Older people can remain active and thoughtful and have the potential to grow. There are many role models. Mistakes happen, often hilarious. Join me on an ageing trip to places and moments.

Did I mean a denture bath?

  Posted by David Walker


How many of us own traditional tooth mugs? Plastic, about the size of a cream slice, but semi-round with a straight edge. And creased, presumably a fashion statement. It's certainly a design issue - dirt, grease, and whatever else accumulates in impossible-to-clean crevices. Inside can be similar, particularly if you haven't washed it out for a while. So the top is secured by a plastic hinge, part of the overall structure and vulnerable. I think mine lasted quite a long time before becoming permanently detached.
  I needed a new one. Not available except in chemists. I visited my local in Scarborough. 
  "Do you have a tooth mug?"
  "No."
  "Oh, okay then," and I turned towards the door.
  I'd was nearly out on the street when the assistant called out, "Did you mean a denture bath?"
