I once appeared in a toothpaste commercial.
This probably triggered my obsession with having perfectly white teeth. I always go to the extreme in keeping my smile bright and healthy.
This brings us to my current predicament.
You know how stubborn I can be at times?
Here’s the perfect example.
I bought this really expensive whitening toothpaste. When I started using it, I noticed I began having mouth sores and blisters around my lips. I let it pass. I thought they would simply go away.
Weeks went by and my mouth sores worsen. Plus, the blisters around my lips grew like mushrooms. To cover it up, I stopped shaving. After all, my face was my saving grace.
I told my family about the toothpaste and they were all in agreement I should stop using it. I refused to do so.
They said the formulation was probably too strong. That probably explained the mouth sores. The toothpaste cost a fortune and I couldn’t just throw it away. Mom said I was nuts.
I know buying a new one is fast and easy. But I don’t think that way. I am more into the fact I already bought one and I will continue to use it, until my teeth start to fall apart.
Blame the stars. I'm a Taurus.
