Translated Into BE:

"These strips made me fall completely in love with them!"

Why couldn't they have used,

"These strips completely opened my nasal passages!"

as they used to do? More dumbing-down?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
-Mark Twain
