There are so many slogans for products these days that tout their greenness and wonderfulness, I almost long to be told how awful something is…so awful that I just may want to try it. Before all of those freshmint and cinnamon flavors for the “kid in you,” Listerine was an antiseptic tasting substance that made you wonder why you gargled with it in the first place. The marketing geniuses decided to capitalize on it and tag it with the slogan, “It’s got the taste people hate…twice a day!”
Academy Award winning actor and narrator extraordinaire Morgan Freeman stars in this spot for Listerine, long even before the days of playing a bathing Vampire on “The Electric Company.” Yes. You read that right.
Of course, you have probably completely ignored that last bit and wonder what’s the deal with a bathing Vampire? Apparently, vampires enjoy bathing in their caskets due to heat retention. It is much warmer in there than running across the hall and properly bathing in the bathroom. Besides, there are too many lights in there.
Surely, this influenced Freeman’s decision to join the cast of the film Clean and Sober. He probably felt it was a bait and switch, as the film was not about “that” kind of clean. Luckily for all of us, Mr. Freeman started choosing roles regardless of level of personal hygiene products and has played a variety of entertaining and career defining roles.

All of the travel I have been doing lately has put me in a bit of a funk. Mentally, I am feeling fine, but I am so worn out. There is so much I had to do in such a short amount of time, I think I overextended myself. It is easy to do anyways this time of year. Right now, I am somewhere where I am pretty much being snowed in! It is weather that makes it unfit to shovel because in an hour you will have to do it again so might as well wait until it is finished and you know what you are messing with. It also is bad weather for taking a romantic walk with the lady wearing a muff for her hands and the guy wearing an overcoat and walking to get their Christmas tree. I have not seen anyone wear a muff this entire season, but I have been surprised before.
It is easy after the holidays to fall into Seasonal Affective Disorder, but I have been turning to things that I have used all summer, like drinking orange juice and taking B-12 supplements to keep myself afloat. I used o get the “good stuff” and now I have relegated myself from getting a generic drugstore brand for the price, but notice a difference in the ingredients. It doesn’t include B-6, which acts as a helper, along with it. For me it is particularly important due to the predisposition towards heart conditions that runs in my family.
Right now the B-12 Supplements from Trivita are on sale for $9.99 for a 30 day supply. It is less of a sale and more as a thank you to new customers. Instead of $24.99, it is $9.99. I am looking forward to trying it out. You can get your box here.
