Heavy thoughts about brushing teeth

Tooth brushing is so interesting. Probably someone could make up a whole new system of personalities by categorizing the way people brush their teeth. Like sunsigns: "Your toothbrushing personality is RACOON which means that you really like playing in the sandbox and writing to-do lists and you are compatible with the TAPIR toothbrush personality..."
I am definitely one of those whole-hearted toothbrushers who likes a mouthful of bubbles and brushes vigorously up down and around and wayyyy back (and gags). Then there are the lazy kind who sort of brush while they talk, with a mouth almost entirely devoid of toothpaste; who like to be able to look in the mirror and see the progress they're making without all that white foamy stuff obscuring their vision. Then there are the kind that brush in stages and re-toothpaste their toothbrush several times, like a "shampoo" and "conditioner".
One thing I am NOT is a swallower. There are some (I really don't know how many, statistically, but I hope it's very few) people (mostly the "recreational toothbrusher" sort, who like to space their toothbrushing over a larger span of time and multitask whilst they scrub) who can actually be brushing their teeth, have you ask them a question, and swallow, and answer. That really amazes me. That must say something for a love life of sorts. Or maybe it says something for a SHORT life since the Life with Grandpa will tell you that toothpaste is poison and ought never to be swallowed. But who am I to say. I'm no Doctor Koger, just your average toothbrusher. (Wouldn't it technically be a teethbrush? I don't know anyone who uses a toothbrush on just one tooth. Wouldn't that actually be pretty difficult? Then again what do I know. Maybe my teeth are just small...which does not explain why they are too big for my mouth and had to grow in mashing into each other for lack of space. Maybe my MOUTH is small, which is possibly something that I ought to factor in to the love-life of my toothbrushing personality.)
