Wrinkle Creams, Bath Salts and Global Warming
I often wish I could just sit back and go with the flow. I drive myself crazy at times wondering about and questioning things.
Here are some of the things I wonder about:
Wrinkle creams – They say, “This cream will get rid of 30% fine lines and wrinkles.” Well, what am I supposed to do with the other 70%? Even better still is when they say, “Our day cream will get rid of all of your wrinkles,” and then proceed to say ,”You also need to get our night cream to get rid of the wrinkles.” If the first cream got rid of the wrinkles, why would I need the second cream?
Bath Salts – You are supposed to use bath salts to keep you skin soft and young looking but, at the same time, for thousands of years people have used salt to dry food like beef jerky!!!
Make Up – “This mineral foundation will cover everything.” So why do I have to buy primer to put under it and the concealer to go on top? You put the concealer under your eyes, around your nose, chin, cheeks and anything on your forehead. Whats the difference between that and good old-fashioned foundation? If the first stuff covers everything, why do I need the rest?
One Shoe – Why is there always only one shoe laying in the middle of the road when you see them? Doesn’t the person who lost it notice they are walking with only one shoe and if they were thrown out a car window why just throw out one? Very curious.
Temperatures – Why are you supposed to have a cool room to help you sleep at night but they make churches cold to help keep people awake during the service?
Global warming – Why do I always see articles and shows everywhere about global warming in August but I rarely hear it mentioned in January? Or better yet they say “Temperatures are reaching into to the 100’s.” As if it is some kind of important breaking news. Duhhhh. It is August in Kansas. It gets this hot every year.
Hummmm???? I wonder why????
In spite of what I said, :) if you still love your bath salts, here is a recipe for homemade bath salts from our Dining on a Dime Cookbook, Volume 1.
