Talk About Letting Things Go

"Oh I hope he's not going to be all ruthless on my mouth." Mrs F muses to Mr F about her upcoming dental appointment.

"He won't be... your teeth won't be as bad as mine." Mr F replies

"Well you're not a dentist." Mrs F mutters.

"No... I haven't flossed in a year... I don't even brush as frequently as I used to." Mr F says with conviction.

Mrs F chokes on her water

"I can't tell you how many nights I'm just like "screw it I'm going to bed". Mr F continues

Good to know.

So that's the move, huh? Cute. :)

Mr. Hicktowndiva flosses once a week. That is because business time does not happen unless his teeth have been flossed. And yes, I enforce it. There is no business time in my house until the week old garlic is out of someone's teeth. This is the only effective method I've found of motivating him to floss.

Oversharing moment of the day over.

Mrs Furious said...

Yep that's it.
If he sits on the couch while I'm watching something (not even NEXT to me) I'll just say "Are you making your move?"

I'm still laughing about it.

Good idea... although around here that would only add up to a dozen or two flossings a year
How's that for oversharing ;)

Flossing is overrated.

Missives From Suburbia said...

OMG!! I thought the "screw it" line was funny, and then I nearly choked on the couch being his one and only place to make his move.

Ohhh... I paused in my comment to read the other comments, and now I'm cracking up at Hicktowndiva and you all over again, Mrs. F.

Mrs Furious said...

Oh I don't floss... well.. except the night before a dentist appt ;)

We're here to make other people feel better about their sex lives... it's on our family mission statement ;)

I am sad that I missed the giveaway! I will be spending the evenings this week catching up on your blog. :)

That really is disturbing and hilarious all at the same time! One night as I was about to get in the shower, my hub was brushing his teeth...with MY toothbrush! Evidently he had all of a sudden become color blind...then all I could think was how often has that happened???

Love Mr.F's signature move!

Mrs Furious said...

Hahaha... when Mr F and I were dating I thought it was kind of sexy that we shared a toothbrush... now the very thought makes me want to scream "Cooties!"

Oh I'm sorry you missed it :(

Preppy Mama said...

Ok, this just gave me my much needed chuckle for the day, no wait, total belly laugh!!!

Robin said...

Hahaha! Very funny. :)

Now I have to be the party pooper. Dudes, floss. Otherwise you may end up with $50,000 worth of dental bills. (not that I know anything about that. and no, i didn't type too many zeros.)

ah... pucker up, Mrs. F. :)

P/F said...

Here's my bit of oversharing Mrs. F.: My husband's pretty bad at remembering to brush his teeth before bed every night; but when we're getting ready to go to sleep and I hear him fire up the Sonicare, I know that he's looking for action. Is it bad that I'll hear him brushing his teeth at night and think, 'ugh'?

HAHAHAH I'm pretty sure the Mister does the same thing.

I recently posted about how much I hate going to the dentist. The sound that the little metal tool (dagger) makes as it scrapes layers off my teeth makes my skin crawl!

hicktowndiva said...

Robin, I am totally on board with the flossing--I never skip a day.

I'm well under $50K...it only took me $5,000 to learn that little incredibly painful lesson via gum graft surgery. I sure do floss now, though!

Mrs Furious said...

that is hilarious!

isn't your surgery TODAY?! Good luck!!!

Preppy Mama,
Oh I'm glad :)

The first thing I did this AM is feel his toothbrush... mine was still damp... his was DRY!

The dentist is the worst. Today they measured my bone... NIGHTMARE.
