Public Service Announcement

I often laugh at products that say obvious things, such as not edible, do not stick in eye, etc. Seriously, I will laugh for hours at this. This one is my personal favorites: 'NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - A toilet brush with a tag that says "Do not use for personal hygiene"'. Hysterical, right?!

Well, I'd like to implement my own. I have a toothache. I've had one for awhile now, but I have a dentist appointment in a month, so I can suck up the pain til then I thought. It was bothering me a lot this morning, so I thought, "go get some orajel." So that's what I did.

Here's where things went downhill:

I ran in to CVS. I have ADD so I forgot why I was there. I was distracted by the nailpolishes. I may or may not have bought some. That's a mute point. Anyway, I quickly remembered 'toothache!' and ran to the tooth section.

Looks promising, right? WRONG!

NOWHERE does it say don't get this ish in your mouth. Granted, there aren't instructions, but still!

I put this stuff on my tooth and it came out super fast. So now my whole friggin mouth is numb, my lips are number, and my tongue is numb. Ugh.

So PSA folks. Use with caution. Apply a teeny weeny amount to your tooth ONLY. And don't swallow it. I'm sure that would be disasterous. Geez!!!


  1. Ewwwwwww! I've done this! It's so gross. And I freak out and think I can't breathe if I can't feel myself swallow (stupid, I know) so I totally freaked out.

  2. hahahha, reminds me of the time i was spending the night at my grandmothers and grabbed the nearest white tube of stuff when i was brushing my teeth... it was preparation h, not toothpaste. i figured it out when it didn't foam after i had been brushing for a while.

  3. Hahaha I've never used this and after reading this post, never EVER will.
