*Lill calls Jill at work*

Lill: Why do women transform the ladies room into a public dental hygienist’s office at lunch?

Jill: …Says the girl who hasn’t had a cleaning since our days of university healthcare coverage…

Lill: I had to wait over five minutes for sink access after relieving myself on account of the teeth and gum scrubbing rituals of the entire 14th floor.

Jill: *Snigger* Healthy gums equal a happy smile.

Lill: Argh!! These people all have OCD!! There’s the frantic tooth mauling which inevitably produces excess mouth froth that will always land upon the sink, counter and faucet; followed by vigorous flossing which in turn launches tiny morsels of ones lunch onto the bathroom mirrors; all ending with aggressive gurgling and swishing of mouthwash to again be spewed into the sink and surrounding area. I then watched in amazement/horror as the 535 pieces of toothcare paraphernalia were methodically placed back into their accompanying ‘kit’ and a single sheet of paper towel was used to wipe the mirror, sink and faucet, thereby ensuring all tooth/mouth/gum matter was spread evenly in consideration of the next person’s visit. I ended up leaving and using the mens room sink to wash up – at least there I was comforted by the urine coated floor and distinct lack of wintergreen scent.

Jill: So what you’re saying is that you both respect and admire your coworkers’ meticulous commitment to dental hygiene…

Lill: I hope they’re all in dentures by 40…

About Lill and Jill

We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates. We blog to capture the seemingly trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. We ask that you think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90′s boy-bands, and regular inappropriateness.
