Apropos of nothing

So, I usually use Arm and Hammer toothpaste, but I couldn't find it this morning. I guess I'm out. Either theCSO or one of my housemates had bought Aquafresh and I decided to try that.

I brushed, spit into the sink and noticed with horror the pinkness of what I'd just spat out. "Damn," I thought to myself. "I have some SERIOUS gingivitis all of a sudden."

Around then I noticed that aquafresh toothpaste is white and red.

Well, that's stupid...

who felt she should say something light today as the CB has been sort of ponderous lately.

Thank you! I had a similar experience when a roommate bought a new toothpaste of some sort that she said we all should try.

Are you old enough to remember a mouthwash called Lavoris? Well, I'm sure some of your readers are: it claimed to be used by 8 out of ten dentists in their offices. It turns out that was true, but the reason was that it was red, and therefore hid the blood when people spit (expectorated) -- thus improving their patient relations.
