Slices of Life

The great toothbrush takeover   By Jill Pertler   Something is awry around here. I believe my household slipped through a wormhole and the rules of the cosmic universe are no longer in effect. In other words, my life is spinning out of control and reality’s gone right along with it. Something’s fishy with the toothbrushes.
