OK, so it's Friday night, and I'm all hopped up on cold meds, so humor here for a minute and offer some input.
The Redhead went to get my medicine earlier, and she came back with some extra stuff — including some new toothbrushes, which is a good idea, considering mine is obviously infected with strep throat.
Here's the problem, though: She got two blue ones, one pink one and one ... green one.
Now, here's the deal. I'm a simple man. I like simple, time-tested, functional things. The most time-tested toothbrush setup in a coed bathroom is the man uses a blue one, and the woman uses a pink one.
I swear that The Redhead and I have had like three fights ever, and one was in the middle of a Wal-Mart when she said I took too long in the toothbrush aisle, and I snapped at her about the importance of the blue-pink toothbrush theory — well, more of a fact than a theory, but you get my point.
Anyway, I'm not allowing the green toothbrush in the bathroom, and that's that. I might get confused one day and use the wrong one, and I'll get yelled at for that, and that's ridiculous.
I'm pretty dumb. I don't know many things. But one of the things I do know is that I use the blue toothbrush, and I don't use the pink one. This worked when I had to share a bathroom with my sister all throughout childhood, and it works now. I've lasted 30 years on this planet, and one of the main reasons I've done so is because of simple things like the blue-pink toothbrush theory. I won't know what to do if there's a green toothbrush in my bathroom. I might black out or something.
Could y'all please, for the love of everything holy, explain to The Redhead that I am right and she in wrong in this particular situation.
This is important, obviously.
My sister once tried to get a non-pink toothbrush when we were kids, and let's just say ... it didn't end well for her.
I love The Redhead. I don't want this escalating into a domestic situation. But so help me, I am not backing down this time.

I will delete all posts in this thread that do not agree with mine if I have to, FWIW.
Brother, as long as she isn't using a blue toothbrush, there shouldn't be any doubt about which one is yours as long as you always are using a blue toothbrush. Your meds have made you delusional. Love ya man, get better soon. lol
If you can't remember that between two toothbrushes, a blue one and one of any other color, yours is always the blue one...
you are an ignoramus.
After 23 years of marriage I can honestly say you are right, however, you cannot win an argument with a woman over something like this. A woman will simply hold her ground just to prove she has the power over you (and we don't want to lose the privilege of partaking in that "power". My suggestion to you Wes is to go blue and forget about it, it's not worth the fight (unless that is what you want so you can "kiss and make up").

Choose your battles wisely Wes. Fight only when you have firm ground to stand on. While you make a very well thought out argument, you don't have a leg to stand on. Any moron can remember which toothbrush is his. If you keep fussing at her about this she will come home with toothbrushes all the same color- her color. Suck it up- straighten up and fly right- life is not a piece of cake
Wes - you will lose this fight. Every male on this board may agree with you but you will still lose the battle... Trust me on this one. I don't know much, but I seem to know how to P.O. a woman so learn from my mistakes.

Your out Wes. Now she's using a different color because she can.
I'm not standing my ground because of that.
I'm standing my ground because I'm right and he's a doofus.
FWIW, he always brags about being victorious after an argument... but when I harped on him for eating my starburst, he came home the next day with a 41 ounce bag.
Being in small town political arenas for most of my life, I learned a long time ago to pick and choose which battles were not worth fighting - Wes, focus on the blue toothbrush and let it go . . . I repeat, as Tony said to Apollo in Rocky II, LET IT GO MAN!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
When I lived with a girlfriend a few years back we had the same thing, blue-pink toothbrushes. For all I'm concerned its a must within a relationship if you're living together. Wes wins this one and I'm a redhead so ill tend to agree with the red-head for that simple sake, but Wes is correct.
Thread is spinning violently out of control.
This is not what I expected, nor what I demanded.
Sorry, you lose dude.....
I will start mass-deleting here in a minute.
Y'all think I'm playin...
Men use blue toothbrushes. Women uses pink toothbrushes. Period. Dot. End of sentence. End of paragraph. End of story.
If I were president, those would be the only two colors for toothbrushes in this country.
Just write your name on it with a black magic marker or label gun. Easy fix....
I have sympathy for gay and lesbian couples in your toothbrush world.
Just let her have the green one for a few days then "accidentally" use the green. If she is like my wife it will go straight in the trash and problem solved.
if you keep raising hell about it your toothbrush will be easy to find..... it'll be the one shoved up your a$$...
I would paint the illegal tooth brushes pink....gotta have continuity in the universe.
IMO, this is about MUCH more than a simple tooth brush...if you let up for "a tooth brush", what's next? Personally I don't want to live in that world of un-freedomness. I live in AMERICA. This IS AMERICA, if you want tooth brush freedom go to Cuba.
Real men have Orange toothbrushes!!
I have been on this planet for more than a half century, and this is the first time I have ever heard this outlandish blue toothbrush theory.
I completely agree with ADunc.
My experience is that anyone who cannot remember the look, color or feel of his own toothbrush must be a doofus. I have never once grabbed nor attempted to use anyone else's toothbrush, nor will I ever. Toothbrush identification has never been a problem, and I've used many colors and styles.
My only domestic toothbrush-related strife has occurred when the missus, unable to locate her own, has used mine.
Easy fix - separate sinks. It has prevented many morning fights.
You know what's an even easier fix?
Buying only blue or pink toothbrushes.
My experience is ... you're out of your element.
