My toothbrush. Seriously, the batteries have just about run out of juice. I was thinking about asking for a rechargeable electric toothbrush for Christmas. Then I thought about how common electric toothbrushes are becoming. And I thought ‘wow… Manual toothbrushes (teethbrush?) are dying… Someday they’ll cease to exist.’
Such an important item in our lives is starting to disappear… Something no household is without… And yet nobody is in an uproar about it. Nobody is sad that the toothbrush is dying. Why? Could it be because the toothbrush itself isn’t actually disappearing? Noo… It can’t be.
The electric toothbrush cleans my teeth better. Leaves my breath fresher. And frankly, that’s just a bonus for everyone. The need for the toothbrush hasn’t disappeared. It’s just taking on a new, more modern form.
Switch gears. Media. Newspapers. Television. The need to communicate important issues. FYI… It’s a manual toothbrush. And we are all starting to see how much cleaner our teeth can be with the electric. Give it some time. Let us innovate to fail faster and grow stronger… Our electric toothbrushes will leave our teeth and gums clean and strong and disease free. The Internet will get there too. Don’t worry. You’ll see.
