Love is in the air.

I heard 2 commercials on the radio today that just epitomize societal stereotypes. Both were special Valentine's Day ads.

First, the jewelry ad:
"The best thing about Valentine's Day is how easy it is to make the woman happy with jewelry."

Second, the body wrap ad:
"I've already lost 16 lbs and can't wait to lose more for my man."

In addition to being materialistic, now I have to be easy and want to starve myself to please a man. Thanks, I'll pass.

And on a sidenote, I was riding the elevator in the parking garage today and heard a woman say to the other, "That's one good feller you's got." Glad to know someone learned her good English.
