Airbrushing is everywhere, like those ubiquitous bedbug commercials on New York 1. Like those commercials, it changes your perception of reality. When I stay with friends now, I'm always giving their sweetly proffered couches an appraising side glance. Sure, it looks bedbug free, but who knows? According to the commercials I see incessantly throughout the day, there is an epidemic that I could fall prey to at any moment. A few months of watching bedbug commercials and I've managed to convince myself that they are everywhere, just waiting for their moment.
