Power Tool

My dentist (the tech actually) recommended that I get an electric toothbrush. I got the Oral-B Triumph. It comes with a wireless display unit. It normally shows the time, but when you brush your teeth it turns into a stopwatch telling you how long you've been brushing. The toothbrush kind of buzzes every thirty seconds to signal that you should move to a different quadrant of your mouth. After two minutes a smiley face appears.

When I first started using the toothbrush it was so funny. I was drooling and splattering toothpaste everywhere. I think over the last month I've finally got the hang of it. I'm now brushing my teeth for two minutes twice a day, and hopefully minimizing plaque build up--and drool.
