“Some humpty-back camels and some..”

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.)
