Minty White:
Fuck I hated my toothpaste. 

Actually it was HIS toothpaste. 

He’d left it here. 

And I didn’t believe in wasting anything so I was using the last of it. 

Okay, fine, maybe it was because I still wasn’t over him. Well not HIM, but the IDEA of him; the idea of US. 

The thing was though, it left a bitter aftertaste in my mouth. The toothpaste I mean, not him! 

Actually the more I thought about it, the more I realised that was probably why I hated the toothpaste. It reminded me of the bitter aftertaste of our relationship. Why was I still holding onto something that tastes like shit?! 
I looked at the tube, said, “Good fucking riddance!” and threw it in my bin. 

I wanted my minty white toothpaste back; that was more like me. It was fresh, clean, bright and made you feel sparkly and good about yourself. 

His toothpaste was just like him: dull, boring and indeed, bitter, just like his attitude to life and love. 

Nobody wanted that kind of toothpaste. 

Nobody wanted that kind of man either.
