I was rushing around trying to get pick up all my toiletries to go to the airport. Usually Salt Lake City airport doesn’t have very large security lines and so I thought that it would be easy to make it in time.
As I was driving in order to get to the airport, I remembered that I had forgotten to pack toothpaste. There was a store right off of the highway so I decided to pull over and run in there.
I ran over to the aisle with all the toiletries and just grabbed the first toothpaste that I could find.
I stuffed it in my bag and got back in my car and headed to the airport. It wasn’t until I got to the hotel and opened up my bag that I realized that the toothpaste that I had grabbed was actually cinnamon toothpaste.
First of all I don’t know how in an aisle of literally 500 different types of toothpaste, I unluckily grabbed the one that was cinnamon.
Moreover – why in the world is there a cinnamon toothpaste? Is there someone that actually enjoys the taste of cinnamon while brushing their teeth?
I learned the important lesson in that it does pay to prepare in advance so you’re not in a hurry in making rash decisions like not being able to enjoy your favorite toothpaste.
