Since I forgot to bring my toothpaste from Nigeria, I had to get to the supermarket earlier today to buy one. After about an hour of loitering around the aisle, pretending to know where to find what I was looking for, I finally summoned the courage to ask the cashier who promptly referred me to the right aisle. And there they were, hundreds of different brands of toothpaste. I was looking for only three names: Close-up, Macleans, or Colgate. I didn’t care for any of the others.

And as I bent down to look closer, there it was: Colgate.

toothpasteNo, I mean, there they were:

Colgate Total Whitening
Colgate Total Advanced Whitening
Colgate Total Advanced Fresh
Colgate Total Advanced Clean
Colgate Whitening Oxygen Bubbles
Colgate Total Mint Stripe
Colgate MaxFresh with Mouthwash Beads
Colgate MaxFresh with Mini Breath Strips
Colgate Cavity protection
Colgate Whitening Paste


I went for Close-up instead.
Luckily, there was only one kind: CLOSE-UP Freshening Red Gel.

I didn’t know what the “Freshening Red Gel” stood for, but it didn’t matter anymore.
