Maybe advertising is just gravy. Something that moistens up the really big important stuff, making it go down a little smoother. Making everyday life easier to chew. Giving everything around us more taste. Sure, the world could exist without advertising and social media. Everything would still go on as planned. But the turkey wouldn't be as tasty. Gravy just makes everything it touches a little bit...better. Now that I've tasted it, I wouldn't want to live without out.
