An entry into my new per­son­al dictionary…

Tooth­paste Syn­drome: When you get close to the end of your tooth­paste, you start grad­u­al­ly using less and less until there’s a mere smear of a micro­lay­er being used. Once a new tube is pur­chased you go back to squirt­ing it out onto your tooth­brush like there’s no tomorrow.

Can also be applied to petrol, sug­ar and Mon­i­ca Bel­luc­ci movies.
