New Thing #244: Go go Gadget toothbrush!
A year ago, I bought a toothbrush on a trip to Connecticut, and totally forgot about it. During my current trip to CT, I found it in my suitcase and immediately decided to replace the travel-size brush I had with me. To my utter delight, the new-old forgotten toothbrush turned out to be a self-contained pulsating electric toothbrush. So I used an electric toothbrush. I always pictured them as being bulky plug-ins with complicated replaceable rotors and, like, motors that you have to take to an auto shop to fix. Not so this dainty beaut; seems the battery that it comes with is the only one you ever get/need/want, and you simply turn it on and off by pressing the plus and minus buttons. Otherwise (and in the package) it looks just like a regular toothbrush (hence my not knowing when I bought it and for a year after that it was electric).
