Floss, polish and reclamation

Don’t you love going to the dentist for a cleaning? Your teeth feel so smooth and clean. You can go like this “thhhhhh” between every tooth.

We know we’re suppose to clean our teeth like that after every meal, but we don’t. It’s not that we can’t clean our own teeth or we don’t know how. It’s just better when someone else does it.

So, here’s my big idea…

How about we set up Floss N’ Go booths at the mall food court?

You finish your lunch, you pop in there and for like 5.99 they professionally floss your teeth and you get on with your day.

Maybe there could even be a 6.99 ‘floss and polish’ special too, or the 8.99 ‘floss, polish and reclamation’ special?

With the ‘floss, polish and reclamation’ special the “FPR”. They could baggy all the remnant food bits they collect from your mouth and you could take them home for the dog or for a snack for later. Okay… that’s gross.

Good idea?

To help you out – –  here are Mike’s top five tips for cleaning out the fridge…
#5. Throw out that salad dressing bottle that’s upside down in the door rack – if you haven’t used that last little bit yet, you’re not going to.
#4. The Tupperware that’s in the far back corner that no one knows what’s in it – throw the whole thing out, Tupperware and all – before it climbs out of there on it’s own and eats the dog one night.
#3. Do it before you eat so nothing comes up when you gag.
#2. When checking best before dates…. remember to check the year too.
#1. Get the job done quickly and don’t get wrapped up in that game where you open the door really quickly to see if you can catch the light still off.. kept ME goin’ for hours!
