Scary Mail, Scary Me

In the mail today is a pack of "Lifestyle Post Cards"- basically a package of coupons for window updates, home remodelers, massage, etc. Today, there is a postcard that looks exactly like this on one side:
Free Botox!
botoxisthebomb.com
This card is most likely intended for white, middle aged homemakers. So, when did using the phrase "the bomb" become cool for oldies in Edina or North Oaks? This must mean that the phrase is terminally uncool with young people and I should avoid it, right?
So, here's where it gets really sick. I fished it out of the trash an hour after tossing it and it has been sitting on my desk ever since. I'm not seriously considering it, but just the fact that I considered it at all is funky. Okay. I'm throwing it away again.

Do something unique with it! Start a new trend- unwrinklely elbows- or big toe fold line be-gone.

If you do botox I will taunt you endlessly and make your life miserable. Just grow old gracefully like the rest of us. By the way, you are a TD&H man and you'll age WAY better then me.
