My new $1,409.86 Philips Sonicare toothbrush

Until I brought home my new Philips Sonicare toothbrush today and spotted the 21" fold-out brochure in the package, I did not realize where I had gone wrong. And how little I understood of myself and my needs.

The flier read, "[You] should be a morning person." And they sell to things for that! Philips Wake-up Light ($169.99) and Docking Alarm Clock ($49.99).

And "Because looking good is feeling good," Arcitec Razor ($179.99), Bodygroom Groomer ($49.99) and Stubble Trimmer ($39.99).

And "Because great music is your soundtrack for life," I need GoGear ($99.99) and Headphones ($9.99).

And "Because you spend more time at the office than anywhere else [not]," I need an Office Docking Station ($139.99), and a goLITE BLU Light Therapy Device ($199.99).

And "Because your music should be as mobile as you are," I need more Headphones ($9.99) and an Action Jacket with Rotating Belt Clip for music player ($29.99).

But "Because sometimes you want to connect with the world form the comfort of your home," there's the Shelf System ($129.99), Prestigo Remote ($199.99), and a DECT Phone ($99.99).

All in, having finally switched from manual to electric toothbrushing with my new Sonicare Essence, I realize I now need more products "4life," as the copy reads.

This will cost me a mere: $1,409.86, plus tax.
