Frightening Friday-The Nose Fairy

Remember that game you played with your kiddos when they were young? You grabbed their nose and held your thumb in such a way where it "looked" like you actually stole the poor child's nose. "Got your nose!" you would exclaim--to which they either laughed...or freaked the hell out.

Little did you know at the time--the Nose Fairy is real. He's the dark horse of the family and the Tooth Fairy's less talked about cousin. The degenerate sneaks into little children's houses at night while they're sleeping. Creeping into their room, he climbs up onto the bed, perches on their pillow and just when they begin to wake, he rips their noses off their faces.
"Got your nose!" he shrieks. And then, he goes running off into the night.

Horrifying, isn't it?

The Nose Fairy can't help it. He's a kleptomaniac, of sorts. The affliction runs in the family but the Tooth Fairy has learned to be patient and wait for her prizes.

Yeah, my brain is kind of twisted. It's how it is in there sometimes.
