stupidest pharmaceutical product ever
This stuff is designed to alleviate one of the most heartbreaking, one of the most vexing afflictions that women face today...
Disappointing eyelashes. Or, as the ads call it, "hypotrichosis".
I don't know about you, but I wish I had a penny for every time I heard a woman say, "You know, I have a great boyfriend, a satisfying career, wonderful friends, and a well-rounded lifestyle... but I'll never really be happy until my eyelashes are an eighth of an inch longer. I wish someone would invent a prescription drug that has just a few nasty side effects, so my life can finally be complete."
These are the same people who created Botox. Lose your wrinkles, and your facial expressions! Marvelous idea. It was also a marvelous idea to hire a spokesmodel who was never actually lash-challenged in the first place; I'm sure no one will notice that.
I live in the land of Estoty with my sweetie, Richard, and our cat. I'm one of those mature (thirtysomething) students you see in the halls, the ones who make you think, "Well good for her, she hasn't given up on life yet, although she probably should."
My goal: to become a lawyer
