(we're in the money! ok, we're in the pennies. but it's a start.)
I saw a story on MSNBC this morning explaining that the recession is over. How do they know? Because sales of blue jeans are up.
That makes no sense to me.
When I buy blue jeans, it means that my one and only 8-year-old pair of Gap Totally Out Of Style Boot Cut Jeans have either:
A. Shrunk drastically because my dryer is apparently making everything smaller except my hips
B. Developed a hole in the knee which might be stylish if I was 18 but would just be tacky at my age.
So how will we know when the recession is really over? That's easy.
Sales of the following products will soar:
~ Charmin Ultra Toilet Paper. Yay! No more cheap-o see-through Toilet Paper which dissolves on contact with anything including air.
~ Folger's Black Silk Coffee. This is truly good stuff but for some reason it costs extra. I can't wait to buy it again! I might even be nice in the morning. Don't count on it, but I might.
~ Bunny slippers. When the recession is over we can all relax a little. Bunny slippers are the perfect place to start.
Mark my words. These are the products to watch. On the other hand, if sales of Kroger brand extra-thin-sliced-nearly-see-through- but-guaranteed-never-to-mold white bread start to reach new heights - look out. There may be trouble ahead.
