Musings

Every time I shower I brush my teeth while showering. But I don’t like to keep my toothbrush in the shower because I’ll need it again later next to the sink. I keep a cup on the counter where I store my toothbrush. So after brushing, and before shampooing, I crack the shower curtain and give one slow toss of the toothbrush with the aim of landing it in the cup. It requires a good amount of arc on the throw with the brush sitting flat in my hand, brush-side away from the counter. Next is a long and slow follow through where the brush should do 34 of a backflip.

A perfect shot.

It has probably been two months since my last successful attempt. Today is going to be a good day.
