<p>Crystal Light makes a powdered drink called, "Focus."  It says so right on the box.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I got up, I poured the powder in my cup, I walked to the break room to fill said cup with water.  I mixed the powder and the liquid.  I drank some.  I chatted with my coworker who entered the break room.   I followed said coworker back to her desk to see pictures of her baby boy.  On the way, another coworker joined us and we started discussing her recent wedding.  On my way back to my desk, I detoured to walk by a window and confirm that it is indeed still nice outside.  Which reminded me that my yoga instructor friend is coming over tonight so I figured I better email her to make sure we were still on.  As I was doing that, my coach at work came over to make sure that she and I are still on for running tomorrow morning and we talked about the race she ran on Saturday and how she came in 3rd!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Now I'm back at my desk.  My focus drink is gone.  And, I do not believe I got any work done.</p>
<p><br>
I should sue for false increasing of hopes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hmph.</p>

<p>Well, I guess, if you put it that way. . .</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can see your point.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then I think the drink should say, "Focus on the important stuff." </p>
<p> </p>
<p>You know, if they wanted to be accurate 'n stuff.</p>

<p>You would have grounds for lawsuit if your vision had gone all blurry and whatnot.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did you know that I worked on Crystal light way back when it was first being developed?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Please don't ruin my legacy of products.</p>

<p>Oache,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then there should have been a picture of glasses on the box.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I guess this teaches me about expectations.</p>

Sighingly,</p>

<p>You are not the first nor the last to be influenced by marketing mumbo jumbo and then left like a heap on the side of the road. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>at least you didn't fall for the Penis Enlargment scams like HP.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/shock.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
