Remember when losing a tooth was exciting? Getting that wiggling tooth yanked out by an enthusiastic older sibling. Or losing it at school, you might have gotten a trip to the nurse’s office. Then triumphantly returned to class, brandishing your new trophy. But the best part was definitely the tooth fairy. Going to sleep, dreaming of what she might bring, and waking up to a new, magical treasure. Wouldn’t tooth removal as adults be so much more fun if she still paid you a visit here in New Orleans?
The New Orleans Tooth Fairy
We imagine the New Orleans tooth fairy dressed like she’s on a Mardi Gras Krewe Court. But don’t let her glamorous, sparkly appearance fool you. She’s as down-to-earth as any true New Orleanian. Probably whispering, “Where y’at, cher?” as she searches for your molar. But what would the New Orleans Tooth Fairy put under your pillow to reward you for your tooth removal?
- Tasty Treats For Teeth: Did you get your tooth removal on a Monday? You can bet the New Orleans tooth fairy is going to put some red beans and rice under your pillow. Sure, it might get a little sloppy. But don’t worry—she’ll leave some cornbread too to help sop up the delicious mess. Or maybe some beignets, pralines, or even a king cake! But then she’ll probably warn you about all that “sugah!”
- Throw Me Somethin’! The New Orleans Tooth Fairy has her pick of Mardi Gras treasures to share. Doubloons are a classic and obvious choice. But if it’s a nice, big tooth (and you’ve been good this year) you might earn a traditional Zulu coconut or sparkly Muses shoe!
- Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Lose a Tooth? If she’s feeling REALLY generous, she might slip a Saints ticket or two between your sheets. Though her willingness to share might depend on how the season’s going. She’s got the biggest crush on Drew Brees, after all (who doesn’t though?).
