A tale of two toothbrushes

This is the story of our two toothbrushes, Basil and Kate… Two restless toothbrushes unable to settle on the bathroom shelf…

Their restlessness made no sense. The shelf was clean and wide. It was attached to a nice shiny mirror in a warm, safe house in Birmingham, but for some reason our toothbrushes weren’t happy.

Despite its beautiful appearance these dedicated enamel preservers weren’t meant to be with the bathroom shelf… No, they preferred the bit of bathroom rough… The dirty, stained old washbag.

Night after night the restless toothbrushes diligently got on with their scrubbing business. But when we tried to put our brushes down in the home we’d made for them on the shelf they bristled with anger and begged for the bag.

So, we decided not to fight our brushes anymore.  We’re letting them live their lives the way they want, by giving them the washbag for a good while without trying to force them to live in one place…

The toothbrush tour of South America started on February 24, 2011…

    I’m so excited. I can feel the tingle already. Your toothbrushes are going to have such fun/get lost/get lent/get used for getting stones out of the bottom of boots.
