thanks, nick

Posted by Picasa so, i am one of those people. the people that squeeze the toothpaste tube from the middle, with no regard for how messy it looks. yeah...THOSE people. you are probably wincing right now.

is that supposed to say something about me? is it supposed to mean that i am messy and unorganized? is it supposed to mean that i don’t take care of my personal possessions? am i self-absorbed and hasty and irrational? or...does it mean that people are more important than things to me? that i seize the day (and, apparently, my toothpaste tube)? am i desiring the very best out of each moment?

or does it just mean that i don’t take time to think about how i squeeze toothpaste out of a tube? (just for the record, when it gets low, i start rolling. i do like to get my money’s worth!)

the squeeze-religiously-from-the-bottom-ers don’t bother me. i respect their ways. i give them props for efficiency and the appearance of organization. nick is one of these people. i am amazed at how we coexist so peacefully in our tiny little closet of a bathroom.

i walked into the bathroom this morning, ready to banish my newly acquired coffee breath. there was my toothpaste tube, sitting happily in the ceramic cup, cuddling up next to nick’s toothpaste tube. (i have different toothpaste because of those dang mouth ulcers.)

only, something was different. my toothpaste had been neatly pushed to the top of the tube and the bottom was folded up. i stood on my white fluffy bath mat and giggled.

I love the psychoanalyzation... and if I may give you advice as a counselor, I'd love to give you my interpretation:
I think it means you like to squeeze the toothpaste from the middle of the toothpaste tube. Period. Enough said. End of story. HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love you sister!!! You make me smile!
