    Default Can't leave my brush alone

    I'm having my brush in my hands when I watch TV, or next to me right now When watching TV, I stroke the bristles gently. Is this something that can damage the brush, or is it safe?

    Yes, this is normal behaviour for me

    Does your brush respond to the stroking?

    "Stroking the shaving brush". That's a euphemism that I have not heard before. I like it.

    It's completely safe, and your brush will be all right. A perfectly sensible way of dealing with the long Norwegian winter. If it continues when the sun returns, however, it might be wise to seek help.

    Well, I'm a single 18 year old boy.. And, actually, I've gotten a few remarks on my bone... ehrm.. brush. People seem to find it similar in shape to a schlong. Whether or not me stroking it is disturbing, is up for debate.

    Nothing better than the cat on the lap and my brush in my hands................

    as long as the brush doesn't leave a tip under your pillow I say the behavior is fine.

    Default Stroking the Brush.

    Its possibly cheaper then a cat and you don't have to feed it or clean out the cat litter. (You can't count the soap your have to buy!)

    I was about to suggest you get a cat, but since you already have one, I'm not sure if there's anything that can help you. Good luck with your, uh, habit (?).

    Indeed

    @Andrew98: I sat here last night, and I felt bad not having the brush within sight range. I felt in my stomach. It's just something with the way it looks that intrigues me

    I gotta admit, I was a little bit like that for the first day that I got my chubby 2 two-band. I kept taking it out and looking at it.

    There is probably a club or a group out there for people with similar infatuations.

    When my Rooney came in the mail, I couldn't stop going into the bathroom and moving it between the stand and its base.

    In all seriousness, a new brush, especially a custom one, is a great thing. It's a little work of functional art.
