One More Reason Why I Love Him

Last night after crawling in bed the conversation went like this:

Me: Uggh, your breath stinks.
Daniel: I brushed my teeth!
Did you use toothpaste?
I did this morning.
Why didn't you use toothpaste tonight?
.... cause it tastes funky.
It tastes funky?
Yeah, it tastes funky, I don't really like it.
Huh. It's just mint, you don't like mint toothpaste? What kind do you like?
Uh, I dunno.
What kind did you have growing up? Did you like it?
I don't remember, it was "ok".
Do you want chocolate? (his last dentist visit included getting his teeth cleaned with chocolate flavored toothpaste! GROSS!)
No, that would be like going to the dentist.
Do you want bubble gum flavor?
So you don't know what kind you like, you just know that what we have now tastes funky?

And men think that we women are hard to figure out!! LOL!! Minty toothpaste is minty toothpaste - to me. It's just regular Colgate. The tube before it was some Quixtar stuff that was minty, too. Guess I'll have to get out all the different flavors and kinds of my free toothpaste and see if we can find a brand and flavor that twangs his buds (tastebuds, that is). I'll buy him whatever kind he wants if it means I don't have to kiss dungeon breath.

This is really funny! I hope you can come to a good solution--maybe breath mints by the bed might be in order until you find the right flavor of toothpaste!

I just about died when I read this. Men are sooooo complicated. We recently had a conversation about toothpaste as well. Not only was the flavor un suitable, the shape of the tube/container was not right. ARRGGH. So, Ted went and bought his own toothpaste and I, who is supposed to be the hard to please, complicated female, will use the several tubes of reg. toothpaste.

I like how you put that these types of things are another reason you love Daniel. I have a hard time not seeing it as a criticism and a major inconvenience for me. I need to do much, much better in that area.

I'm not married, but I agree whole-heartedly that guys and men are much harder to figure out then women!! I enjoyed reading this post, Mini, it was funny!

Rennie is that way about certain things. You've got to pick your battles.
