Sorry, the Tooth Fairy needs two independent witnesses to verify.

When comedian Emily Winter was a little girl, she had the dubious privilege of having two lawyer parents. As the document above suggests, she once lost a tooth while eating breakfast. When she couldn't find it to put under her pillow for the Tooth Fairy, Winter's parents came up with a plan to convince the fairy the tooth was real. Mom wrote up the affidavit, Emily signed it, and Dad notarized. Just like in every family!

Typing this up was a prudent financial choice for Winter's parents, particularly this line: "Affiant further states that if so compensated, she shall not seek additional compensation if the tooth is located in the future." I definitely pulled that one as a kid. Turns out the Tooth Fairy is also not easily fooled by bits of wax that look like teeth.
