Untruth in advertising

Mid-morning my sweetie was watching tv, when a commercial came on:

At the end of the advertisement, I turned to my sweetie, and said (in a very sincere tone, with a very genuine expression on my face), “Hmm… I’ve had that gum, but that hasn’t been my experience…”

My sweetie looked at me for a minute.  I saw his mind process (and attempt to reconcile) my silly words with my serious demeanor; and then it clicked.  He laughed out loud.

And I smiled.  It feels wonderful to be able to help someone laugh in their day.

    During the years I was single, it’s what I missed the most – having someone to share silliness with!
