Wouldn’t life be amazing if, when you found a hairdresser who styled your hair absolutely perfectly, perhaps for the very first time in your life, you could push a pause button and keep every hair at just that length and looking exactly the same for as long as you wanted? However, what happens? The very next time you wash your hair and attempt to reproduce the previous effect it just doesn’t work out. No matter how you concentrate on blow-waving in the same way as the stylist, the result is always different.
Now, fast forward just a few weeks and what has happened? The style is changing day by day because the hair is constantly growing, and it probably hardly resembles the way it looked when it was cut and styled the last time. That’s just the name of the game. Sad to say.
The same problem exists when you take your beloved pooch to the doggy parlour. Out he or she struts, often with a bow tied onto either the ears or in the middle of the forehead, looking so very pleased with life. So, the bows fall out within hours and then, before you can blink, the wretched hair starts growing again at an alarming pace. Oh, please can someone invent that pause button which would most certainly make you millions in no time at all!
Maybe the pause button could have a few variations such as stopping the grass from growing too quickly, and more importantly, keeping a home totally dust free. There are just so many chores that become so very tedious and mindless which really could be banished for ever, or at the very least, reduced to a once every six months or once a year ritual. It is just such a total waste of valuable time to have to constantly re-do cleaning, mowing the lawn, getting one’s hair cut and styled and the list goes on and on ad infinitum! Please, if you are reading this and see yourself as an inventor, could you take heed of my pain and invent that pause button? Thank you so much in advance!
Just realised something – if the pause button on life’s frustrating issues does appear as a new invention, we may be faced with demonstrations due to people losing business. So, all things considered, and not least of all, the income of millions of people, forget the above and let’s accept the inevitable of being humans on this planet of ours. Hair will grow (as long as one is healthy), pooches will need constant grooming (unless you prefer the shaggy, unkempt look), grass will grow (unless you keep a goat or a flock of sheep in the garden) and dust will continue to be the bane of one’s life!
Somethings will simply have to stay the same as they are, sad to say!
