Worst. Toothbrush. EVER

I just got back from the grocery store, where I bought, among other things, a new toothbrush.

This is noteworthy because I bought a brand-new toothbrush on the morning that I left for Washington D.C., exactly three weeks ago. In just three weeks of normal use, it has become the worst-worn toothbrush I have ever seen. The bristles are scraggly and smashed. The blue bristles don't fade to indicate wear, they just mimic other toothbrushes. Even the rubber grip is starting to come apart.

It's an off-brand (generic from Target) toothbrush, which implies that, perhaps surprisingly, name-brandedness actually matters for toothbrushes!
