GIVE ME BEAUTY GIVE ME AGE

I teach a marketing class and last night I blew the neural pathways of most of my students by injecting the thought that beauty is there in age, lines in the face, worn skin, and white hair.

It was a hard sell so to add to their confusion I had brought along two swatches of area rugs. One machine made and a spectacular piece of elaborately patterned Italian design.It had a sheen and plushness and sculpting that Michelangelo could have taught

Then I pulled out a had knotted 400 kpi silk and wool rug. It wore its years very well considering its forty full traffic years.

What do you think they thought?
