Cherry Ride Tips for Triumphant Living #3

When brushing your teeth, refrain from singing aloud to the Wilco song* coming from the stereo. Because jamming your toothbrush into your gums because you're trying to hit that high note hurts like a mother bitch.

* Note: it doesn't even have to be a Wilco song. I suspect your mouth will bleed just as much from trying to sing any other song from any other artist.

Other CRTFTLs can be found here and here.

Well, Wilco makes my ears bleed, so why not my gums, too?

Would if I'm singing, "Cause you give me special joy, ohhhhhhh?" That might REALLY get me carried away to the point where the toothbrush goes down my esophagus, and my roomy has to pull it out with some zircon encrusted tweezers.

At least you weren't using your toothbrush as a microphone. Were you???

If you do try to use it as a microphone, that's all well and good so long as it's only a microphone when it's outside of your mouth.

Do you recommend listening to Kenny G?

I'm curious about the Wilco song. If it was "I'm A Wheel", well, then the injury is understandable, but, if it was "I'm trying to break your heart", I question your technique. Falling asleeep or crying while brushing your teeth would be acceptable in that case.

Do you recommend doing aerobics while brushing?

I think it's generally a good idea not to vocalize at all when brushing your teeth.

unless you are pretending to be frankenstein's monster, then it actually helps to be brushing your teeth
