"I" Is For Instantly!

We live in a world where so much is available "instantly" - we can send a message, drink instant coffee (though why would someone want to?), fix instant oatmeal, buy anything online, or even break someone's heart in an instant with one wrong word.

Today's post for Miss Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday is for the letter "I."

This arrived in the mail late last week and caught my eye Instantly!
A product Guaranteed  to make you look younger Instantly. Just apply to your wrinkles and they Instantly disappear...amazing! However, the fine print on the package reveals - it takes more like 90 seconds to work its magic. At 67, 90 seconds can be significant. After all, every moment counts when the clock is ticking...

Another dilemma presents you see the size of the trial package they include? 
 Now I have to ask far will that little packet go? Rather than making Wrinkles (plural) disappear, I would have to choose exactly which wrinkle I want to vanish...I mean I have a number of them as befitting someone my age. Each one has a definite place and gives me character. Whichever one I choose to vanish, will it throw my whole alignment out? I mean they are quite well balanced, thank you. And everyone has been earned - well earned. I deserve them.
While on a shopping expedition earlier today, I was walking through the cosmetic department of a major department store. What caught my eye was a huge display showing neatly boxed tubes of some sort of cream...The advertising sign would bring anyone to a halt..."De-Aging Solution." When I continued on and met with my stitching group, my friends were quite intrigued and one of the ladies asked if we could get it in large quantities, like Sheep Dip. We wondered if it was also a product that produced results Instantly. 

For now I will keep the wrinkles and pass on the De-Aging Solution  and concentrate on something else that might be done snapping my fingers and the entire house is clean and orderly. I'll be looking for a flyer in the mail that tells me how to do that.

Be sure to stop by all the other "I" posts over Alphabe-Thursday. 


  1. Indeed we are an instant society! I know how impatient I get when I have to wait for my computer to come, for instance. :)

    You are smart to NOT worry about the wrinkles. Wear them like a badge that you've earned.

  2. LOL.. If you find that product that cleans house instantly....give me a call.

  3. instant gratification - that's what everybody wants these days. me included. I can't help. If technology were a behind, I might not think so.

    have a lovely day.

  4. Would thus trial size only clean a small corner of a room!

  5. When you find the potion, lotion or spell that results in the 'instant house clean' please order me a case - no, order me a pallet load! Thank you!

  6. I like Mimi and you need the instant house cleaner! Needed a little laugh with you not at your expense, dear TO!

  7. haha!!! I agree with you on the "instant house cleaning" kit...make sure if that package arrives that you forward it to my place ;o)

    As far as the teeny tiny sample of would be hard for me to decide what wrinkle to use it on... Is there an instant belly toner too?

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Thank you for stopping by! And yes, the skillet bread is super, duper easy! Are you back from all your travels? (I always say, we love to travel, but then it is also nice to have a few days back before having to get back at my body needs a little vacation after the vacation :o)

  8. Oh I am so with you on an instantly clean house. You did try the cream though right? And will write a follow up of the vanishing of one of your wrinkles. I am quite intrigued : )

  9. That was cute! Wish I could snap my fingers, have the house clean AND get rid of, there's an invention:)

  10. Thanks for the chuckle, I needed this today~smiles!

    I'm visiting from Alphabe Thursday.
    Come see me I have "I" provised and having my first giveaway!

  11. I worked really, really hard to get to be this age and I am proud of it, as I always say. Instant grantification is not what it is cracked up to be - for sure. Lovely post, Pat, and like you, I earned them and I am keeping them as my badge of honor. Judy C

  12. Well, I want to know if it really works!!

  13. If all those de-aging creams and ointments worked, there'd be no plastic surgery. Right?


  14. I think we'd all like the instant house cleaner! But the people who have plastic surgery and botox all end up with plastic faces that look plain odd - I think I stick how I am - wrinkled but genuine!

  15. Hilarious and, uh, pretty pathetic that people buy into thing like that. Pills Potions and Lotions. Yikes!

    I read you like Mary Chapin Carpenter. I used to live in MD and, when she played Wolftrap in VA for a week each summer, we'd go every single night. What a fabulous songwriter/story teller/singer/musician! I even named one of my dogs Chapin years ago. :)

  16. Gosh sign me up for that instant house cleaner. And a vat of the wrinkle cream!

    Thanks for the smile.

    This was a cute link.


  17. You made my day - a laugh that was well-needed!

    Love the idea of the insta-clean house thing - more time for quilting (and gardening and our other pursuits!).

    Great post! Chris

  18. I'd be right behind you in line if they come up with the instantly clean house product. I've tried twitching my nose like Samantha Stevens, but my spells work less like Samantha and more like Aunt Clara.

    Have a great weekend.

  19. I'm with you on the instant clean house thing! Very interesting and humorous post - thanks for smiles!

  20. Instant? Who needs instant?

    All these miracle potions will instantly lighten your wallet, though.

  21. I need some of the instant cosmetics. But like you, I'd be satisfied with the whole clean house thing. :-) So enjoyed your post.
