Psh, silly Thelis. That my friend is my dental floss holder (the jumbo edition).
I have different sized floss for different meals...thin strings for light things such as toast, or yogurt. Medium strings for chicken, fish and breads and the heavy strings for corn on the cob, gummy candy and bbq pork. The reason I'm holding it is to clean it, I have to clean off the food particles/chunks twice a week with a pick like object. The pegs on the end adjust the tension to get those hard to reach bits of food.
I bought the On-The-Go Strap (retail $19.95 plus S&H) so I can take it with me when I go out to eat.
