It's a damn big planet

It took us 24 hours to get from Maine to Bali. We flew business class where the seats flatten into beds, they feed you on china and wine isn't a small bottle with a plastic cup dangling over the top. Also, they begin the flight by giving you these cute little pouches filled with socks, eye shades and tiny tubes of toiletries. The shades are drawn,  a meal arrives, people sleep, other meals arrive and more sleeping—unless you are me...
Loosing all track of time as we crossed time zones got me thinking about when was brushing before bed and when was brushing in the morning. So to avoid any chance of morning breathe no matter where we were over the planet I took my tiny toothbrush and tiny tube of paste and brushed my way around the world. I used the whole tiny tube.

That about says it! Sounds like the way to travel, though! I'm always in coach, but for a trip that long, thank goodness you had a way to relax! Glad to hear you're minty clean! Love the drawing!

A sign of Sanity, clean teeth - good gir!! I can only imagine the shock to the system with that time change, probably exactly 12 hours ahead of New England??
