So fresh and so clean. Clean?

Last night I slept at Grandma Jan's house. It doesn't smell of a grandparent's home, as many grandparents' homes do. Instead it's a fresh and inviting space, redone frequently. Always new additions, keeping with the times. But despite the fung-shway(phonetic) and color changes, some crucial aspects of the home remain constant. There is always aquafresh toothpaste in the basement bathroom. I doubt they still make aquafresh. I don't know that I've ever seen anyone buy aquafresh, and it's been at least fifteen years since the aquafresh ad has run on TV. It would seem that the blue tube in the drawer is old and past it's prime. So imagine my surprise when my nightly brush was one of rejuvination, spice and all around euphoria. Aquafresh is like cheese or wine, better with age. I may build a cellar and store the tubes, dating the boxes, and pulling out the choicest selections when an event calls for extremely delicious breath.


  1. Is there a difference between Aquafresh and Aquafresh 3? Cuz I see the latter all the time.

  2. lol... I seriously just started looking for a new toothpaste this week. your timing is so good.


Don't be shy.
