gleaming white, i wish.

i was watching a commercial yesterday of an attractive husband and wife brushing their teeth.
the lighting was bright, their clothes were crisp.
their teeth were OH SO white.
gleaming white!
then came the seller...
"proven to leave your teeth feeling fresh 5x longer than other brands..."
so i thought,
"i have to try that! my teeth will look gleaming white, and i will definitely feel the freshness lasting 5x longer!!!"
so when my tube of toothpaste ran out last night i went to replace it,
only to find that it's the same one we've been using all along.
my teeth are not gleaming like the commercial.
and i can't say that they feel any more fresh than any other toothpaste i've ever tried.
dang it.
thought this was interesting...

Wow, that's crazy that the earth's axis would be shifted by the earthquake. Thanks for sharing that. VERY interesting.

Haha! You were duped by a commercial, and it is the kind you always use. That is funny.

The earthquake thing... thinking the Time is getting closer...
