Love is one word for it
While waiting in line at the P.O. yesterday, I found myself gazing at an ad that I’ve come to hate. Have you seen it? It’s for eBay, and shows the inside of a cardboard carton with a few spare Styrofoam peanuts rattling around. The text reads something like “Eight gallons of packing material around a pair of shoes is a kind of love.”
Actually, eight gallons of packing material around a pair of shoes — shoes! — is ridiculous, and wasteful, and stoopid. I’m writing a letter.
