pondering the paste*

Is it weird to brush one's teeth in a semi-public bathroom? I feel weird brushing my teeth in places I don't usually brush them. It's the spitting thing. I imagine others thinking it's gross, but I don't know why. It's not like they're going to scoop out the draining water and drink it. (Now, there's an image for you.)

I just don't want my breath to smell like scallions all afternoon, so I'll stick with the brushing and try not to think so much about what others think (unless everyone really does think it's disgusting).

(And, I suppose I should be much less worried about what others think in general. I've been thinking about that a lot lately and will write about that later. That is one of those ever-evolving, never-ending topics that I never actually get around to writing about because it feels to damned daunting. Oh, those topics torment me.)


* Oh my, oh my, I've watched a certain movie entirely too many times because my post title makes me think "Wheeze the juice!" and I'm a dork, I know.

No, it's not disgusting. Also, you're right; it does not matter what others think, especially on the little matters. I add that last part, because I think it's impossible for people not to worry what others think on bigger issues (such as when making a public speech, or something of that nature). I figure, why add stress to our lives by worrying what people will think on the small stuff. Don't sweat it. :) Finally, it may be a horrible movie, but I used to love Encino Man. Bu-uddy! (Perhaps you thought of this movie because Paulie Shore is going to be giving a show in town soon?)

Yeah, I keep seeing those billboards. :)

Thanks for your levelheadedness. I add stress to everything.
