confessions of a man losing his motor skills
May 21, 2012
I have confessed to quite a few failings in this space, from being a lousy handyman to falling down stairs to cracking the toilet seat by sitting on it.
Have we tired of this gimmick? Well, if by “we” I mean “me” then no, no we haven’t.
Here is a picture of my toothbrush.
I realize that’s pretty uninteresting. But now you know, I have an electric toothbrush.
Lemme esplain. No, there is too much, lemme sum up.
When you brush your teeth with an old fashioned analog toothbrush, you put toothpaste on the toothbrush, stick the toothbrush in your mouth, and brush.
Well, when you use an electric toothbrush, you do the same. Except you also push a button on the toothbrush to start the toothbrush head vibrating wildly.
So sometimes, you forget. And by you, of course, I mean I. I forget. And I push the button just a smidge too early. Which starts the toothbrush head vibrating. Violently. Near, but not IN, my mouth.
Which sprays toothpaste all over the counter. And the mirror. And my face.
But don’t worry about me. It only happens about once a week. I’m fine.
