Some stories are better in English

This is the little plastic mouse I got from the dentist a few weeks ago when I had a tooth extracted. It has my tooth inside. Yuck. Hilda saw it and explained. Mexicans don't have the tooth fairy. They have the tooth rat. The tooth rat carries away your tooth, and if you are a child, revisits you every night to bring little pieces of tooth to replace the one he took away.

I'll take a tooth fairy any day over a tooth rat, especially if the rat is going to be poking around in my mouth. Now that's creepy!
