Too Much TV

Okay...I thought I was pretty good at monitoring my kid's TV watching. We don't have cable, and they basically only watch PBS shows. But, I guess the Infomertial advertising works well on kids.

Yesterday, Greg went out to check on the lawn. We have a blow-up swimming pool, and it left a dead spot on the grass. The lawn does not look very good; there is a perfect imprint of the swimming pool. Austin said, "You need Patch Perfect. You set it, and forget it." It sent Greg into fits of laughter, which Austin did not understand. He said, "Really, Dad. It's available now."

I am tempted to order it just to prove to Austin that INFOMERCIALS are a crock!!! But I can't take a chance on them actually working. The grass will green up eventually.

Clara did this to us the other day too. We were in the car and she said that if we got in an accident we could call Craig Swapp. "One call, that's all" she said very seriously.

Marianne - At least Clara's looking out for your best interest, right? That's really funny. I guess the advertising companies know what they're doing.
