My Latin class was awesome. All the classmates were cool people, and it was the last class for one of the school's busiest teachers. She told hilarious stories and we reacted in kind. So much fun.

I got off of work and because my wife seems a little down I went by to pick her up some flowers. 

Did it work? Don't get me wrong, it was a nice thing to do. I just don't understand what's with the women and flowers. If I am feelling down it doesn't help if someone buys me a beer.

It helped a little.  I just wanted her to know I appreciate her.

In English lessons I was always taught to use British English. American English was reviled by the teachers as a barbaric variant of proper, British English. We would get no points if we would use American words/spelling/etc.
And rightfully so. I hate how we Americans have so completely destroyed the language.

What are you talking about? American English is closer to the original anyways according to language scholars, and even if it wasn't what is destructive about not having a u in color?
I think he is complaining about colloquialisms.
Indeed. I also think that American literature is far inferior to British literature. Of course, this is a different subject entirely.

What colloquialisms?

The world wants speak American. Englandan was not spoken well by an Englishman, save a few. Englandan was always finest in the mouths and on the pens of those who hated the country which lent its name to the words they spoke and wrote.

So it appears that all of my half-cousins from my father's half sister absolutely despise me and my family because our grandpa left their grandma for my grandma and they think that he's the perfect grandpa who spoils us rotten all the while ignoring them. That's bogus. The man is the most selfish, lazy detached guy in the world who forgets our names half the time.

I have never been so offended in my life. One of my extended friends is having a huge party for her 18th birthday next month and I wasn't invited even though she invited my two closest friends Sad This is horrible. This would have been my first ever party. I thought that I would finally get to make a fool out of myself and have fun indulging in youthful shenanigans like the youth in Cyrillic's country. But alas, now I'll be stuck at home being boring  Cry

No worries, dr. prof. Cyrillic, PhD in Partyology has arrived to help you out.

You might not have expected it, but I'm an expert in and veteran of wild parties. Like the Homeric Proteus I shapeshift to become all kinds of persons. Now, I know what you should do, having been in that situation once or twice and seeing many others who were in the same situation. You should call those friends and ask to meet up that night and you should go to the party together. You should take a bottle of vodka (optional) with you. Now when you're in front of the door with your friends and she sees the vodka she'll either say nothing or that she's happy that you're here. Even if she wouldn't want you she can't refuse you with those two friends there.

Party crashing is an ancient and venerable tradition. On the Symposium of Agathon where Socrates was present even the illustrous and famous general Alcibiades party crashed, and he was drunk. You shouldn't be too drunk when you arrive so that's fine.

I'd be disappointed if you wouldn't follow my advice. Go for it, young man  angel

You know what? I'm going to listen to Cyrillic and crash that party no matter what. I'm not missing out on the only opportunity I've ever had to attend a High-School party and learn how to have fun. What type of sinful temptations should I expect to encounter so I could prepare to turn them down?

Do it.  If nothing else, you will have a great story.

If you are going to a party, I think the whole point to to wallow in the temptations. j/k

You know what? I'm going to listen to Cyrillic and crash that party no matter what. I'm not missing out on the only opportunity I've ever had to attend a High-School party and learn how to have fun. What type of sinful temptations should I expect to encounter so I could prepare to turn them down?

I don't know why, but when I read this and your first post about the party, this scene immediately comes to mind:

Someone called me a foolish vassal, can someone come up with a witty retort for me? Thanks.

What about petty knave?
Ok he meant to say foolish varlot.

You got something for that now?

Clearly the proper response to this insult is to call him a whoreson malt-horse drudge. (from Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare)
I would thank him sincerely and walk away leaving him confused.

A friend told me this would be a lonely journey. He was right. But: I was prepared for it too.
The thing is: I am never alone and that is a comfort. The comfort.

So could I get at least a little bit of alcohol, drunk girls flashing and late night vandalism of private property and dismiss it as the "sins of my youth" or do I have to resist it altogether?

If that's the type of question you're going to ask, I find it funny that you'd limit yourself to "a little bit of alcohol" and "flashing".   

"Sins of one's youth"...

Try not to barf all over the place. Vandalism and orgies are a no-no.

So I started using this Colgate Optic White toothpaste and toothbrush, and my lower gums are inflamed from it. Must be that hydrogen peroxide.

I think I'm going to stop using it. And that 360 brush is pretty harsh too.

I strongly recommend not using most "whitening" toothpastes. Everyone can google. Achonos if you need more convincing, I'll tell you about it.

Can I just use basic Colgate or Crest?

Ain't it all just the same thing in a different tube?

These bristles are some of the stiffest I have ever used. It's really aggravating my lower gums, I think. Ok yeah I'm a little harsh I guess...

I am not familiar with the brush. Soft is better if only cause to many people brush to hard.

Next topic of discussion: oral hygiene.

If only I had practiced what I preached! Can't wait.

Is brushing 3 times a day overbrushing?

What's your take on floss?

What's your take on floss?

Floss > brushing. To my dismay. Since I really didn't do much of either, but the flossing got me in the end.

In short, floss properly twice a day. Brush when you feel like it, but remember why you are brushing, it is a broader form of flossing really. Its to remove debris, but more importantly introduce oxygen into the gum line. Flossing gets most of this done. Once you understand you are really brush where your teeth meet each other and the gums, it should change how you brush.

Brushing feels better but not as effective. If I had flossed once a day, I wouldn't be dealing with what I am now. Not brushing hardly ever till I was an adult did almost nothing.

Brushing should be done with almost no force applied expect to make contact with the teeth and gums. And then while attempting the impossible feat of trying to keep the tips of the bristles in place you move the brush back and forth. This action removes debris and gets into the gum line. Wildly brushing does almost nothing.

Electronic brushes if they are more effective are only so because you can just barely touch them to your teeth and then they take care of the rest.

Back and forth, reset the head on the next part of the mouth, do it again.

I should probably get an electronic brush, as even I go a little too hard, and I barely apply any pressure.

One piece of sage brushing advice if you don't do it already:

When doing you lower teeth in the front, pull your lip far down. People get a lot of gum irritation at the dentist office in this area, because when they brush an involuntary muscle contraction happen which effectively moves the gum line up. Pulling the lip down mitigates this and you are able to more effectively condition the gums in that area.

From the halls of consumer research to you.
