I was up at 3am last night – er, this morning I mean. Sitting up in the cold trying to rock the small boy to sleep I decided to flick on the TV to distract us both and what do you know, the telly was talking to me. Yes, to ME!
First it told me how my weird problem (number 3) was not so weird after all (which I already knew since so many of you commented that I was not alone) and not only that but if I bought ‘proactve solution’ it would fix it! No more pimples – just wrinkles. For only two easy payments of $29.99. Plus! If I order online I will get this free gift, and this one and that one too! Now how did the TV know that I have a huge pimple on the end my nose right now and that I was in desperate need of a ‘life long solution’ to my problem??
After the telly had convinced me to part with my hard earned cash to beat my zits, as I sat there with the small but heavy child in my arms with my back crying out for some relief, then it told me that if I bought Gunner Smith’s Core Strength Work Out that it would solve my other pressing problem. My sore back and total lack of stomach muscles and core strength (cause you know being pregnant for 42 weeks can do that to a girl) would be fixed for only $49.99 – and they’d throw in the fitball and a pump totally free! How generous!
Just as I was sitting there wondering if the small child would go to sleep quicker on my lap in front of the computer while I ordered these wonder products the telly spoke to me again. Yes, straight to me. It told me to look at my floors, and I did and I saw fluff and dust and a few crumbs that I had missed when I swept with my ‘old fashioned broom’ earlier in the night ‘especially in those hard to reach corners and under furniture’. How did the telly know that my floors were in desperate need of help? How did it know that not only did I need zit cream, and a work out video but that I also need a swivel sweeper??
By that stage it was after 4am, the small child had finally dozed off. I was too freaked out that the telly had spoken directly to me to go and order any of the things it told me to so we just went back to bed. Interestingly in the stark light of day I am not sure these products seem so good any more. Can anyone recommend them? Anyone that is, who isn’t a B grade celebrity looking for some extra cash?
