.S. Don’t bother to write back.”
The letter was actually written in 1991, but recently resurfaced after the now grown-up Jenny posted about it on Reddit. When she visited her parents’ home over the weekend, she mentioned the old letter to her dad.
“He walked right over to a book on the shelf and pulled it out,” she says. “My mom keeps all of my adorable things —like my kindergarten graduation cape — and my dad keeps all the snarky things, so it made sense that he would have it.”
