Here's a conundrum for you:

My husband forgot to pack his toothbrush.  We are on holidays for the next 2 weeks, and he forgot his toothbrush.  Without even ASKING, he just starts using mine.

I'm like, get your plaque-ridden grills off my soft-bristle brush you gingivi-freak!

Then he's all like, what the problem is??

And I don't really know WHAT the problem is.  I have no problem kissing him, having sex with him (on occasion), sharing towels, facecloths, our bed, napkins, water bottles, utensils, plates, bowls, hot beverages, alcoholic beverages or backwashed beverages with him.  I wash the skid marks out of his boxer briefs, I pop his nasty-ass pimples INCLUDING one he had on his ass that hurt so much he couldn't sit, and yet when he starts spreading the love on my toothbrush, I am completely heebie-jeebied.

What's the verdict?  Am I crazy yet?


  1. You're NOT crazy! I have totally the same hang up. I don't understand it, but there it is!

  2. Randy has this hang up...I do not. He thinks anything that cleans your teeth should stay on your teeth only. I feel 'eh...we share every other bodily spew so why not a toothbrush.

    I do not think it's crazy's just your preference. ;) um but...why exactly did he not just run to a drugstore and get a toothbrush?

  3. Toothbrush sharing is a NO NO!!

    Strange, I suppose, with all the other nasty things we share with our spouses...

  4. hey !my husband can take my toothbrush!!!
    however than IT IS HIS !!!! ha !ha !!

  5. OMG My former spouse and I essentially shared a toothbrush forever and I thought nothing of it; current hubby Deels thought a WHOLE HECK OF A LOT about it though the first time he realized I had used his. Because I live to torment him, I respect not using his anymore but that doesn't stop me from licking it when I'm in the bathroom and it occurs to me.

    What? Oh like you've never licked someone else's personal hygiene tools.

  6. I have to agree with you on this one. I think a lot of people would!

    I remember long ago, in the years when I was young and a guy and leaving a toothbrush at his place (on purpose), and he just went ballistic about it.

    Toothbrushes are clearly a hot button.

    Or maybe he just didn't like me that much...

  7. Not crazy - obviously a lot of people have this same hang up. I'm not one of those people, though. Charming Bitch's comment cracked me up...

    And speaking of heebie-jeebies, did you just make me picture my brother's ass pimple before 9am? Oh, I think you did. I really must stop reading you during breakfast.

  8. I can't answer your question. i saw the word skid mark and went all crazy like.

  9. I am so with you on this. I can't, can't, can't stand the thought of sharing toothbrushes. I've even shared a lollipop with him, but toothbrushes? NO! The one time he did use my toothbrush I had to throw it out and get a new one. He still doesn't understand why it offends me so much.

  10. Nope, not crazy. Don't know why after all the other things we share... but it's just something about trying to get clean with something that someone else has used...

  11. [...] Overheard in the Mustard house last night, as if we don’t already have enough issues with dental care around [...]
