Sleepless nights

Recently, I have experienced insomnia....for the first time in my life. Sure I've had the occassional "sleepless nights" but never to this degree. Like being up for 3-5 hours in the middle of the night. Most nights I just lay there and feel sorry for myself. Other nights I pray for anyone and everyone that comes to mind. But some nights I just have to get out of bed and head for the T.V.

So flipping through the channels in the middle of the night has given me a wealth of knowledge. First of all, I never knew that only fat, pimply faced people who are lonely and just may need a juicer are the ones watching the T.V. at that time of night.

What I'm saying is that the infomercials are RIDICULOUS!!!! Everyone has the answers for weight loss, and clear skin. AND oh, I can't forget "painless" hair removal. Seriously, there shouldn't be anyone overweight, hairy or have bad skin in the United States. The answers are all to be found on late-night T.V. AND after you lose the weight and get your skin clear, there are several dating services that can "hook you up" with Mr/Mrs. WONDERFUL!!!!

I have to admit, once I did buy something from an informercial. It was hair. Actually, it was hair pieces that fit secretly into your own hair to give you fullness and body. Being that my hair started thinning out when I hit 16, I fell for it. I can remember how excited I was to get it. This is where it gets pathetic. I actually can still see the strips of hair hanging from my bathroom towel rack as I individually dyed each one to match my hair. Now according to the infomercial, you can put them in and style them and your man can run his fingers through it and no one will know (except you) that you are wearing hair pieces. Imagine, my utter disbelief when I put them in only to leave obvious indentations where they were and with one fling of my new found beautiful shampoo commercial hair they flung out and hit the floor.

So maybe I have been burned and find anything "too good to be true" not worth my time. But I must say I enjoy watching the claims of these wonderful products that will "CHANGE YOUR LIFE"!!! They have given me some comedic relief during my sleepless nights...who knows maybe one of these nights, I may just pick up the phone and place an order. They all have a money back guarantee ya know?!!!
