Funny Madelyn

While on the phone with my sister-in-law, Heidi, sweet Madelyn walks in and says . . . "Mom, Do you have acne?"

I said, "Acne???? Well I suppose I do get the occasional pimple, why?"

Madelyn responded, "Mom, on this commercial they have some stuff that will get rid of all your acne problems. Your face will not have any more red dots. It is amazing."

I am trying so hard not to laugh and I say, "Really? Do you think it can help me?"

Madelyn, shaking her head, "You should see the girl pictures with no red dots, you can have no red dots too."

I have since gone in the bathroom and stared long and hard at my face. I am trying not to take it personally.

The American Marketing Machine is alive and well!

Out of the mouths of babes...just what was SHE thinking?! I'm sure you don't need any acne treatments!

That is absolutely hilarious! Ditto on Valerie's comment: I'm sure you don't need any acne treatments! To be honest, I don't think I have even ever seen the occasional zit on your face! That is SUPER funny though! I'm thinking that most of America is like Madelyn--they see a commercial and suddenly "need" something they really do not need at all! Wow!

That is hilarious! It's a good story to remind her of when she starts getting red spots on her face. :)
