Checking out The Tomplum's latest tips, and then started browsing the other vids on there. Ever noticed the "check for bad breath" clip that often comes up at the top of the list? Obviously an advert, so I never clicked on it. Until now. No surprise, it's for a tongue scraper/brushy thing. So's getting ready for bed that night, I thought I'd give my tongue a good brushing chust to see (no, I wasn't 'on a promise' or anything, in fact I was completely alone that evening as t'wife was away and kids were at Nan's) And therein lay the problem. I'd had 'tea' at Nan's earlier, and her plates of curry are full to overflowing, and so, as it turned out, was I. Anyways, I know all about the 'puke reflex' at the back of the tongue (I ain't stupid) so took care not to go anywhere near there with my tooth brush. My personal p-r, however, seems to have been doing the ageing thing and it now seems to cover just about all my tongue. I teased the toothbrush towards the middle of my tongue and tried a delicate flick further backwards, and immediately felt the nausea rise within me. Retreat. Retreat. Phew, that was close oneeeeeeeeooooouuuuccchhhh. Basin turned bright reddy orange. What in god's name do they put in these curries? It looked - literally - as though I'd puked my guts up. My breath was not improved.
