I love bribery.

After I whined about not wanting to floss my teeth, but wanting to make it a whole week of flossing every day, I decided to stop being lame and just do it.  And I timed it.  Turns out that I spend at least 200% more time whining about it and putting it off than actually doing it.  It took me 2 minutes and 40 seconds to floss.  And I kept the stopwatch going for my whole "getting ready for bed" routine that I constantly blow off because I'm lazy... the entire thing took under 10 minutes.  That was flossing, taking out my contacts, washing my face and putting on all my high maintenance night creams (I really am so prepared for being an old cat lady), brushing my teeth, and rinsing for 30 seconds with mouthwash.  

Moral of the story?  Quit whining and be happy.
