Is there really that much to say about a toothbrush?

The answer is, YES! I didn't always think so, but Kora has opened my eyes. She was very observant the other day and sparked an intelligent conversation with me pointing out something I had NEVER though about. We were in the bathroom together getting ready to brush our fangs and this is how it went... (But first, a visual of the subjects)

Kora: "Mom, why are our toothbrushes different?"
Me: "They aren't really. We both have pink ones because we're the only girls in the family!"
Kora: "No, yours is fancy."
Me: "Well, mine is bigger because I'm bigger than you!"
Kora: "No, that's not what I mean. (Pointing at the area where the pink starts at the top) Yours has that sexy part and mine doesn't."

Isn't that observant? I never thought about it that way, but let's think for a minute. Here is Exhibit A. Kora's toothbrush. This toothbrush is probably meant for children ages 3-8 wouldn't you think? It's flat, no curves, just a little lift in the front. It kind of reminds me of a child in that sense.

Now let's take a look at Exhibit B. This is my toothbrush. It's curvy in the front, back, sides, you name it. It's "sexy" wouldn't you say? It reminds me (Minus the sexy adjective and only going by the amount of curves of course.)

After laughing hysterically at her comment, I was very proud of her for thinking so hard about something so miniscule and unimportant. The funny thing is, Austin has my very same toothbrush except in a different color. Now what does that say about him, huh??

What a sexy toothbrush. I'm jealous. Mine is gray and looks like it could clean an industrial vat of crusted-over vasoline.

Raymond is also obsessed with his toothbrush. It has that fabulous frayed look of a chewed brush.
