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?

“The origins of National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day are not entirely clear; one Web site pins it on a Whirlpool Appliance Ad campaign from years ago, while other sites say it’s to make space for Thanksgiving provisions.  more here…

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!

Mike’s Top Five Fort Wayne Hamburgers

I eat out. A lot. If you’ve been following my posts, you know that already. While I’ve focused on particular restaurants thus far, I thought I’d do something a little different this time out. I’m starting a series of posts I call my “Favorite Fives.” Each list will be – you guessed it – my five favorite foods in a particular category.

Entrées, appetizers, desserts, you name it, I have a list for it. Some posts may be pretty detailed, some may just hit you with the facts. The first list is one of the latter and equally the easiest and the most difficult for me to assemble: my favorite five hamburgers. The beauty of hamburgers is that they’re like snowflakes…no two are quite the same. Read more

What is a banger?

Thank you Wikipedia…

The term “bangers” is attributed to the fact that sausages, particularly the kind made during World War II under rationing, were made with water so they were more likely to explode under high heat if not cooked carefully.
