I was asked this question four times as I walked through a shopping mall today.
I walked past many booths on my way from one end to the other and back again. Two of the booths were selling beauty products derived somehow from the Dead Sea. This does not impress me as a selling feature.
Each time I passed these booths I was accosted by young women wearing bright red lipstick who looked at my eyes as if they had seen something green and slimy underneath them.
Oh! A woman wearing bright red lipstick is standing in my way!
She is looking at my eyes … she looks disgusted …
I don’t know how to answer her question.
The Dead Sea? Really?
No, I don’t want a free sample.
Damn. I have enormous unattractive bags under my eyes.
It must be true. I’ve had the same conversation about them four times in the space of an hour.
Some marketing plans probably look better on paper than they do in the mall.
