Recently, I received an email from PR for Freeman Beauty, and one of the Freeman brands that she promoted was Psssssst! the original spray dry shampoo.
Psssssst!  That takes me back.  As I told PR for Freeman Beauty, I'm old enough to remember the classic Psssssst! radio spot, when Psssssst! was a Clairol brand:

Psssssst! – there’s something new / Psssssst! – instant spray shampoo / Clairol freshens your hair – instantly / with P-s-s-s-s-s-s-t / Psssssst! – is not a wet shampoo / oh, no / Psssssst! – is not a dry shampoo / oh, no / spray and brush is all you do / then go / ’cause Clairol freshens your hair – instantly / with P-s-s-s-s-s-s-t.

She wrote back:

Haha, I loved your response! That's right...the ORIGINAL! ... Also, I quite like your blog, you keep hinting at your "seasoned" age, but it's enlightening and refreshing to get perspectives other than the 20-something age group (this is coming from a 24 year old!).

I don't know whether to feel better or worse.  The last time I heard someone described as "seasoned," another person muttered, "yeah, like compost." :-)
