the second toothbrush

what is it that's so reassuring about a piece of plastic with bristles (also made of plastic) on it? what makes it so comforting? what does this toothbrush symbolize?

if you were dreaming, this toothbrush would suggest that you are feeling defensive about any criticism directed towards you, that you are putting up a shield or barrier to protect yourself from potential hurt or that you are preoccupied with your appearance and worry about how others perceive you...

however in real life, a toothbrush, all on its own, it serves as a reminder t
o take care of yourself, I suppose. but somehow when there's two of them, that second one that you don't use means so much more, because it's someone else's. and sometimes because it's yours, but it's at his place. it's symbolic of something--that second toothbrush.

me? I'm digging the second toothbrush. so fresh and so clean-clean. and it works nicely to take care of morning breath. :)
