Ah, Sundays. Usually they mean rising before the sun so we can get to church by 7AM for worship team practice. Then, after a full morning of worship and teaching and fellowship, we come home to relax.
Part of the relaxing involves the newspaper. Mulletman and I do not get the paper, but the folks do. So they read it and then pass it on to us. My usual habit is to skim all the articles, read the comics (Zits is my favorite), glance through the sale ads, cut out coupns and then settle in for a long afternoon of doing the cryptogram and the crossword puzzle. On the bottom of the crossword puzzle is always a little teaser that says "Average solve time: 63 minutes".
The puzzle generally takes me about 3 hours. Apparently, if they didn't figure me into the average, the solve time would be 10 minutes.
But that's not what I want to write about today, oh no, oh no. I want to talk about this ad for Charmin toilet tissue I came across while cutting my coupons:
OK. Somebody want 'splain that to me? Because I don't quite get the point. I have 4 children and I've done day care and babysitting for many others. I've also been a housekeeper and a janitor. Even when using the very cheapest-of-cheap toilet papers I have NEVER had to vacuum someone's butt.
So why did they choose that image? And how is that supposed to motivate me to buy Charmin?
I'm just askin'!
