Summer time, and it’s getting hot. So hot, I had to buy this gum:
Would you look at this gum in its cute, little box with such a catchy phrase? I fell for it, completely. Truth be told, psst…I’m a marketer’s wet dream. I paid $1.99 for this little box containing eight pieces of Chiclets-sized gum.
When my son tried a piece, he said, “Crappy Gum for your happy life.” Ha! Pretty good, I thought.
I actually bought it knowing that the company that makes this product, Blue Q, is an equal-opportunity employer and provides jobs for the disabled. Plus, they have products that are all about Cat Butts. What’s not to love? There, I just did a bunch of free advertising for a company. A marketer’s wet dream, as I said.
The truth is I’m completely unfocused these days getting lost in the blog fog, wandering around in my PJs, consuming nothing but frosted flakes and beer. All my hard superwomen boot camp workouts for naught!
Plus, my sister is visiting, I need to return overdue library books, and finish up a story that remains unwritten. Not to mention, I’m talking about gum, which I don’t even chew, although I’m chewing a piece right now. What is it about this little box?
This is my cue to take a little break. Exit stage left…
Your blogs are so tempting, yes, you’re that good….I need to formally excuse myself from the blogosphere. I can’t stop reading you. I just put another piece of gum in my mouth. I’m feeling anxious.
I’m taking a blog vacay, as they say. I’m unplugging…
Don’t you forget about me. I will miss you, but I will be back. Stay cool.
