Case in point. This is my bathroom. These are my hand towels hanging from the little cabinet.
The towel on the left I use to dry my hands after I use the bathroom. The towel on the right used to be a decorative towel and a wash cloth and look pretty. Then I noticed that those decorative towels were wet, messy and generally not pretty. So I started hanging a regular towel. I'd use the other towel for my hands or mouth after tooth brushing.
Then, one day, I was in the bathroom while Pete was drying off after a shower. I watched in amazement as he used that right towel TO DRY HIS BODY OFF after the shower. So in other words, I was drying my hands and face on his behind.... I asked him how long he had been doing that and he said for some time. Let's just say that I don't use the right towel any more. For ANYTHING.
Then last night I came home to this:
For those that don't know, this is a dental tool used in cleaning teeth. I have TMJ and cannot open very far. Flossing is a a killer exercise that leaves my jaw tired and cranky. I was given this my by dentist to use in getting stuck food out. It's home is in with my toothbrush.
After the towel realization I decided that I needed to get to the bottom of this one right away. So I asked Pete why it was out. First he launched into how he was cleaning something and needed to get into a small space. I was horrified. Then I looked at his face and saw him smiling. He actually used it on his teeth.
*sigh* I'm not thrilled about it, but I can live with it.
It's better to ask, than assume.
