As Seen on TV...

At the beach the grownups were able to work a few "date nights" in, and we leisurely strolled along the shops of Pier Park. One of the stores was a place that sold nothing but products from those wacky "ONLY-ON-TV-SO-YOU-BETTER-BUY-IT-NOW-OR-LIE-AWAKE-WONDERING-WHY-YOU-DIDN'T" commercials.

They had the Ped Egg.
(The commercials make me want to vomit and I'm glad I'm not the only one.)

They had the dorky looking Buxton Bag.


Then they had this:

Finn LOVES this ad. When he sees it he gets all excited and says "MMMMmmmmm.... Mom? Mommy? Mom. Can we get one of dose? Yum-yum-yummy!! I love dose... MMmmmm!"
I was tempted, but I refrained. something tells me my puffs wouldn't turn out... right.


I got all excited when I saw these:

Imagine! Now you can track all the dust and crumbs from your kitchen to the living room! From the living room to the bedroom! From the bedroom to the stairs!


But the TRUE and rare find of the evening wasn't so much the product, but the packaging of these:

"It's SUCKSATIONAL!"
Tell me you won't add that adjective to your daily vocabulary.
That's almost as good as 'damntastic'.

Bed Bath & Beyond has all of those "As Seen on TV" products near their registers.

I would bust my ass on those mop-slippers. Our floors are super slippery enough.

Funny. The Ped Egg grosses VolleyGirl out too. Why spend money on that when I have a great cheese grater from Williams & Sonoma?
