Guess what, I don’t like walking the dog at 6 am, I don’t like having to eat fruit for breakfast if I feel like having a brown sugar & cinnamon poptart, I don’t love shaving my legs, I don’t love work, I don’t love biting my tongue, I don’t love doing chores, I don’t love a lot of things. In fact, if I only read the words of the script of the commercial I would have attributed most of them (or at least the idea) to the stifled character of Betty Draper on Mad Men.
