When I told my 17-year old daughter about my blog project, she looked like a deer in the headlights.
She typically ignores me when I talk about my blojects, but this one got her attention. She looked me directly in the eye (for the first time in about 3 years) and said,
"NO!. You cannot blog about that, Mom. It's gross!!!"
Which made me even more excited about my bloject.
I needed to find something made of hard plastic with a curve. The "Fun Air Scoop" was the perfect shape, but it was simply too big.
I started wandering around the house looking for a smaller version. Nothing in the kitchen. Nothing in the garage. I checked in the bathroom.
It was perfect! I tried it on. It fit.
So I went to Linda's bedroom to tell her about my discovery. When she opened the door I was wearing the headband on my head and a huge smile on my face.
"What?" she asked, waiting for me to say something.
Then I repositioned the headband. "See?" I said, proudly.
"Don't worry, Linda! It doesn't go on top of my sweat pants," I said, in an attempt to reassure her. "It goes underneath."
I figured she needed more convincing, so I started sharing my marketing plan with her.
"They sell these SmoothGroove Camel Toe Cups on the internet for $25 plus shipping and handling. I can set up a kiosk at the mall and sell them for $19.99!"
Of course, I was just kidding about selling them in a mall kiosk for $19.99.
I could get at least $29.99. Maybe 2 for $50.
They don't call me a stinkin' marketing genius for nothing.
