The sad Valentine’s Day story about Jenna

This is Jenna.  She’s really excited because it’s her favorite holiday, Valentine’s Day.

Jenna didn’t want to be falling asleep early on her big romantic date night with her hubby, not after she’d waited 3 months to have a sitter.

So she took a nap earlier in the day.  Only she slept too long and had to rush getting dressed and ready to go out.

In her rush, Jenna forgot one very important part of her getting ready routine. She didn’t remember to brush her teeth.

OR rinse with Listerine.

Oh yes, it’s sad, but it’s so true.  Jenna went on a hot date with her hubby with her toe curling, eyes watering dragon breath.

Not many Valentine Smoochies for Jenna this year.

  • This is the best Listerine post I have seen and I have seen alot this past week. Poor Jenna!

  • Love your ‘story’ of a sad Valentine’s Day because of missed oral hygiene! I’m sad because my favorite Listerine vanilla mint is no longer made and I’m on my last stocked up bottle of it. That makes me a sad panda indeed.

  • This is adorable. Valentine’s Day is definitely not the day to forget to brush your teeth.

  • Oh my gosh haha, I HATE that feeling before brushing my teeth. I would have had to make a pit stop at the store to buy some mouth wash!

  • Ok that’s a funny story but makes a good point. I’ll make sure to stock up on Listerine Arctic Mist. LOL

  • HA!! funny (and true) I actually use Arctic mint Listerine and LOVE it because I have a small travel bottle in my purse to use after I eat 🙂

  • Brett, you crack me up!!!!

  • Hahahahha, this is so funny, yet so true!!!

  • Pop a mint and pucker up!! Time to learn from Jenna’s mistake! lol

  • ohhh you made me smile! that is a funny story! 🙂 Very creative!

  • This was a really fun story! And yes, better brush your teeth and floss if you want any kisses 😉

  • Oh that is too funny! I am using Listerine so I should be able to get some smooches.
