Pardon My Mouth

MENTAL STATUS: "Groovy." I am virtually tooth pain free. Hallelujah!

Yes, I'm feeling great. But... I did something. I don't know, maybe it was the medication I was on. I just wasn't thinking. But yesterday, I, uh, made a big mistake in my marriage.

I think everyone grew closer to the computer screen with that announcement. LOL!
But yes, it's true. This is what I did:

I. (Accidentally, mind you.) Used. His. Toothbrush.

Yes! Someone call the cops!

Well, you'd think with the way he'd acted, I actually had committed a felony. Sheesh. It was an accident! And you know, it's not exactly like we kiss with our noses, here. And it was an accident!!

Okay. Now maybe with all the teeth problems I've been having lately, he wouldn't want me using his toothbrush and could justly be angry, but he even had the nerve to throw it out and get a new toothbrush.

Couldn't he have just soaked the old one in peroxide or something? Did it have to be THAT drastic? I only brushed one side of my mouth. And it was an accident!!

Me? I wouldn't care--just don't make a habit out of it. I know it's not hygienically sound, after all.

I guess you never know what really grosses out a person. Strangely enough, what grosses me out is that the hubby drinks water from our bathroom sink. Yes, I won't drink water from the bathroom sink, not with all the cleansers I use and the toilet flushing here and there going on.
I'll brush my teeth with that water, but I won't actually swallow the water.

See? That's the difference.

My hubby argues that it's all pipes, but I just can't do it. It makes me ill just thinking about it. Huh. Funny how you think you know a person you've been married to for twelve years then all of a sudden...surprise!

What really grosses you out?

Touching my belly button. Having anyone else touch my belly button. Seeing someone else touch their belly button, or someone else touch it.

Makes my gag. Nearly makes me yak. Pretty much introduces me to hysteria.

Glad you're feeling better!

I'm with you on the toothbrush thing. Another one of mine is sharing the bathroom. I know, I know. I've been married to the man for thirty years, but bathroom time is personal. Do you really want to watch someone sitting on the toilet? Eeeww!

CYD said...

Gee whiz. Tell him you don't know what the big deal is--you've been using his toothbrush to clean around the faucets for years and it never bothered him, so what's the big deal about YOU using it on half your teeth?

Humph. Some folks have no sense of humor.

My dh uses my toothbrush all the time. My ds uses my toothbrush all the time, too. I don't use theirs, though. Eeww. They don't rinse their brushes well after using them, so there's always dried, yucky toothpaste crud dried on the handle.

Eeeww! Eeeww! Yuck! Gag!!

Glad to see you're feeling better there, chica.

LOL. You guys are killing me! Yes...I'm one of those anal ones. I wouldn't throw it away...maybe a good alcohol soak.

I'm with Chicki on the bathroom privacy. I live in a house full of boys and they ALWAYS seem to need something when I am using the...facilities. Then the boys freak out if I just happen to be nekked - I'm in the BATHROOM! With the door shut. If I lock it - no biggie. Hubby will unlock it and sit and talk. They just laugh at me when I yell that I'd like to have at least 5 minutes to myself.
