Day And Reason # 76...

Smile... for the experience is near...!

Smile in front of the mirror first, though...
Because we never have enough time 
to take proper care of our pearly whites 
(and overall mouth)
Just imagine the countless hours of pure, 
unadulterated fun we will have devoted, 
throughout our lives, 
to taking proper care of our 
Once that is done, there is no reason not to smile! 
August 6th is National Fresh Breath Day
in several countries, in many time zones...

so... SMILE! 
It brightens the day - ours and everyone else's! 
It brings joy - inside and outwardly! 
There are more than 365 reasons to smile, too; 
there must be a 1000 reasons - or more, actually!
Just do it: SMILE!

But you have to be prepared to smile, first... 

No mouthwash allowed: as all of them contain alcohol 
which makes the mouth dry, 
and an ideal festering ground, then, 
for the bad breath bacteria...

Mass-marketing's Fresh Breath Mints 
are also to be proscribed:
as the sugar contained in those things 
actually helps anaerobic bacteria 
to thrive and flourish in your mouth

Lots and lots of water instead: 
as it will help replenish 
a naturally oxygen-rich saliva 
that will in turn assist in killing 
all anaerobic bad breath bacteria, 
even the sulfur-producing variety
that thrives on sugar...

Finally, you've heard it plenty of times 
at the dentist's office 
and on the oral hygienist's chair: 
floss daily, as it combats plaque, 
the premiere breeding ground 
for bad breath bacteria - 
and bacteria, period! 

You may even want to do like Ali Wentworth 
and have your tongue scraped - finally!
