I think we’re all aware that the card industry can be slightly ridiculous with the cards they produce. Cards that are just waiting to be scooped up by the ever-so-eager consumer dying to drop the $5.95 they have burning in their pocket.
Somewhere along the line, the card companies convinced us that it was a GREAT! idea to buy cards that celebrate getting one’s braces off, Tuesday, or a “just because” card. Really? “Just Because?”
Here’s a card that cost me the equivalent of a meal at Tim Horton’s, Just Because.
“Just Because what” you ask? Well, I haven’t quite figured that part out yet, but it seemed like a GREAT! idea at the time, so here’s your card.
Anway, as I was beginning to say, in all my years of giving and receiving cards, I have yet to come across one quite as unique as this one. As Rebecca and I were shopping in Chinatown yesterday, we came across a card that I don’t think would quite take off in our mainstream market. It did, however, make me laugh out loud. Like really, a good hearty chuckle. So much so, that I thought I should take a quick picture. I apologize for the extreme blurry-ness of it. I was performing a covert operation as I wasn’t really allowed to take pictures in the store, so I had to do it behind the card stand really quickly and without a flash.
In case you can’t read that it says: “Just a word about your successful diet…”
(On the inside it says Congratulations.)
I can’t really see this one taking off – it’s not so much up there with “Happy Birthday”. You never know though, sometimes, you just need a card to help you find the words.
