The way I see it, it really just comes down to where you store things!

My last visit to the dentist a few weeks ago was with the hygienist.  After she finished with the x-rays, cleaning and flossing, she commented on the fact that it was obvious I had been flossing every day, and wanted to know what had changed.

I simply told her that instead of storing my floss in the medicine cabinet, I store it in my liquor cabinet now.

Chances of me going in there are much better than me going in the medicine cabinet.  

My toothbrush is in a holder on the wall, I know where that is at all times.

Since we didn't have to go over the proper way to floss "again" we spent the rest of our time together, along with my dentist, discussing martini's..............shaken or stirred, rocks or up, olives or twist..............


We solved some of the problems of the world!

Did anyone think this post was going to be about where or how to store things in your home?

You know me better!

That's how my Dad drank his Liz, and I did too for a long time, but now I can't do the juice, but still love "three big olives" in mine.  Yum.

You never know for sure with me Jeanne and Ralph...........glad you enjoyed it.

That's what works for me Gloria............thanks for stopping by today.

Hey Roger, if it helps you to remember, then why change if it creates a good habit...much better than picking your teeth with the plastic toothpick filled with olives! I like it.

BARFF- now, that makes sense to me.  It's like if I have to leave Larry a note, I put it on the fridge because that's the first place he goes.

Roger, thank you for the great advice, my dentist has been complaining that I am not flossing, who would have guessed I will keep it in the Wine Rack from now on:))

It's such a simple solution, glad I could share it with you Endre............your dentist will be so happy and surprised your next visit.  Keep him in suspense, don't tell him our solution.

I floss and I brush and it doesn't help.  You should have gone into more detail about the storage part.  That must be the answer.

Good afternoon Roger. Pretty soon you will need a bigger liquor cabinet for all the other items you don't want to forget. lol

Not much to tell Jane...........just stored somewhere that I go into frequently so I always remember to use it.

Wow, I never thought of that Randy, some day an entire room will be deemed "liquor cabinet"..............LOL

Evidently not Sharon, if so, I'd never have an issue at the dentists office.

Roger. I wonder if you have thought of a coffin cove for storing your hygene products.

Good luck and success.

Roger, it is always a treat to visit this blog, I learn something new everytime.  Wish my Dad was still living, he'd have loved this story.

Not until you brought it up #50, but it's not such a bad idea.

Isn't that the truth Lou, glad you appreciate it.

The crazy part is Mona, it's a true story, I couldn't make this stuff up.    It would be nice if your Dad was still living, we could all sit around having adult beverages and telling stories.Sometimes I just shake my head at the things that come out of my mouth, but it doesn't stop them from coming out.  Sorry I missed your call today.  By the time I got the message I'm sure you were in the middle of your appointment.  Hope it went well.

Very cautious to make sure that doesn't happen GG...........wouldn't want to waste the good stuff!  I think of you and your husband Olive every time I make a martooni!

Do you need to "shake it up" or start from scratch?
