I called my friend yesterday. “Hi, Bob, it’s Dick. I have a weird question to ask you. Mary Ellen and I disagree on what most people do. When you are finished brushing your teeth, do you rinse and spit or just spit?”

“Geesh, Dick, I have never thought about that until now. I’ll call you back at the end of your column.”

Dick Wolfsie is a former Indianapolis TV personality.
