All I wanted was a toothbrush. A simple toothbrush, like the one pictured. I mean, a toothbrush is a toothbrush, right? Nothing new here. Just buy one and go home.
OK. You do it. Go on. Go to your favourite grocery store, pharmacy, Walmart; whatever. And find that toothbrush!
I couldn't find one. Nowadays, they all have odd configurations of bristles--some stiff, some softer, some sticking out at odd angles. Some have these little rubbery things around the outside of the real bristles, like some sort of alien extrusion.
And they all, without exception, have fat handles. Even the ones that don't have batteries, or some fat trademark character, like a certain purple dragon--they ALL have fat handles.
Now, I've managed to hold onto my toothbrush for a lot of years, without a squishy, sure-grip gel handle.
I just want one that fits through the opening in the toothbrush holder.
Is that too much to ask?
