I have written before about how motherhood is making me an idiot. Unfortunately, I can't remember where or I would link it. But yesterday I reached a new low.
A commercial came on for the Swiffer mop. Clearly targeted towards my demographic, the commercial featured a mom-ish looking woman about my age. In fact, I think I may actually own the outfit she was wearing. But I digress.
The commercial was talking about how the Swiffer mop was so great that this mom was finally ready to leave her old mop. Just then, her doorbell rang and there was a flower delivery man at the door bearing flowers for her. From her old mop. Which was peeking out from behind a tree. The mom rolled her eyes and shut the door.
And I laughed. Out loud. For several minutes.
Really?! Has my sense of humor finally eroded to the point where I find a mop sending flowers so funny that I laugh out loud?
But I gotta say, were I not so loyal to my Clorox mop, I would dump it for a Swiffer just because their marketing people obviously have some uncanny glimpse into my psyche....
