We were in the store the other day, and Chickie spied small bottles of chocolate milk with Toy Story characters on the labels. She excitedly pointed them out and asked, "Mommy, can we get those?"
"No," I told her.
"Well," I said, "I can make chocolate milk at home, and it's healthier [because I don't use that much chocolate] and cheaper." I decided it was time to teach her an important marketing lesson. "The Toy Story characters don't make the milk taste any better," I told her.
"But Mommy," she explained, "It's not about it tastes better. It's about it looks cool."
Her grammar may not be the best, but she sure does have a good grasp on advertising. Is she too young to start sending in applications for business school?
