Etymology: Like "toe jam," but between teeth.

My sentence is actually true. If I floss, sometimes it gets stuck between the teeth, and I have to wait a few days for my saliva to eat it away. In other news, it only takes a few days for saliva to significantly dissolve a piece of dental floss. - ErWenn, 2007-05-24: 14:01:00

Thanks for sharing. I thought people like you were just using the string to remind them of something. :-) - purpleartichokes, 2007-05-24: 15:52:00

It's there to remind us not to floss anymore. Or to get our wisdom teeth removed. - ErWenn, 2007-05-24: 20:13:00
