My new toothbrush

Yesterday, I found myself at the local drugstore. When you get to my age, you start relying on several different products found in the local drugstore. Aisle after aisle of things to enhance life for the aging - It's like a Toys R Us for old people.

I have just gotten past one of the worst colds, so I was in the market for a new toothbrush (seriously, throw out the old virus-laden one - it's not doing anyone any good anymore). A particular Colgate toothbrush caught my eye, mainly because it was black. You really don't see many black toothbrushes on the market, I figured it would stand out in my blue-toned bathroom. All the better for my tired, geriatric eyesight first-thing-in-the-morning.

Colgate-Palmolive really threw all the special effects on this brush: angled bristles, grippy dots, indicators and ergonomic handles. But the one feature that really separates this brush from EVERY other motherfuckin brush in the room:

the ribs on the head.

Seriously, my toothbrush was massaging the insides of my lips and cheeks as I was brushing. An incredible experience, let me tell you. My mouth feels fifteen years younger. I want to share this with my wife, but that crosses a few lines. I do not know what is involved with product testing and development over at Colgate-Palmolive industries, but after forty years of evolution, this toothbrush has become my favorite.

Hope this made you smile.
