Last night, while attending the Crazy 8’s Film Festival in Vancouver, I lost another tooth (the 8th since my radiation treatments). I was chewing a piece of gum and suddenly I felt a crunch. It ruined my evening – I didn’t even go to the afterparty. However, before leaving, my actor friend Angelo told me that if I kept the tooth in my pocket, a tooth fairy would come and switch it for cold hard cash.
Well, when I got home I decided to sleep with my pants on, with the tooth still in my pocket. It seemed to take me a long time to fall asleep and I don’t remember waking up during the night but when I awoke this morning I quickly checked my pocket and found a tiny squashed-up-and-flattened fairy.
Luckily, my tooth was still there.
