Whenever he thought about it, he felt terrible. And so, at last, he came to a fateful decision. He decided not to think about it. ~John-Roger and Peter McWilliams

Frere Rubik (sorry, I don't know how to do accented letters on my laptop),

In reply to Board Question ^89546, yes, I agree that having a guest toothbrush is pretty classy. I'm impressed. But it made me wonder--is every guest of yours expected to use this same toothbrush, or do you change it in between guests?

Also, you're my favorite writer.

A:

Dear Red,

First, AWWWWWWWW!!! Thank you for the kind words!

Second, the guest toothbrush has only been used once; my little brother used it when he spent the night earlier this year. Since then, I have not had any more guests, so I haven't had to deal with any guest-toothbrush logistics. If my brother spends the night again, he would, of course, be welcome to use it, but I'm not sure if I would press it on some other guest or if I would buy them a complimentary toothbrush if they decided to stay with me (though that latter option sounds even classier than the guest toothbrush is now).

Food for thought, I guess.
