A few days ago I was reminded while reading blogs about Burger King wrappers and their inspired bits of wisdom... I miss those, I obviously need to take up the eating of fries again because I miss their insight - what am I left with?
I'll tell you - I'm left with the cheesy wisdom of Ivory soap. Bleary eyed as I was this morning I noticed that the wrappers were individually printed with quotes... the one I stuck in the kids' bathroom said some mumbo jumbo about true beauty... did I buy into it, heck no - I still felt the need to shower and try to cover those bags under my eyes! The one I popped into my own shower said "The road to a friends' house is never long and the directions are easy" - I was doubting this one immediately since my in-laws drove about 4 hours to get here (even though ManOfTheHouse makes that same drive in 3... he's a little lead footed maybe?) and my parents drove about 9 hours to get here... (not counting the hours of stopping and sleeping obviously).
So, no, it's not Shakespeare - and frankly, I could probably use a big, cold, icy beverage from BK right now to open my eyes - but I'll settle for the Ivory... because beggars can't be choosers.
But I'll tell you what, I'm buying Lever 2000 next time, because wisdom doesn't really make up for not cleaning ALL of my 2000 body parts!
