during our weekend shopping extravaganza, we made a pitstop at borders to find a book for the kid's book report. while she perused the "young adult" section, i found this:
i was fairly certain there wouldn't be much in there that i didn't already know (sugar is the devil, avoid alcohol, exercise is key), but as i flipped through the first few pages, these lines jumped out at me:
"Cigarettes are for losers. They are so 1989 and totally uncool. Not only do they screw up your body chemistry, but they also kill your taste buds. No wonder you eat shit and garbage. Smoking's out. Give it up."
"Coffee is for pussies. You should not need anything to wake up."
and my favorite (so far):
"Your junk food has a shelf life of twenty-two years and will probably outlive your fat, sorry ass."
i had to scoop up this book and take it home. i was attracting all sorts of angry stink-eye stares from the incessant giggling in the bookstore. the kid eyed my selection and cracked up.
and then we went shopping at target yesterday and came upon this fabulous item, called "tooth tunes":
yup, it's a musical toothbrush. it plays the music ONLY if you're brushing your teeth, and you get a full 2 minutes of your favorite song while you keep the cavities away. awesome.
there's a limited selection of songs as it's targeted towards kids, but i wanted one. too bad i couldn't find anything more grown up than queen's "we will rock you".
what song would keep you brusha-brusha-brushing away for a full 2 minutes?
