Not a sad day.
Really, not sad, even though there is a death to report.
Since, oh, last March, I have been using a container of Oil of Olay 7 something. I don't really know the name, but it is a face lotion that is supposed to do wonders for one's face.
I've been using this stuff for a few years. As far as I can tell, it hasn't done much, but I continue to have faith that it will eventually do SOMETHING about the wrinkles and bags. I will say that since it has an SPF listing, I have not had a sunburn, but then, since I don't go out in the sun, well...who can say if it is working?
For months, I have thought the contents were running out. After all, how long can a few ounces of cream last. Every morning after my ablutions, I'd apply the cream and that was about it. I waited for a miracle on my face. Didn't happen.
But the bloody pump thinger, which should only have lasted a month or two, kept going and going, dispensing more and more Olay.
I'd pull it from the drawer, suggest that this was the last time we'd meet, but time after time, it fooled me.
Since Sunday, I've sorta known the end was near.
Today, the last blop blopped out of the spigot and that was it.
RIP, little jar or bottle or whatever it is called.
You served your time. Off to the neverland of recycling you go.
May you join others of your ilk and be happy.
