Good ole' inflation

So back in the Dark Ages when I was a little kid, losing a tooth was a very big deal because it meant the Tooth Fairy would be visiting me to leave a five-rupee coin under my pillow. I've always loved those coins for some reason.

A friend told me some time back about how she always buys a gift for her 7-year-old son when he loses his tooth. Recently, however, when he lost a tooth rather late in the evening, giving her no time to go buy a gift, she simply left 200 rupees under his pillow.

Well whaddaya know. Inflation hit the Tooth Fairy too.
