I brush my teeth after breakfast and after dinner and very recently I started flossing. I have an electric toothbrush which I got at BJ’s and I had to buy 2 of them. The first one died a few years back, but the other one is still going and I change the brush head every time I go through a tube of toothpaste. I have the dentist next Tuesday and they say that I need to get 3 fillings worked on, but with my dental insurance, it will only cost me about $300.
My fingers are fat, so I don’t floss like most people. I use a two-step method of removing dental plaque. First, I use the Gum picks which have soft rubber bristles that I work between my teeth and they massage my gums. I don’t like to be bothered with all of that string, so I use the dental floss picks, which I think are called flossers. My hygienist suggested that I get a water pick, but that seems too messy to me.
When I was younger, hair actually grew on the top of my head, but I usually just combed it, instead of brushing it. Since I am talking about my hair, I should probably mention that this week I got my first hair cut since January. I was really rocking that Fabio look with my hair, but I don’t have his muscular physique. I am hoping that this post does better than last week’s He Went to the Mountain, as although that got 18 likes, it did not get one comment and I am still having a hard time trying to brush that off.
