We Must All Follow Tooth’s Arrow

, , , , | Right | April 20, 2020

I work at a sporting goods store. A mother and her two sons come up to my register. The oldest child, no more than six, places a junior bow-and-arrow set on the counter.

Child: “I’m going to pull my loose tooth with that!”

Mother: *Laughing* “He means that he’s going to tie a string to his tooth and fire the arrow. He was looking around on YouTube and was picking out ways to pull his tooth.”

I stare at the child.

Me: “Well… I wish you the best of luck.”

To the child who bought that toy, I honestly do hope you succeeded. Good luck, young man.
