This makes me happy:
I scored the same as Marianne. I wonder what question I missed? I think I know.. I have to do some research to be sure. (BTW, if I had scored LOWER than Marianne, this portion of the post would have never seen the light of day.... just sayin', in an effort to keep this blog honest.
Our new venture (which REALLY makes me happy, but that is happy news for another day) is coming along. So... keep tuned in so you can find out (one day) our surprise! It won't be long.. I promise.
Believe it or not... today has been declared National Fresh Breath Day. Yeah, I know... I couldn't believe it either? Do you suppose I should buy stock in breath mints today?
You don't want to be the only one not celebrating this special day. So, from the founder of this day, here are some tips for you:(my comments are in italics
1. Brush your teeth, cheeks and gums with a chlorine dioxide toothpaste. cheeks? uhhhhhh....
2. Comb your tongue. I actually brush mine... you reckon that counts?
3. Use a hydromagnetic irrigator.
4. Wash your mouth with a stabilized chlorine rinse.
5. Sip room temperature water or mint lemon water.
6. Avoid alcoholic or caffeinated drinks as they dry your mouth. Trust me... you do NOT want me to avoid my coffee... it would not be a pleasant sight.
7. Use a mouth moisturizer or a saliva stimulant to keep your mouth moist.
8. Eat fresh breath herbs like parsley, dill, basil or peppermint.
9. Place a mint pouch in your mouth - it's good for 3 hours of minty breath. Ignore the fact that you might look like you are chawin' a wad of tobacco
10. Read "Breathless ..." for more detailed fresh breath advice.I actually found a link to the pamphlet she's talking about here... it was broken, so I didn't include it.
In honor of this special day, I bring you this very important message on the dangers of halitosis and what could conceivably happen should you ignore today.(Warning: it's long, but imho, well worth the time... you've GOT to see the end)
