You probably remember the moment you learned that (SPOILER ALERT) the Tooth Fairy isn’t real. If this, right now, is that moment for you, we are terribly sorry. BUT, we do have something that will make you feel a whole lot better: a letter that perfectly expresses all the passive-agressive emotions you maybe felt when you discovered the whole getting-money-for-your-teeth thing was all a SHAM. Bonus: it was written by an adorable 9-year-old girl. And we love her.
The letter, which was uploaded to Imgur a year ago, starts out with, “Dear ‘Tooth Fairy.'” Please note that Tooth Fairy is in quotation marks because this young girl is experiencing a distinct sense of betrayal as she’s penning this note. And she’s definitely not one to bury her true sentiments deep down inside.
“I don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy anymore,” she bluntly continues. “I know it’s you who gets the money and puts it under my pillow, mom and dad.” Alright, now we’re naming names here. Things are getting tense.
While the 9-year-old is upset, she still takes a second to feel sympathy for her parents. “I’m sorry if this is hard for you, but I’m 9 now.” Get ready for her next shocking statement… “(P.S.) I don’t believe in Santa Claus either.” Wow. That was a tough pill to swallow. At this point, we’re just checking off all the fictional characters she no longer believes in.
To conclude the main body of her informative letter, she writes, “Love, Lexi.” (It’s almost as if she’s underlining her name here to prove that she is, in fact, real.) But then – Uh-oh! That’s not all. – we have another P.S.: “Daddy, I knew it was you last Easter, hiding my Easter eggs.” *gasps*
Lexi is keeping it real right now… literally.
If you’re wondering how the “Tooth Fairy” would respond, one Imgur user is way ahead of you:
We just have one more thing to say: Lexi’s use of commas is quite impressive. Keep using your punctuation skills to lay down the law, Lexi! Because you’ve proven that a comma’s worth a thousand words.
