Yesterday I bought a tube of Colgate Total Advanced Fresh Gel Toothpaste in my local UK Waitrose grocery store. Normally I much prefer Tom's of Maine Wintermint flavor (no saccharin), but I can't get that here, and I seem to be allergic somehow to Tom's of Maine Cinnamon-Clove (as fabulous as it tastes) and Cinnamint (why is this?), which we picked up in Colorado at Christmas (because the store we looked there at didn't have wintermint either).
In any case, this Colgate tube here expresses itself in English, German, French, Spanish, Greek, Italian, and four other languages I'm not sure about (possibly Dutch, Swedish, Polish and Portuguese). It has marked on its side addresses in Belgium, the UK, Italy, Poland and Sweden, and telephone numbers for 15 countries, including Ireland, Luxembourg, Austria, Denmark and Finland.
I am overwhelmed by the international nature of my little tube of fresh-smelling stuff. Maybe if I use enough of it on my teeth and tongue, I will start to be fluent in more languages.
