Wait a minute....that doesn't taste right...

My Husband has sensitive teeth. This man is so anal about his oral care he should be a walking billboard for dental hygiene. He brushes meticulously and uses a sonicare electric tooth brush. He uses special non-abrasive toothpaste. He never misses a flossing. And he even uses a water pic on his gum line in the shower! And he still has sensitive teeth.

He recently got some paste that he puts on his teeth twice a day that is supposed to help with the sensitivity. He likes to keep his dental hygiene goods all over the bathroom counter and the neat freak that I am, I like to go behind him and put them all in their proper place. I think I should have put a little more thought into where the "proper place" is for his new tooth sensitivity paste because this is what transpired last night:

I'm in bed. J is conducting his 45 minute dental hygiene routine

J: "That doesn't taste right..." (and then much water running and much spitting into the sink. Thankfully I then hear laughing.)
J: "You wanna know what I just did!?"
J: "I was putting my tooth cream on and it didn't taste like strawberries like it's supposed to...I put the wrong thing on my teeth."
Me: "What did you put on them?"
J: "There were two white tubes in the cabinet side by side. I just grabbed the wrong one."
Me: "What did you grab!?"
J: "I don't want to tell you."
Me: "Tell me! It's not going to hurt you is it?
J: "I don't think so. I spit it out right away."
Me; "What did you put on your teeth!?"
J: long pause...."Butt cream."

He never even realized that I was the one who put them side by side. We just laughed our butts (pun intended) off for a good 10 minutes straight. Ummm....maybe I'll find a new "proper place" for at least one of those similar looking tubes."

I was a little uncomfortable with the proximity of "anal" with "oral" care, but when I got to the end, I suppose it fits. :)
