Successful Manipulation

Good Lord, Nestle just sent me an email with a "special holiday greeting," and I watched it, and it showed this mother kissing and playing with her smiling baby, and the voiceover says: "She's what you wished for...what you're most thankful for...and why the holidays this year mean even more. Because it's your first together...the first of many you'll share through the years..." and I knew before I even looked at it that it would be a sappy card, and it's from a huge corporation, and it's meant to manipulate me and I know this, and yet as I watched it, I teared up.


With four exclamation points, even.
