Just one of those nights
| I brush my teeth the same way each night before I go to bed. |
The toothbrush is in the same location
The toothpaste is in the same location.
The handsoap is in the same location.
I start my nightly routine of washing my hands and just as I have the soap in one hand, something stops my routine cold.
The sink isn't empty.
There is a lone spoon.
I washed the lone spoon and set it in the drying rack to dry.
I then take my toothbrush and start brushing my teeth only to realize that there is a funny taste.
I don't remember getting the toothpaste.
I just put dish soap on my toothbrush and now have to wash out my mouth.
After rinsing out my mouth sufficiently, I check the spoon and sure enough, it smells like hand soap.
I finish my routines and just as I am dring off after showering, my wife walks in and asks:
Why is there a toothbrush in the drying rack?
If you run much of your life on routines as I do, take my advice:
If your routine is interrupted and it is a short routine, just start it over.
Otherwise, you might end up with a soapy mouth.
