Give It A Rest
You’re out at a nice restaurant and have done your adultly duty of eating your veggies before cutting into that mouthwatering steak. Your date laughs, you laugh. It’s all a good time until you realize bits of your dinner are wedged between your teeth. Time to whip out that toothpick!
You might have noticed that some toothpicks have grooves at one end with the picker on the other. The notches are more than a style choice by the manufacturer. Snapping the toothpick at the lower indentation gives you handy a toothpick rest, allowing you to set it on the table without picking up extra germs in between fishing the spinach and steak out of your teeth.
