Wrinkles Away?

So, It's Tuesday night, I'm sitting at home and the phone rings. On the other end is my friend who tells me she's having a little get together. "Well it's sort of a hosted party" she explains. Okay, so I tell her I'll go but ask what type of party it is exactly..just so I'm prepared. (Trust me when I say I've been to a lot of really crazy hosted parties...some more fun than others). She continues on explaining that her other friend is hosting this party for NuSkin and a new tool that is supposed to get rid of wrinkles.....Okay I thought, stop right there. Wrinkles? We are in our mid twenties. Do we really need to worry about getting rid of wrinkles? Because last time I checked...wait, let me check again....okay yeah, still no wrinkles. But whatever, it's a bunch of girls getting together chit chatting...which is probably more fulfilling than doing loads of laundry at home. So I say I'll go. I go...and on the way run in to a headache full of traffic which I'll divulge into next.
Here I am sitting at the table watching this woman I know nothing about try to give the most satisfying sales pitch she knows how. Possibly working on others, pushing me further and further away. So here's the product, it's a tool you use in conjunction with other NuSkin products, of course. And the cool thing is it only costs like $450 total. Wow! I need one now!!!! Sense the sarcasm? Yes, you should. I think these products cause more harm than good...and that's my personal opinion, but when your telling your customers that "the energy that's going into you may cause harm if you're using a cell phone...." WTF? That's where the line needs to be drawn. And that's when I stepped out to take "an important phone call". We are so consumer driven. ughhhh!

Haha, That is so great. I have to agree... if it was 20 bucks? Maybe. But $300, just for the tool, plus you have to keep getting new bottles? Please. But, I had fun, regardless. It was good to get to know you. I wanted to ask you more about that channel 5 job... so you better join our book club. :) Hope everything works out on that end.
