Baby teeth and asexual reproduction.February 19, 2010
Everyone knows about the tooth fairy. When you loose a tooth, you put it under your pillow at night and wake in the morning to find money in it’s place. When I was young, my teeth were worth a nickel. It was very exciting every time it occurred. This week, a six year old told me that he received $10 for his tooth.
I’m not old. I’m not even close to old. Yet, that child’s $10 bill represents a 200 fold increase in tooth value from the time I was young. I think we can conclude only one thing from this trend.
Forget stocks and bonds – invest in teeth.
Perhaps a career in professional three-legged racing is in his future?
