Separate Toothpaste

After about 3 months of being married, my husband informed me that we needed to have a serious talk. My mind swam with thoughts: Oh no is he going to ask me to switch to 2% milk instead of 1%? Is he going to tell me that he doesn't like my cooking? Did he get fired? "The talk" was about none of the above. It was about toothpaste. No, not the type of toothpaste, rather the fact that he wanted us to have separate tubes of toothpaste. He could no longer share with me because the way that I cared for my toothpaste tube was unacceptable, disgusting, and quite perturbing to him. I was devastated. When you're married you are supposed to share things like the toothpaste. What next, separate beds??? My sulking and dramatics did nothing to sway his opinion. From then on, he determined that we would have our own toothpaste tubes. 
The other day, I looked at my toothpaste and then glanced over at his and I finally understood after 3 1/2 years of marriage why my husband would not share a tube of toothpaste with me. 



I know I know, some confessions are better left unconfessed. What will people think of me now? Maybe I should clean up my act...naaaah

omgosh! I seriously busted out laughing at the picture! That is so what our toothpaste looks like, all because of me.
My husband would be so jealous of yours to know that he gets a seperate tube. My husband hates the way I care for our toothpaste.
This post has me rolling for some reason!

HAHAHA!! Well... I am so THANKFUL that Chuck and I share the same values on our toothpaste tubes!! BOTH neat... and I am completely surprised that I would EVER share that trait with Chuck!! I will NOT even share a toothbrush with him... he USES mine - and it is HIS!! That just grosses me out!!!! He does NOT care!! YUCK!

Thank you for making me laugh! Yeah Dom and I have separate tubes. Mainly because he like a different flavor! I do squeeze in the middle and it drives him crazy. So, a couple bucks saves a fight! Thank God for Wal Mart.
