It's Electric - Boogie Woogie Woogie Woogie

When I went to the dentist in January for my 6-month cleaning and checkup, I wasn't intending to leave with a super-deluxe Braun Oral B Professional Care electric toothbrush cleaning system. I am, after all, the King of ADD and a control freak, so having to count 2 seconds on each tooth (inside, outside, and surfaces ... that's over 2 minutes!) while I just stand there letting it do the work is usually more than I can bear.

But the truth was the new year had just begun so that meant Flex Spending Dollars had kicked in and I am, at my root, also the Ruler Of Impulse Shopping. Plus I once saw a paparazzi picture of Matthew McConaughey in his driveway using one of these and in my head that means that if I use it, I too can be Matthew McConaughey. Except I don't really want to be.

After the purchase I saw something that Martha Stewart wrote and it may've been a list of things you should do. And she included using an electric toothbrush. Begrudgingly I felt affirmed and validated because she is, in fact, Martha Stewart. But I also think Martha Stewart is a complete and total douche and yeah, she can suck it.

But when I do commit to using it (about 70% of the time), I do think it's pretty awesome. The package I bought from my dentist actually included 2 toothbrushes and this really neat travel case so I'm all set for fly-guy teeth even when I'm jet setting.

My recommendation? Yes.
