“Toothbrush,” eh? Really? One would think it a simple blogging word prompt. Well, that it is — but what can be said or heard of a toothbrush that might be longer than one sentence?
“I have (found/lost/dropped/vacuumed/flushed/levitated) a toothbrush.”
“Whose toothbrush has the dog (cat/ferret/iguana/tarantula/parrot/goat/boa/raccoon/squirrel) got (now)?”
“‘Brush the dog’s teeth,’ Doc? (Maybe you can just send me around to the folks with sheep and llamas and I can do theirs, too; those are really groady — might be lucrative! Heck, maybe I can wrestle some beavers up to the surface — we don’t want to forget ol’ Orangetooth, do we?) ‘And the cat, too’? Au contraire, I’ll save the cat detailing for YOU.”
That paragraph doesn’t work as an essay, I fear. I think, really, the prompt might’ve been more interesting as “beakbrush.” We’ve seen what crows pick at. Turkey vultures, too..
(Sorry if I got that song stuck in your head, now.)
