A Brush with Teeth

I remember every single instance in my entire life when I have brushed my teeth.

And many people have trouble believing that this is true. These people seem to view brushing teeth as this really trivial thing, and they’ll do it with little regard or consideration. In contrast, I recognize how important – nay, momentous! – the act of brushing one’s teeth is. Which is why I fondly remember each and every single occasion: January 14, 1989. October 2, 1997. June 23, 2006.

And of course, yesterday. Which is why the whole “brushing teeth” thing has been on my mind today.
