today as i was brushing my teeth...

...I noticed your toothbrush there in the holder by the sink...and I was thinking back to when I bought it for you. Actually, I didn't buy it FOR YOU; I pulled it out of the brand new package of new toothbrushes I had under my bathroom sink, but still it was special that I opened the pack FOR YOU. I'd been saving them for overnight guests ;-)

So anyway, when I opened the pack, I put thought into which one you'd like to use--that's just how I am. They were all white, with a color combination on them...mine was white with green and orange, for example. I wanted to give you the one with blue, but it had pink, more like fuschia on it, and I didn't want you to feel too girlie while brushing your teefus. Then, I stopped myself "i'm totally putting too much thought into this," and I handed the blue and pink one to you...and on it, I'd glued a little rectangle of sticky white paper with your name written on it. I thought that was just a sweet thing to do...not having a clue how long, if at all, you'd be at my place brushing your teeth.

Something about waking up brushing my teeth and seeing your toothbrush there next to mine does something to me. Kinda warms me. (sappy sap)

Today, I thought "what am I gonna do with it now that I'm leaving?" I considered throwing it away, but quickly decided against it. I like the idea of keeping it, maybe putting it in my next toothbrush holder...or maybe I'll use it for brushing my eyebrows when I'm tweezing. kinda gross, but lovely, huh?

i don't think you should brush your eyebrows with a used toothbrush...but this is the person who grabbed the pad from your hand as you wiped your brow with it...
