WTF Flashback: What were we thinking?

I was just brushing my teeth and the taste of minty freshness caused a memory to surge up from where memories hide when we don’t need them. A memory of hot summer nights, sneaking from our tent to the bathroom cabin to retrieve our tubes of toothpaste to…eat it, essentially. We never ate much – it wasn’t a meal or anything, but we made no pretense of smearing it on our teeth. I cannot for the life of me recall any details about why we were convinced this was a thing to do, except perhaps that adults told us not to so floride wouldn’t kill us. Was there a reason? Do kids still do this? WTF?
