There's nothing more sad than throwing away your ex-lover's toothbrush.
Lotions, towels, shampoo: all of these things can be put away and used in future, perhaps by a new lover whose compatibility will be greater.
A toothbrush is uniquely individual. Throwing that away is a gesture of finality. That she'll never be here again. That you'll never again sleep spooned, that you'll never awaken with smiles and kisses and tenderness.
