My front tooth fell out when I was in my Granny’s.
I was so happy.
The Tooth Fairy gave me five euros.
The Tooth Fairy put my tooth away.
Yesterday, the dentist
Pulled my back tooth.
He gave me something to numb my jaw,
Said it was Sleepy Juice.
My mouth felt weird.
But I still got five euro.
Is when you are happy
Happiness is also when you are excited.
Happiness is the opposite of sad.
Then you are happy and excited.
Happiness is all about being happy.
