Nick’s New Job – Illustrated By Irena Brodeski

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.

“Did you get the job?” his wife Sylvia asked. “Yes, I did, I sure did”, he answered. “The Holy Molar Toothpaste Company offered me an amazing job. I am going to be in charge of filling the toothpaste tubes. I am so excited!”

That night, Nick was so excited that he could not sleep at all. He pictured himself wearing a brand new lab coat with his name sewn on the pocket. He would be in charge of getting just the right amount of paste into every toothpaste tube.

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.

At home, he practiced on one of his shoes. It was easy!!! He soon ran out of toothpaste. No problem. Back to the store. He bought a hundred tubes of toothpaste and filled all the shoes in the house. It wasn’t difficult at all!  There were so many holes to practice on!!

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.

On Monday Nick appeared at work early with a big smile on his face. 

“Can I start right now?”,  he asked. “I am ready. I have been practicing all weekend.”

“Oh, no” said the boss. Please come back in a month or so.” Nick was very sad. He wanted to know why.

“Someone bought thousands of toothpaste tubes over the weekend. We have none left!!!”

Nick eventually found another job that had nothing to do with toothpaste. 

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
