No need to adjust your monitors...

So you may recall a previous posting about my new role as a test bunny for Gillette. Well, today (after 24 hours of not brushing), I got to go in for my "dental screening" where they required me to swish with this disgusting pink liquid that helped to show how much and where plaque built up on my teeth in that 24 hour period of time.

Only thing is, even after brushing my teeth for a full 3 minutes and then eating, my tongue is still tinted this frightening shade of pink.

During all the errands I ran this afternoon, I had to talk with a mostly closed mouth, so that I wouldn't scare people.

i got that stuff from the dentist when i was in middle school, and i brushed for hours and it didn't go away. it's all a hoax! i've since learned that red wine does the same trick for the plaque on the teeth. it's really quite a nice party trick -- "hey there gorgeous, what's your sign? does it look like i need to brush?" HOT.

Eeeek... I bet it glows in the dark too......
Are those Gillette people insuring you when you're on their time?
Take care, Timbo
