So a couple of weeks ago, I got rid of my favorite Tevas, because they had just died.? Whatever was holding the soles to the inside of the sandal just turned into fluff and started to leak out.? Took me a couple of days to figure out what it was that I was finding all over the place.
Since I couldn’t wear them any more, and it was nearly end of season, I decided to shop at DSW in Rookwood – but they were way past sandal season.? So I checked out Tevas (Birkenstocks just hit my instep/arch at exactly the wrong place) on the internet – spent maybe 10 minutes, checked out 2 or 3 sites, made my choices, ordered and moved on to more interesting things.? This was at about 10:30 p m.? And before a full 24 hours had passed, I had Teva ads on my favorite weather forecast page (Wunderground), on the New York Times, Washington Post – just basically everywhere I looked.
As though, having just bought two pairs of Tevas, I was likely to buy more.? Sorry, folk – I have my Teva quota until next summer sometime.? I don’t like thinking about the fact that, given this advertising must be working or it wouldn’t be happening, other people might just keep buying their Tevas in this addictive fashion.
Let’s all just see if we can wake up NOW.? 😕 >
