New Formula

It seems many of my tried and true products are now sporting “new formula” captions on their packaging.  Good grief.  I don’t want a new formula.  I’ve been buying these things because I like how they are.  I don’t want my armpits to smell different.  I don’t want my soap more bubbly.  I don’t want my hairspray capable of bonding a tile to the outside of the space shuttle.  Ever heard “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it?”  All too often once the ole “new formula” pops up I end up on the search for a new option.  Humans obviously aren’t satisfied with constantly reinventing themselves.  We have to rope the things we rely on daily into the process as well.
