Oops I did it again!

I have a habit of being absent minded/forgetful when it comes to my toothbrush. Be it slumber parties, or out of town trips, the one thing you can count on me for having left behind is the toothbrush.

While this can be accredited to the fact that I always brush them pearly whites (?) before any journey, and hence its the LAST thing that's supposed to be packed. (But isn't), its a strange affliction, which leaves me with owning multiple brushes... since I return with one from wherever I go.

Having appropriately set the context, It was a matter of extreme pride (to me, in my mind) therefore, when having brushed in my parents room the morning, I remembered at night to go over to their bathroom, and fish out (my?) green toothbrush and begin the procedure with a pleased smile on my face.

Mom: (on seeing me in her bathroom) "What're you doing?"
Me :(superior smile on my face, brush in mouth) "Brushing. "
Mom: "I Hope you took your own brush THIS time."
Me :(was waiting for this moment of my cleverness) "OF COURSE. I had brushed here in the morning, hence I came her and took my OWN Brush"
Mom: (slaps hand on forehead) "I had kept your brush back in your bathroom in the evening"
I had brushed with my dads toothbrush. (P.S - its identical to mine) :/

By now my mom and I were in splits, laughing hysterically. Enter Dad.
Me : "Daddy, I'm sorry i used your toothbrush, By mistake"
Dad "which one, green?"
Me: "Yep, sorry"
Dad: "I Don't use it"
Me: (breathing a sigh of relief) "You don't, that's awesome!"
Dad: "Yeah, its my tongue cleaner"

:\ OMG.

I have a bag with a few spares. A spare hairbrush, tooth brush, bottle of deo, some random DV tapes, a three-way small pin multi-adapter, blank CDs, headphones (with mic), a notebook with a plethora of pens (of which maybe one works), and a spare charger for my phone. Its contents only leave the bag's warm embrace when the bag itself is outside the house, and they all get deposited back in the bag. The bag often leaves the house with me, and remains, untouched, on the backseat of the car unless I'm spending the night out, when it sees some use. Hell of a lifesaver.

Serendipity said...

INSANELY AWESOME idea, Reno :D

Now, if only I could bring meself to be that prudent :D

p.s. the contents of the bag you mention above bears a stark resemblance to my Handbag :D plus two handtowels, sunglasses, mint, i-somthing, and the book im currently reading :D:D

mesoliloquy said...

Ha..ha..ha..I was expecting worse. I thought he would say 'I used to clean the washbasin on something'.

I keep in mind to choose different color toothbrush to avoid any kind of confusion.

Renovatio said...

Mesoliloquy, why stop there, there're worse places that can be cleaned out rather nicely with a toothbrush.

Aditya said...

bwahahahaha!

And yes, I echo the spare-toothbrush-in-travel-kit idea.

This comes from the guy who has somehow ended up with three toothbrushes on his basin at the moment!

muthu said...

hahahahahahahaha...........

that left me in splits.......

I too have the same habit but when i forget my brush during traveling, I simply use neem sticks.... :)

And hey i have written a few 55 fiction short stories.... i would love to have your comment on those......

utopia said...

Hahah! Now thats something I could do too. Thankfully I make sure my roomies and I have different coloured brushes. :D
I had this ridiculously irritating habit of absentmindedly using my sister's toothbrush to clean the hair brushes. I remember being whacked by my Mum upteenth number of times but to no avail cos it just would not register that tis her tooth brush and not the spare one hahah!

Serendipity said...

Snowie! lol, if my friend J was here, she'd tell you the same thing. she has a toothbrush for me at hers as well... :D

Hitchster! Hommany days to your vacation!:D

Hello mesoliloquy! OMG, i wudve died had i brushed with the washbasin brush. :D

Reno! hahahaha! {mentally thanks god for tongue cleaner)

Hi Adi! Where've you been! Three toothbrushes? Not bad ;) One for the master and one for the dame, and one for the little boy who lives down the lane? HAHAHAHA!! sorry, that just begged to be said.

Serendipity said...
