I THINK I’VE BEEN SNOOKERED

That’s the term my aunt used to say when the wool had been pulled over her eyes.  I think that’s happened to me.  I don’t know the exact time and it’s not just one place where it’s happened.  Evidently, it’s been a gradual thing.  It dawned on me when I was looking at a pricy dress that had a zipper on the outside of the dress that something was wrong.  The dress looked unfinished.  It looked like something my high school home economics class teacher would have tossed back in my face and told me to rip it out and start over.  I then started noticing other clothing with seams on the outside.  And hems that were just serged or worse, just chopped off.  Another big eye opener was reading an article that told me I need to put butter in my coffee so I can get the good fats in my diet.  Of course, it has to be the expensive European butter—-Land O Lakes just won’t do.  Ummm, let me think……..what else?  Well, how about all those new teeth that we’re seeing?  My theory is the dental industry has discovered we are brushing and flossing so well that we are putting them out of business SO they came up with a new campaign to make us think we all need super-nova white teeth that you need sunglasses when you look at the person.  It always reminds me of that Huey Lewis song except I say,” your teeth are so bright, I gotta wear shades”.

And just to show you I’m not picking on everyone but me, just look at my new glasses.  This year the trend is big, black frames.  I fell for it hook, line and sinker — even tho I look like Atom Ant.  And whoever was able to making us believe that a chair with seven different fabric patches is attractive should get the Nobel prize.  Come on, people!  They just had to do something with all those scraps so they throw them on last year’s swivel rocker and convince you it’s the must have piece for your living room.  In marketing classes, we used to call that byproducts.  It just goes on and on and on —  I think the term is “trends”………..I’ve just decided that stands for “To Remind Everyone No Deniro, Stupid”.
