monkey pirate


This morning the worst thing that's happened to me in quite a while happened. I had a meeting at a data-center in El Segundo, so left from home instead of driving up to Santa Monica first. As a consequence I had time for coffee and breakfast - but because I was pokeying around and watching Jon Stewart and so forth, realized I had less time than I expected. I bolted down my cereal, slugged down the rest of my coffee and tried to brush my teeth very quickly.

Brushing your teeth RIGHT after eating is never a good idea. In this case, it was a spectacularly bad idea. Eating and drinking so quickly, I had to burp. I was midst tooth-brushing when I did so. The burp turned into one of those "throw up in the back of your mouth" things. Which of course I then tried to swallow, but had a mouth full of toothpaste and toothbrush, and so didn't close my mouth completely.

I thought tooth-paste and orange juice was disgusting together - I promise, tooth-paste and vomit is infinitely worse.
