Made In The U.S.A.

1.21.09: I bought necessities today. Q-Tips, which are definite necessities if you, like me, absolutely must stick them in your ears after every shower. I don’t know if I’ve had a single shower in the last decade that hasn’t been followed by a good Q-Tipping. And not just any old brand. I need Q-Tips brand Q-Tips from Q-Tips maker Unilever.

When I noticed I was running low, I quickly panicked at the thought: what if Q-Tips are not Made In The USA? I feel very passionate about my daily Q-Tipping and I assure you that no imposter Q-Tip will suffice.

My heart raced as I scanned the box, looking for the telltale sign that I’ve started to realize will be there if in fact a product is manufactured on our shores. I was about to give up hope, but then… there, off in the distance, at the very bottom of a bit of tiny type, the most beautiful words I’ve seen all month: Made In The USA.
