after polling select few with the pointed q, “is this too mean to send to the booth list. people are sharing vacuums and wifi across apt units!”…i sent it anyway.

Hi all,

Anyone interested in going in on a toothbrush?

Manual only, not Sonicare, as my debt-financed budget cannot allow that extravagance. I’m open to whatever brands, have heard / read good things about Oral B, GUM and Reach. My only preference is for the softest bristles because my dentist perpetually chides me for brushing too hard.

Perhaps we can involve a google spreadsheet, find potential local matches, consider buying two toothbrushes, possibly three, and a 5-pack of floss from Costco as well? I bet we can get a deal on that, if we buy in bulk. Maybe on the vacuum cleaner that our entire class is sharing, we can attach a toothbrush holder for convenient transport.

Oh and I live in Wicker Park, probably a ten minute drive from most of you, but for the right brush and share arrangements, I’m willing to commute at least twice a day, though ideally after every meal.


CD: [Vacuum] dude is probably going to be in your cohort. I think you should attach a toothbrush to your backpack to signal to all of your classmates that you mean business!

MC: you’d be at risk of getting a new nickname assigned to you. Do you really want to be known as Oral C around campus?

KN: Surprised you didn’t offer the term “boothbrush”….yeah, too easy…

JL: I hope that [Vacuum Guy]’s affordably cleaned carpet comforts his awkwardness. Eh I’m sure you’ll both have a good laugh about it in the future, if not already… if he’s cool. If not, you can always giggle to yourself when youre around him. Hopefully the giggles overpower the awkwardness. But really I have to agree with him and would probably join his team because I hate almost everything about vacuums, especially the cost. Luckily i haven’t had to buy one, ever. And if I was confronted with that predicament I’d be tempted to just casually take one from wal-mart, or target if that’s your thing and you hate them for getting into politics. Walk through the checkout aisle and everything. Just don’t buy it and don’t stop. Whistle and be cool. Nobody’s going to think you’ve just stolen a vacuum. Double down the persuasion by carrying it out atop a stroller (also stolen). … So did he still let you into the vacushare? Also have you ever used a toothbrush that isn’t yours? Seriously though, it gives great insight (am I polluting the brush or is the brush polluting me?).
