The Blatherings Of A Blitherer

A Few Things I’ve Learned

May23
  • Despite their claims to the contrary, flossing with floss works better than using an oral irrigator (waterpik etc). It cleans your teeth better, leaves your gums healthier.
  • At-home dental products that make claims about reducing tartar mean reducing tartar of the future. They can prevent it from getting worse. They can’t do anything about existing tartar.
  • If you go ten years between teeth cleanings it’ll take more than one visit to get your super gross teeth clean. Take some ibuprofen before going in.
  • Your head has a lot of empty space in it. Not YOUR head specifically. All heads. This can make infections hard to spot. So much empty space.
  • If you have an amazon.com gift card you cannot use it on amazon.ca.
  • You cannot buy an amazon.com gift card and sent it to someone to use on amazon.ca. They are totally separate entities.
  • Shipping to Canada from the USA is pretty expensive.
  • Shopping for a new television is dizzying and terrifying.
  • Pervasive motor sounds thrumming through your home at night are ominous and hard to track down. Is it a generator? Somebody’s AC condenser (switching on in 50* weather)? Attempted communication from Beyond The Veil? Hard to tell.
  • Sometimes kids get convinced squirrels are venomous and there’s really nothing you can do to convince them otherwise.
