« Poetic term of the day -- April 30, 2008 | Main | Abecedarian -- did someone say Abecedarian? »

April 30, 2008


And I thought I had problems.

I always loved the idea from the book of Proverbs: "as a man thinketh in his heart, so he is." And the interpretations from self-help books that you can think your way to wealth, health, bliss and oh, so much more. My favorite ad (I think it used to be in the magazine, Pacific Spirit) was one for a CD that could give you instant breasts. All you had to do, the ad claimed, was sit back, relax, and think your body had huge bosoms. The CD, evidently, could help you think this thought. And yes, it would happen! There were even testimonials . . .

And to think, I never bought the CD!!!

left the house

of coming back
