    My daughter twelve year old friend  said those words to her this morning, my daughter told me Mommy how do I reply to a question like that without  being nasty to her. How does a person forget to brush his or her teeth before leaving the house?

    To avoid awkwardness, run away screaming.

    Perhaps it is more polite to ignore such a thing, because not all people are as fortunate to have such amentities provided for them. There are some that may not have toothpaste... etc. This is a great way to teach charity and humility in small children; by showing what others may not have.

    I would open my purse and offer them an Altoid mint.

    Being a dental hygiene student, I might explain to them, nicely, the benefits of not missing a brushing.  I really can't help myself.

    Really, everyone is telling me that they've never left the house without brushing their teeth? I'm not saying it happens a lot, or even a often but there have been a few mornings in my life when this I have unfortunately ran out of time. But I don't typically share this information with others. If someone mentions it to me, then kindly offer some gum.

    I would reply, "Make sure you never forget again." People do forget and it is good to answer in a nicely manner. Maybe he was in a hurry.

    Without making a person feel awkward tell a little 'white lie' and say I did that once it happens. It won`t solve the problem but at least they won`t feel so bad about it.

    I wouldn't say anything.  I would however be thinking "gross".
