Yes, I realize we have become quite the exhibitionist (and not in the least bit modest, apparently) society – thus the huge popularity of blogland, Face book, You Tube, etc. but I think the world has just gone a little too “let’s do it in public.” Why, you ask?
Well…let me tell you! A few weeks ago I went to Sams Club, and low and behold, there in the middle of main isle was a set up (complete with dentist styled chairs) for teeth whitening. Lovely….just lovely…now I can get my ultra huge box of rice crispy treats, industrial sized toilet paper and teeth whitened all at once…life is complete. Honestly, I didn’t think a whole lot about this other than to kind of peek around at the folks around me and wonder how many of them planned on perking up their smile at Sams and went on my merry way.
But, I did think about it a few days later when I showed up for my Retail Therapy appointment at the mall and there…just off the Food Court was another (larger) teeth whitening set up!!!!!!!!!! No, it wasn’t in a “shop” but right out there in the main concourse. Yes…this ranks up there with the tattoo stall at the flea Market. Is NOTHING sacred?
What in the world????? I mean, I love me some white teeth (and think most people could use some brightening up), but I don’t want to see folks having it done….yuck. I want to believe that the lovely white teeth/smiles I see are natural…yes; I like a little denial in life. I don’t need to know everything about folks. Are these the same people who climb in those “water massage” chambers (by the way….how sanitary is that anyway?) at the mall and then hop over to get their smile whitened? Jeez, people.
What is the world coming to?????? I really don’t mean to offend anyone with this little rant but this just kind of grosses me out. The next thing you will tell me is that I can get my bikini wax in the produce section of Wal-Mart…..oh no, they aren’t doing that…ARE THEY?
