Shades of Gray Paint

Do I need to search for Shades of Gray Paint? No, I do not.

Then this morning, I see this Wayfair Ad on my Facebook feed:

Umm…yes, I like vampire stories and kittens, but still…I might be the only person to see these two comforter sets advertised side-by-side.

I wish I’d gotten a screenshot of the gallon-size bottle of sunscreen, also a Facebook Ad. Really, Facebook??? I’m pale, but that’s a little much, even for me! LOL
