Care.com...The kids on Care.com commercials behave like uncontrollable brats. Behind such brats are often parents who failed to establish any kind of boundaries with their kids. And these parents have the gumption to bring in a sitter for their little terrorists? These kids are not coming across as cute. Rather, these kids demonstrate the worse in parenting. Parents who have convinced their kids that the world revolves around them. I've commented on their commercials before. They should consider changing their marketing. Of course, if they are actually making money from it, then, hey, I guess they're on to something.
Amazon Echo...Now your house can be just like the Enterprise from Star Trek. Just shout out your request, and Echo will comply. Unless the command is "bring me more coffee." Of course, a decent smartphone or tablet might be able to do the same tasks, I think. I hate to say it, but it vaguely reminds me of a sophisticated Clapper. (You know, clap on, clap off...the Clapper.) It might be fun for about five minutes...until the novelty runs out. Perhaps, they could make a Chia Echo. The pottery that grows and turns your lights on for you.
Denny's; The Thing Burger...Not appetizing in anyway. The new and improved Thing from the latest Fantastic Four movie looks like...well, since this is a family blog, I better not say. What was wrong with the Thing from the previous Fantastic Four movies? He was entertaining. The new Thing is not anymore realistic. I don't know what happened to this new movie. It's a mess. It's just cause for a Mystery Science Theater 3000 reunion show. Did the creator look at The Green Lantern movie and say, "I think that's the direction I'd like to go." As for Denny's since there's zero interest in the new Fantastic Four movie, maybe you should rename the burger to something more popular. Call it the Trump burger.
I'm working on illustrations for my children's novel, even though I hoped to find someone to provide professional ones. Here's a sample of one:
Be good to yourselves!
