Advertisers Beware

Okay, so I've become quite the analytical commercial watcher lately. Mainly because with the shows I watch, it seems as though I'm missing the mark a bit on their target audience. Denture paste, depends, and bifocals aren't exactly of any particular interest to me. But it's comforting to know that's who they think is watching the show... an 80 year old woman. Watch out world, here I come!

So on that note, here's to commercials that I love. (to mock.)

Is it wrong that our town has all 3 of the best things they listed?! We host the county fair, a couple parades, and our windmills inspire tourists to stop here. Wow, what a town?!

Too bad I've never heard of the band, care to hear them, or care about soaps. Whoopee, I'm SO not entering that contest (even though I know we have it in the bag).

Marriage Prerequisite

(Insert a spoon, a baby bottle, and a plate and you have our dishwasher...never mind that ours is white and about 17.85 years older than this brand new one.)

One of the things I wish I had known before I had gotten married was how my husband-to-be loaded the dishwasher.

I kid you not.

I pride myself in being an ultimate packer so as not to leave any dishes remaining on the counter (well, when I actually make it into the kitchen). I put some in, take some out, rearrange, and spend entirely too much time figuring out the best dynamics so the dishes fit well, utilize the space, and will still get clean. Ooooo, it is a science I tell ya.

But when it's not me who does the dishes I'll find cups spaced out, maybe a bowl thrown in here and there, or a baby bottle laying around. No rhyme or reason to the degree of difficulty and time it should take to property load. I mean, C'MON!

What really grates my cheese is when I open the dishwasher and find that we basically just steam cleaned all of the little pegs inside, oh, and 3 dishes.

BUT, then again, the amount of times I actually do the dishes is so few and far between that I should just put those 3 clean spoons away and smile.

Oh, and if you buy your detergent from Costco, do NOT buy their "green" liquid detergent. I scrubbed our dishes and they still ended up dirty after they came out of a cycle. Yikes. When I returned it and told the lady it didn't even polish them, she just laughed. Basically every bottle they sold was returned.

So moral of the story, I'll just continue my run of staying out of the kitchen (for cleaning AND cooking) and put a smile on my face as I take a knife to our granulated detergent that is now one large chunk (just so I can say I helped a little).
