Escape Pod 115: Conversations With And About My Toothbrush By Derek Zumsteg.

Read by Jared Axelrod (of The Department of Public Words).
"I read an interesting forum post last night,? my electric toothbrush told me over its low burr."

"Thiff ouff thew be thood," I said through my mouth of foam.

“It was!? he replied. “Using readily available components, Monkeymonkey turned his Intellibrush into a milk frother."

I spit into the sink and set my toothbrush in its white ceramic charger. "What would I do with a milk frother?"

"Make cappucinos," my toothbrush said, with a hint of resignation, as I rinsed and spit again.

"I don’t drink cappucinos," I said.

"You could start!"
