    1. Jimmy; mine is permanently on the scenic route, which is fine with me, straight lines are no fun.

    1. Grace; makes you think twice about swimming until you realise pools aren't filled with saliva. Just plain old water and chlorine.

  12. No wonder my mouth gets so dry at night. It's filling swimming pools while I sleep, most likely using my pillow as a sponge to transfer the saliva to the pool.

    1. Val; wring out your pillow in the morning, find out if that's true. It sounds kind of yucky. My mouth is dry at night because I take antihistmamines so I can breathe, there are a lot of night-blooming things around here that stuff me up.
