In these Groundhog Days of lockdown, with every day seeming the same as yesterday, and just as unproductive, we like to give ourselves little treats.
Recently we both bought trendy new, whistles and bells electric toothbrushes. They buzz madly for 30 seconds for each dental quadrant. My wife said this morning that for her, the teeth buzzing routine came round so often that it always seemed like only an hour ago since the last buzzathon.
“Me too!” I agreed.
“But yesterday my toothbrush was on-charge downstairs, so I sneaked a treat... I used a normal toothbrush!” she confessed.
