My four-year-old granddaughter was asked what she thinks happens when the tooth fairy takes a tooth. Ava said: "The tooth fairy saves them up and when I gets bigger she puts them back in!"

Wrong Stuff in the Cough Medicine Bottle
This is a story about a grandfather from Carmanville who was always having tricks pulled on him by his grandson.This trick almost killed poor old Grampie.

End of the World? Whatever!
My boyfriend's teenage daughter Chantelle and her friend Angel were talking about the U.S. minister who was predicting the world would end May 21, 2011.
