Missed Marketing Op

One of my lovely, non-commenter, blog readers sent me this advertisement....


If you’ve read my tooth fairy posts you’d understand my laughter turned to UGH when I saw this. Why didn’t I think of that? Wait, I DID think of that right down to the fairy dust part, yet I only lost money in the deal I didn’t acquire any.

How many good ideas do we come up with in the day for someone else’s profit.....hummm?

Oh yes, Michelle, you have lots of time---say between 2-4 a.m.---to write Fairy Letters!!! Good example though of getting really good ideas and not taking advantage of them.

there is a show on one of the cable stations around here that is a guy who talks with people who've made millions off of good ideas. everytime i see it, i think, i could do that- but most of us are just too lazy!

maybe you market the south african version:-)

What will people come up with next?! I am alway afraid that my kids are going to get ripped off by the tooth fairy. I mean honestly, what is the going price on teeth these days without breaking the bank? Is it against the rules to dig into their piggy banks and reuse the coins? ;) I just don't want Brooklyn to go to school, say how much she got for her tooth and have little Johnny Joker make fun of her because he got $5 for his!!!

You know, I am kind of curious about this talking tooth fairy letter thing. Maybe you could try it and then post about it (?)

Nickernoodle -- "...reuse the coins." Bwahahahahaha

Hey Michelle! Tooth Fairy came to our house last week! Needed this card!

Mick is flying into Johannesburg this Friday and out on the 15th. Do you have a number he can contact you at in case he needs/wants to??? You can email it to me. gaylafriend@cox.net

You've always been one of those people who has great ideas. I consider you to be quite creative.
