A piece of jewellery.
A sentimental moment.
Mine was an…
Electric Toothbrush from Oral B!
I can just imagine what some of you are thinking.
And, if it hadn’t been my first gift from Ed and I wasn’t so madly in love with him, I’d be thinking the same thing.
Instead, I did what I usually do with gifts.
I put it back in its box and shoved it in the back of the closet right behind the workout video, journals and pashmina scarves.
Never to be seen again.
And there it sat for one year until I was looking for something and it fell down on my head.
Let me segway for a minute.
What’s the first thing that you notice about a person? Me, I notice their teeth. If I could get my teeth cleaned every.single.day, I would. Seriously.
Given my love of all things pearly whites, I thought, maybe I should give it a chance. Maybe it would give me that “cool, clean feeling” or maybe that’s Dove moisturizing cream.
Bottom line, I figured, it couldn’t hurt. So I tried it.
And the rest they say is history.
I have used that toothbrush twice, every.single.day (and sometimes more) since I took it out of the box. It almost feels like I’m at the dentist. Minus that gross paste treatment thing that they do.
And then it happened.
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. So it did.
The battery on my toothbrush died.
But I couldn’t let it go. I couldn’t forget that “ahh” feeling. So, as I was reminiscing on Twitter, the stellar customer services representatives at Oral-B took sympathy in my loss and offered to turn my frown upside down.
Allow me to introduce you to my latest love (second only to Ed)…
