Toe Nail Fairy

It’s late night and I love how peaceful it is in my hood.  No birds chirping, no cars on the road, dogs dreaming, Captain Adventure snoring and I am just super duper wide awake.  Sippin on some Chardonnay wondering when my big toe nail is going to come off.

A couple of months ago at French Broad River Festival, my poor foot got stomped on in the dance tent by a tall dude.  He has no idea he did it and I don’t even know his name.  Its not a party at a festival until someone gets hurt.  Ha ha, just kidding.  Well anyway, it has been throbbing for 2 months now and it is really purple.  So, I have painted it pink to disguise and ignore the injury.  Well actually, I repainted it by the pool today in a Revlon shade called “Almost Blueberry”.

In the last week or so I have noticed that my toe nail is loose and about to come off.  It reminds me so much of a long ago childhood loose tooth.  My question is, when my toe nail finally releases from my cuticles,  should I put it under neath my pillow in hopes that the toe nail fairy will slip some coins there while I slumber???  Hmmm.

Some late night ridiculousness

Remember when we were kids and we got sooo excited when we lost our tooth and we put it under our pillow at night.  We went ape shit when we woke up, it was like Christmas morning.  Lifting up our pillows just to see what the tooth fairy brought.  It usually was a note and some coins.  I was one excited snaggle tooth girl back then for sure.  I strongly believed and was totally convinced that the tooth fariy existed until my brother Augie told me otherwise.  Thanks Augie.

Being a kid was so magical and mysterious and sooo much more simpler back then.  Ha ha.  What happened to us as adults? The magic gets lost somewhere underneath our pillows and the fabric of our dreams.

As soon as this toe nail comes loose, by God, I am gonna put it underneath my pillow and see what happens.  I will keep you posted.

Today, my friend Beth had a twinkle in her eye, she really wanted to tie one end of a string around my toe nail and the other end around a door knob, and then she wanted to slam the door shut to see if my toe nail would come loose. Too darn funny.

Okay good night this is getting silly

  1. Hey, the tooth fairy left me a coin but no note! Maybe the southern tooth fairy does things differently 🙂 I don’t know about the door idea, but I definitely think you should see if the toenail fairy brings you anything!

  2. A similar thing happened to me when Toby Tall got slammed in the smoker at 240.
    I cussed out your father ’cause it was his fault even though he was not in the vacinity at the time of the incident. Toby turned black and was ugly, but the center of attention. I painted him clear and shiny, and the rest or his left hand buddies red. Then, much to my chagrin, he fell off and his replacement appeared normal and better than new. ” Oh no!” I thought, just when I was enjoying showing off my ugly, black nail. The lesson learned: We are not in charge of the healing process, God is. We heal wether we want to or not.
