Common sense

Daily Prompt: Overload Alert
“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.” —
Gertrude Stein
Do you agree?

Looking into the mirror shows the laughter lines near my eyes, and mouth.

Looking into magazines, and news on Yahoo, BBC, ads scream at me to try their wonder serums, and creams.

The ads show decades old celebrities with their forever young faces. I look (secretly yearn) unbelievingly at their smooth (not a line mar them), beautiful faces.

The creams, and serums must be marvelous. The drawback is their prices. My heart rate goes up.

Do I buy what I see?
No.
Common sense prevails. I don’t have to believe.
