A milestone......and a story I wasn't gonna share, but decided to anyway.....

What milestone have I reached, you ask?

Why, this is my 200th post!

To commemorate my 200th post, I have a story about toothbrushes.

But first, let's talk about 200.

Wow! 200 posts! I didn't know I'd keep it up this long. I didn't know I'd have stuff to say. I really look forward to writing weekly posts, coming up with ideas for them, documenting my home improvement endeavors, sharing life. This has become such a fun hobby. Who knew??

Really, for all those bloggers who post daily, 200 is nothing. But to me, it's a milestone. Thanks, Whit, for getting me hooked.

And so, since it's my 200th post, you should leave me a "Happy 200th post" comment.

You just should.

Now let's talk about toothbrushes....

One morning about a month ago, I went to brush my teeth only to discover that my toothbrush was damp.

Like had-been-used-recently damp.

I was confused. But considered that maybe it was still wet from the night before. And I brushed my teeth anyway.

The next morning, as I was going into the bathroom to brush my teeth, I discovered why my toothbrush had been damp the day before.

The mister was standing there, brushing away, with my aqua colored toothbrush.

Not his lime green one.

My. Aqua. Colored. Toothbrush. Was in his mouth.

Were they really that hard to tell apart?

Were the lights out when he grabbed the toothbrush?

This was funny, right?

Yes, it was.

After the laughter subsided, the toothbrush was promptly discarded. And I brushed, sort of, with toothpaste and a clean washcloth.

That night, when buying a new toothbrush, I tried to get as far from lime green as possible.

Think the red will work?

So far, so good.
