Shopping for a toothbrush

I went to two stores and could not find a single *normal* toothbrush.
It appears that no toothbrush available today has any two bristles the
same length or pointing in the same direction. They have racing
stripes, rubber fingers, "ergonomic" contortions, automatic carpet
height adjustment, all-wheel drive, parts that spin, parts that jiggle,
parts that play music, parts that light up, and the latest wireless
technology. They look ready to take on space travel or the dangers of
the deepest jungle. Even after gyros, I don't present a toothbrush with
that much peril.

Ahh, yes. The marketing people have finally figured out how to jazz up a toothbrush to make it sound like it'll do more so they can charge much more. My dentist still hands out the standard toothbrushes with all the same length bristles, a nice, slippery handle that's too short to comfortably reach my back teeth. (I have a big mouth, just ask my wife)
I relegate them to my garage tool chest for cleaning parts and buy one of those new-fangled toothbrushes with a comfy handle and some other bells and whistles. The catch is that my wife is a super-sale-shopper and coupon clipper, so we rarely pay more than half the shelf price for them.

Our dentist is really high tech - we get nice brushes from him. I end up
relagating a lot of them to the cleaning cupboard <g> - we all have
SonicCare brushes in our house!
