Fairy no 1, Tinkerbell (original, I know!) was probably the most reliable of them all. She did manage to drop a tooth once, although this unfortunate incident was not entirely her fault ....what actually happened when Tween 1 came across the tooth on my bedside table, is that whilst trying to locate a quick exit out the window, via my bedroom, Tinkerbell accidentally "dropped" the tooth, due to it's cumbersome size - easy to do when you're a mere featherweight by fairy standards. After leaving a long grovelling letter of apology under the pillow of Tween 1 the following night, Tinkerbell was quickly forgiven and managed to keep her job, by the skin of her teeth (pardon the pun!) As time went on, Tinkerbell continued to receive many loving notes left alongside the tooth, the last one she received looked like this:
Fairy no 2, Seraphina (like the imagination here?) had a problem with memory loss. On the odd occasion, she even managed to forget her own name, signing off with Tinkerbell instead! The first time she did this, Seraphina left a sick note the following night, explaining that when she is too unwell to make the journey, Tinkerbell visits as her replacement, maily because she knows the route so well! Tween 2 is obviously a harsher employer than Tween 1 and was not at all happy with this lame excuse. On closer inspection of the handwriting, she became very supsicious of the remarkable similarity to mummy's and an interrogation ensued. Fairy 2 was promptly dismissed without reprieve and Granny had to be brought in to rescue the situation, explaining that all mummies pretend to be fairies, it's not just her mother who has been lying to her all these years!
Fairy no 3, Sebastian (an attempt to avoid sex discrimation lawsuits) is currently on trial. So far he is proving to be a good'un. The Boy lost 2 teeth on consecutive days last week and Sebastian actually made an appearance both nights, despite mummy being away for one of them - impressive eh?! Although The Boy is only 8 years old, I am wondering how long Sebastian will manage to hold down his job. Tween 1 and Tween 2 are currently adhering to the strict confidentiality agreement, but for how much longer?
How is the employment history of your fairies? Are they any better than ours?!
