Commercialism

I looked through my closet for a plain, white T-shirt. They are all differing shades of gray. As I held each one up for inspection, my 6 year son came in and saw my shirts spread out on the bed.

"Mom. You need Oxi-Clean."

"Where did you hear about Oxi-Clean?" I knew I didn't have anything stronger than Tide in my laundry room. And maybe a Tide pen.

"I saw it on T.V. You should ALWAYS believe what's on T.V."

Huh. I see I have my work cut out for me.

My concern is the non-white T-shirts. I will put a new white something in the washer and it comes out not white. Do we have a lot of minerals in the water or what?

What? You mean you can't?
Haha. The best is when you put something in the cart at the school and your child starts singing the jingle. Awesome!

Thank you for your comment on my Monday-reading! I'm not quite happy with The Time Traveler's Wife and not sure if I'll finish.
