Today I took a drive down to Mankato to pick up my cousin who is attending Minnesota State. The dear is doing some babysitting for me over the weekend and needed a ride as she does not have a car on campus. It’s about an hour and a half drive, not long enough to make stops, but without stops, why would anyone go on road trips of any length whatsoever?
On my way down I found a gas station selling gas at about 24 cents cheaper than I had seen anywhere else in the past week, so I stopped to top off my tank. As I was paying I noticed there was a new product on the shelf and this new product was calling out to me.
It’s a toothbrush, with crusty old toothpaste already in the bristles. Suggested uses: before date, traveling, after meals, after cocktails, school, camp. If you are going to “before date” someone, don’t you think you would have thought about your teeth already? Do you really need to stop by the gas station and get a ready brush? And if you did, why would you not buy the 99 cent toothbrush and the 99 cent toothpaste that you can re-use as opposed to this 2.99 invention? But I bought it anyhow. I never know when I might randomly have cocktails and then need to make out. I hope someday in the near future there will be a terrific commercial on TV for this product.
