My friends and I were talking at lunch today about the groups we hung around with in high school. My group was definitely the geeky/nerdy bunch and there was core group of us that stuck together out of sheer desperation. We figuratively locked arms to protect each other against the onslaught of unkind comments, misunderstandings and downright terror unleashed by the popular kids and the greasers! We were stuck smack dab in the middle.
I'd never been to the "Huddle" for lunch. That's where Anita and her gang hung out and smoked. The popular kids had the latest fashions and we were stuck with hand-me-down chic.
The geeks in my group all grew up to be very happy, well-adjusted and very successful people! Dennis is a producer who works on shows around the world. Go Dennis!
The reason I bring all this up is because I feel like I've been thrust back into that slot I occupied back then. I've heard about companies contacting bloggers requesting a review of their product in return for product to be given away to a lucky reader. Like I said, I've heard about this and I've watched in envy as Chocolatechic reviews such terrific stuff as See's Candy and the latest custom designed cereal!
I've finally been contacted but seriously, what's up with this?
They want me to review a product called "SMELLY WASHER".
I am not kidding!
It's a product that promises to remove mildew smells from washing machines. I don't think I have that problem because my machine get a continuous workout. But perhaps it could help Heidi with her cow poop and mud problem.
Honestly, I think the product could do with a different name. It should be named after the final result.... FRESH WASHER, not "Smelly Washer". Do you agree?
Anyway, I'm going to leave this up to you? The company said they would sent some product to give away to my readers. Should I contact them or not?
TRY TO GET THAT "SMELLY WASHER" PRODUCT or.............
The future is in your hands.
