Magic Shake-Ball

When I picked my son up from daycare today there was a notice in his mail pocket about a new Massachusetts law requiring centers to give parents the option of having their kids brush their teeth there after eating. The whole thing is a logistical and hygienic nightmare what with the glove-wearing and weekly brush replacements.

You can opt out of it if you want to, but that's a big ol' trap if you ask me. If I opt out, then I'm admitting that I'm a dental slacker. What should I do, Magic Shake-Ball?


"Assemble all the poor men of your sort;
Draw them to Tiber banks, and weep your tears
Into the channel, till the lowest stream
Do kiss the most exalted shores of all."
--Julius Caesar (1.1.57-60)

Ewww. Communal bodily fluids and swollen channels kissing shores? I'm opting out.
