Tooth Twine

via the EQ

“I soon realized I had made no mistake in my choice of a wife. I was helping her pack an overnight bag one afternoon when she said, ‘Put in some tooth twine.’ I knew then that a girl who called dental floss tooth twine was the girl for me.”

—E. B. White, April 8, 1980 (via The Way Life Should Be: The House of E. B. White | Writers’ Houses)
