...until my daughter asked is she could borrow some Chapstick...

...yes, it happened.  Deoderant flavored Chapstick.

I would bet there's a pile of millennials reading this thread that don't have a clue about what life is, when you start getting long in the tooth!

My wife uses toothpaste to polish her rings, jewelry. I use it to fill the holes left when she gives up hanging things in a particular spot on the wall. To hide holes her decorations get bigger over the years.

Scrape it off the sink for breath mints. 

We talk like this stuff is cheap!

BTW...Does this hat make my ears look big?? Confused



I was informed that a man's ears not only catch hair sliding of the noggin, but grow longer lobes with age. So break out the shears every five years, and trim the wattle as well.

Nah Timberwolf, that hat does not make your ears look big. 
On the other hand, your ears however make that hat look small.  Winkgrin

Quite a few people have, in the past, here and there, commented on the usefulness of toothpaste for fine polishing, so it certainly makes sense as a stropping paste.

But remember: floss your hand tools daily!

When I was a young ‘in, getting my buzz cut, backin the 1950’s, I thought my barber was the smartest guy on earth. Told me stuff that was verboten at home and convinced me to use Vitalis, to make the hairs at the front, stand up. Said the girls would love me.
