We all have quirks, and often different hygiene habits. If it’s safe to assume that we all brush our teeth (hopefully on a daily basis), I believe it’s also safe to assume that many of us have different habits regarding how we brush, and what we do while we’re brushing.
Personally, I drool all over myself if I try to brush my teeth standing up. I have no skill for keeping toothpaste foam in my mouth, so I have to lean over the sink while I brush to keep from making a huge mess. This shortcoming also contributes to another tooth-brushing habit: I prefer to brush without clothes on, or just in my underwear so I avoid the lovely crusty white stains that go along with slobbering on myself like a rabid dog. Brushing in the shower can also help avoid a mess, but I don’t do it very often since I like to gargle afterward and it takes a while to get an adequate mouthful of water from the shower head.
So, how do you brush your teeth? Do you wander around the bathroom, the house? Do you hum? Do you drool? Do you do it with clothes on or naked, in the shower? Are you like my wife, wandering around the house naked, teasing me with her jiggling breasts. Or are you like me, clinging to the sink like you’re chained to it? I bet some of you even listen to your ipods while doing it.
If you don’t brush your teeth (ewww), let me know how you avoid letting your teeth rot and fall out, as well.
