A couple weeks ago, my oldest girl ran out of her very favorite toothpaste. When I went to get a new tube at the Wally Mart, they did not have it anymore. Darn. Now what to do? As I sat there staring at the myriads of brands and flavors totally stumped at which to get her next, a pretty box jumped out at me. Do ya know they pay big bucks for designers to make purty packaging so that you will buy the product for that reason? So I grabbed the pretty pack, read mint on the package and threw it in my cart. Had I read it more thoroughly and realized the name was "Kiss Me Mint", I might have changed my mind. Do I really want to buy my 17 year old a toothpaste with that name? Maybe I should have looked for one named "Back off Buster Mint" or "Your invading my space Mint". But I digress.
Anyhow, I bring home the new toothpaste and give it to her. Her comment: "Umm, purple toothpaste?" Who knew it was purple? I just like the packaging. After using it a week, I ask her, "How're you liking the toothpaste?" Her answer: "I have no respect for purple toothpaste". Okey Dokey, then.
