“I Miss Cereal Commercials”

Meghan Markle’s dishwashing liquid protest has me wistfully remembering commercials of days gone by…….Tony the Tiger, the Fruit Loops Toucan, the Magically Delicious Leprechaun……..

Now, all I see is an endless stream of drug commercials and horrendous lists of side effects, interspersed by the random car ad…….

Turn on lesser known channels……..the ones that show old Andy Griffith episodes and it’s worse…….

Legal firms waiting to make you millions in settlements, personal products being delivered to your door, life alert buttons in case I fall and no one hears my cries for help…….

How I miss those sugary commercials…..okay, the stuff was slowly leading us toward all those drug advertisements…….but even watching PBS has turned into hospital endorsements touting medical procedures, which of course, all end successfully.

To round out the nightmare for an empath like me are the suffering animal and children charities…….

Yes, how I miss the Doublemint Twins, when life was easier and time wasn’t as fleeting as the sweetness in a slice of gum……………

Calgon………..take me away to the sea……..Nantucket Words
