On The Truth About Your Smile

@mollyb Yeah, I have always followed up flossing with vigorous rinsing, and I usually drink water first thing in the morning as well. You've spelled out the proper flossing method more clearly for me.
I have a Sonicare now, so I've got that going for me.

On The Truth About Your Smile

Do you brush before or after eating breakfast? I used to brush first thing in the morning because my mouth would be gross and it never occurred to me to do otherwise until I recently read that people often brushed after they ate. I guess half an hour after breakfast is the best if you had coffee with it? I'd also never heard about flossing before brushing. In a related story, I was prescribed a gingivitis rinse last month....

On The Miseducation of Marie Antoinette

The image which we still think of as being "Marie Antoinette" is largely nothing but anti-royal propaganda, which was extremely sexist. She did the best she could in a difficult situation.

On Mad Men, Season 7 Premiere: Is This Where the Fire Starts?

@Lizzie_Lix I thought he was her agent too -- and I figured Don's "I'm not worried" reply was an amused nod to the agent being gay as all get out.

On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

@harebell I accidentally deleted, dang. Anyway I'm heterozygous for Factor V; I was already having different problems with Ortho Tri-Cyclen and didn't really mind going off it onto a lower-dose, differently made pill. I did see a specialist who felt that a decade of being on OTC with no signs of a clot meant I was fine, but it is of course still good to know about the disorder, and it brought it to my family's attention in case they had it....

On Which of the "Three Personality Regions" in America Fits You Best?

I, a native Georgian, have been told by coworkers that because I don't beat around the bush or go out of my way to schmooze, I'm an honorary Northerner (they say it's a compliment).
