Rinse and spit

Brushing your teeth is something you do. It isn't fun but it isn't the most egregious chore in the world. Two minutes twice a day and you're done. That's it.

Since I was a kid, toothpaste was always toothpaste flavored. When I hit my twenties, it got minty, fresh, la de da.

Now, we've moved into lemon (which I kind of understand), banana (which is disgusting), bubblegum (for the kids ostensibly) and the newly discovered and very gross chocolate.

You brush your teeth, two minutes, twice a day. Are we such spoiled, decadent vice ridden children that we need chocolate toothpaste - for adults? What's next, cigarette flavored toothpaste? Scotch flavored toothpaste?

Cigarette-flavored toothpaste?! I can't wait! You have all the best ideas, Jen.

Scotch toothpaste - great, another item requiring me to rip out my ID when they KNOW I'm old enough.

And yet, you don't need an ID to scorch your mouth with Listerine or chug a cap full of Nyquil.

Hmmmmmm....

I have always 'cleaned' my teeth with Scotch anyhow, on the reasoning that(strong)alcohol was good at cleaning stuff. Should I be worried?
