The Mystery of the Wet Toothbrush



I sure could use Nancy Drew right about now. It started about a week ago when I went into the bathroom after lunch to brush my teeth and found my toothbrush wet. I was surprised by this and thought it must be more humid than I suspected since my toothbrush is usually dry by lunch time after I have used it in the morning.

A few days ago I again found a wet toothbrush when I went to brush my teeth before going to bed. I asked my husband if he was accidentally using my toothbrush but he said no.

Imagine my feeling of slight irritation when I went to brush my teeth after lunch the next day and found my toothbrush wet. My husband was washing the lunch dishes in the kitchen and I stuck my head out the bathroom door, held my toothbrush up, and asked him who's toothbrush was I holding. He said it was mine. I then told him it was wet again while his was dry and asked if he had used it. He said no and added that maybe I wasn't shaking the water off it after I rinsed it and put it back in the toothbrush holder. I admitted that this was true and made sure that I shook the water off before putting it away from that moment on.

Saturday I again went to brush my teeth after lunch and found my toothbrush wet and my husband's toothbrush dry. I went into the living room and asked him if he had just brushed his teeth. He said yes. I then told him my toothbrush was wet and his was dry so he must have used mine. He went into the bathroom to feel his toothbrush and after finding it slightly damp said he could not understand it as he knew he had used his own toothbrush.

Now, there are three souls living in this house and if my husband is not using my toothbrush then our dog Duke is the only other possible suspect. But, since Duke does not have opposable thumbs and is not tall enough to reach the toothbrush holder, it is unlikely that he is the culprit. So, who is using my toothbrush?

Nancy, are you reading this? I need your help.
