Confessions (cont’d)

Time for an update.

Really, I don’t know why I feel the need to reveal all these embarrassing facts. I’m just going to blame it on its cleansing effect, like it was some kind of virtual flagellation or something. It’s worked for a lot of people for a lot of years, to purify themselves and stuff.

I get these daily Groupon emails with offers ranging from vacation cruises to helicopter rides and Globetrotters tickets. Today, I got the Justin Bieber Singing Toothbrushes (only $14), and was instantly horrified. Not so much about the offer (“Pop star Justin Bieber’s angelic face -barf- graces a pair of dentist-approved toothbrushes, which echo his hit singles for 120 brush-heavy seconds”), but more about the fact that my brain, before I could stop its treacherous ways, considered buying one for my daughter.

It’s ok, go ahead and ridicule me. But remember, I can see how many of you click on the deal link.

    Good afternoon, Ms. Chico. I have seen that same offer too, which, as you relate, landed in my inbox as well. Just like it happened to you, it also caught my attention the existence of such a horrid device, and it also made me gag. It made me wonder A LOT about the integrity, moral values, and even sexual preference of the dentists who endorse such an awful contraption. And, contrarily to what you state, it NEVER, EVER crossed my mind to consider buying one. Not for any of my daughters, not for myself– not even for my worst enemy. Clicking on the offer deal? What an outrage that you can think of such a thing! There is something called ‘dignity,’ you know? Some of us still respect that old-fashioned value. Have a great day.

    Sincerely,

    Diana

    PS: It comes in purple and pink!
