Finding a buried sippy cup with a half inch of curdled milk in the car on vacation in Florida and cleaning it out to put in the dishwasher.

Coming home from vacation, walking in the upstairs bathroom, and smelling something so rank that I was convinced something had died up there while we were gone. I braced myself, slowly opened the toilet lid, and discovered the smell was due to one of the kids going to the bathroom 8 days prior and forgetting to flush.

Having my husband walk in our bathroom the other night as I was brushing my teeth, with the toothbrush I have used for the last six weeks, and saying "Why are you brushing your teeth with my toothbrush?"

Those are all gross, but that's not the order I would put them in...I used to accidentally use Jim's toothbrush often. I figured since we kiss, it can't be *that* gross. (BTW: we now have separate plastic bins we store them in, so that doesn't happen anymore.)

I was about to say something like Jaena just said - - - - you kiss him, don't you, so what's so gross about sharing a tooth brush?????

That kind of stuff never happens in my household. :)

Nice word verification.

Here's the difference. When I am brushing my teeth, I am giving my teeth a bath, cleaning them from bacteria, debris, etc. When I am kissing, I am not giving my mouth a bath.

So I want the tool I am using to clean my teeth to not have any other "stuff" on it other than my own.

I'm also very smell sensitive when it comes to the mouth area - for example, I can't kiss if either I or the receiver of the kiss has morning breath. And I distinctly remember one evening Jason and I were dating, he had just eaten a bologna and cheese sandwich, we kissed, and I about lost it.

I can, however, share a bar of soap (unless it's L.M's.)

Okay, I am rolling. This was just the laugh I needed to start my morning. I think your comment made me laugh harder than the post (especially about the soap) Gotta love inside jokes! :)

I am so glad I decided to take a break from reports and browse your blog. I will be chuckling about this the rest of the day :) I've had a reoccuring nightmare that I may have used L's soap in years past before I knew the "full story". :)

Deb - you crack me up! I have big toothbrush/toothpaste issues too. I also cannot handle globs of toothpaste in the sink. or on the side of the tube. It created some issues in college when I learned not all girls share that issue.

I would definately reverse the order of grossness, although each is completely disgusting in its own right. The toothbrush thing doesn't really bother me, but it drives my husband crazy!

I agree with you on the gross factor of sharing a toothbrush! I think it is disgusting... I also agree with you on no kissing with morning breath! Gross!!!!

Keetha, sorry I cannot reveal any more information. I couldn't even tell my mom, who also inquired. What happens at blog night, stays at blog night :)
