But where do you rinse?

I was just coming in from the basement and saw a guy walking down the sidewalk. He stopped, and put something in his mouth.

I thought maybe he was lighting a cigarette. However, it was very long; too long to be a cigarette. And this guy didn't exactly look like some hipster douchebag who might be using some sort of retro cigarette holder.

As I climbed the steps to my deck and got closer, I could see it was a toothbrush. He started walking again, this time while brushing his teeth.

Oh dear. At least he didn't probe anything other than his mouth. In Seattle's local rag there is a whole section dedicated to exposing disgusting public grooming. People submit stories of whatever they see, and some of it has been truly disturbing. Many a good (disgusting) story therein has lain.

Thank goodness for small favors, right?

It's a damn shame that so often the best stories are the most disgusting.
