I don't really like watching TV commercials, unless, of course, they're Got Milk, or the Ocean Spray Cranberry commercials that I mentioned here, but I love to look at the ads in magazines. Not just the regular run-of-the-mill ads, but the beautiful, or clever, or pleasing to the eye ads.
An ad for dressbarn recently caught my eye. This is how it read:
The best things in life contain chocolate. I believe I'm always right (except when I'm wrong). The closer I get to it, the more I believe that forty is the new thirty. I believe in my unalienable right to the perfect pair of jeans. I believe if you really want to know how you look, don't ask your mother, your sister or your best friend. Ask your 4 year old.
Well said. I think I'll go shop there to look for that perfect pair of jeans. Then I'll ask my 4 year old how I look, and he'll tell me I'm beautiful, like he does every day. Then he'll poke my tummy and say, "Squishy".
