Nick has a new job filling toothpaste tubes. I spent many years developing oral products (such as Dentyl active mouthwash) and perhaps this served as the inspiration for the story. Thank you Irena Brodeski for the lovely illustrations.

Nick was in a very good mood when he arrived home one sunny afternoon. He had lots of teeth and was grinning from ear to ear.
Nick started to wander around the house. How was he ever going to get the toothpaste into such a little hole? He went to the bathroom and squeezed the paste out of one tube. He then tried to push it back in. But no matter how hard he tried, the toothpaste stayed outside.
He tried a spoon. He tried a straw. He tried blowing. He tried pushing and pulling. But no matter how hard he tried, the toothpaste stayed outside. “I know what I must do” he thought. “I must practice first with bigger holes.” He went to the store and bought ten tubes of toothpaste.
He bought more and more tubes of toothpaste and filled all the sinks, the chimney, and all the cups in the house. Wherever there was a hole to fill, Nick filled it.
