Lesson For Life #47

Never taste battery acid. It has a bad taste and a worse aftertaste.

I was going to brush my teeth after taking a shower tonight. I picked up the electric toothbrush and turned it on. Nothing happened. I twisted the head off to make sure it wasn't gunk buildup between the mechanism and the brush again. Nope. Not it. Must be a dead battery. The instructions on the bottom said, "Twist while pulling to remove cap." So, that's what I did. It wasn't working very well, because my hands were still slippery from the shower. So I got the genius idea to use my teeth. So, I'm twisting with my hands and pulling with my teeth until suddenly, POP! the cap comes off and one of the batteries falls into my mouth. It had apparently been leaking slightly and I tasted it. UGH! My brushed teeth are much MORE relief tonight than normal. I'm getting pliers next time.
