The ASPCA must have THE smartest marketing person on the face of the planet.
I've probably seen their commercial (you know the one I mean, with the Sarah McLaughlin song "Arms of the Angel" playing and the saddest most pitiful looking puppy dogs and kitties you've ever seen) about a hundred times. I seriously don't think that's far off; it's on quite often.
(sorry I don't know how to post it, other than the link)
No lie, I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Every time it comes on, I try so hard to keep my eyes dry. No dice.
It just popped on about two minutes ago, and without a word, Daryl dropped the book he was reading and quickly looked over at me.
"Are you gonna cry again, hun?" He asked with a knowing smile.
"No, come on now. I'm over that." I scoffed back at him, surreptitiously peeking over the top of the lap top at the TV screen. As Sarah's melodic, mournful voice carried through our living room (cuz of course we had on our surround sound!), and the saddest brown eyes stared through the screen at me....my eyes started to well up again.
"Damn it! Their marketing dude is a GENIUS!" I said, rolling my eyes.
"Why?" Big D asked, looking back up from his book. At the sight of my tears, he started to laugh.
Now, I'm off to go make my donation to the ASPCA.
