Scary Picture

So the only things "they" advertise on TV these days: Cell phones and medication. Why? I can't imagine enduring some of the side effects, which often seem to echo the symptoms, if they're not worse than the actual illness. Well--I'm sort of intrigued by a substance that causes a sudden compulsion to gamble.

But I'm really mulling over a cell phone commercial--the most recent one where the parents are totally confused by their cell phone so they buy a simple one that clears everything up for them. Now, I have adult children. I know I'm not a young chickie (the term even dates me), but for pity's sake, those two are too young to be stymied by a phone. ;-)

Or am I huddling behind fear of an incipient midlife crisis?
