Since I'm here first for a change - Something ODD
I enjoy reading really old books. This includes magazines. My library in grade school had ALL of the Life Magazines EVER and I poured through them. My boss found an ad from inside a Life from 1949. I just LOVED the paragraph that described the product. I thought I'd share.
"Among all of Nature's gifts for the food of man, none is more brilliant, more temptingly delicious, more heavily freighted with benefits to health than the tomato. Flashing its vivid, red challenge to the eye, it invites to a feast of golden sunshine. And here, in Campbell's Tomato Soup, it is captured in all it's raciness of flavor and invigorating goodness. This soup offers you a most delightful and convenient way to enjoy tomatoes and benefit from them all the year round. The choicest sun-ripened tomatoes in a smooth puree that no appetite can resist. 11 cents a can."
I thought this was just a very descriptive view of soup. Writing well sure has been around a long time. Not a single adjective, it's all verbs and colors. I also loved 11 cents a can. Now THERE'S a bargain!
Just something a little ODD first thing in the morning. Enjoy!
