Just a few things I’d love to change

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!

Update and Comments: 8 March 2020

Wouldn’t it be great if …?

The whole world seems to be completely obsessed and paranoid regarding this rather frightening Coronavirus (Covid-19), and it might be a good idea just to change topics for a brief moment. Hence my latest, possibly rather frivolous, update which I hope lets you forget the doom and gloom of a possible impending annihilation of the entire human race as well as the endless discussions of the need for facemasks  and hand sanitiser which have dominated the media over the past few days.

With all the incredible inventions, as well as technological advances which surround us and seem to be racing ahead on a day to day basis, why hasn’t someone managed to invent a way of eliminating dust once and for all? It would be amazing, and a wonderful time saver, if once the mindless job of dusting was completed, it did not need to be repeated ad infinitum throughout one’s lifetime. Removing dust from every nook and cranny is just one of those irritating and necessary chores which never goes away. It’s fine if you are someone who can ignore that murky looking film, covering every possible surface, which arrives out of nowhere just when you have the least time and so many important matters which need your attention.  Now for your own sanity as well as your sinuses, you have to drop what you are doing and dust! What a pain!

Another thought is that it would be ideal if one were able to slow down hair growth when time and money are important factors in one’s life.  When you finally find a hairdresser who does exactly what you want after you have spent valuable hours sitting in the salon and the expensive result makes you look quite amazing, why can’t you slow down your hair growth for several months so that you can have time to really enjoy your new look? What happens? Two weeks down the line and that fringe needs a trim, the colour you paid a fortune to achieve is fading and your roots are beginning to show.  You have hardly managed to get used to the “new you” and you are rapidly heading back to the “old you”!

I am not wanting to create even more unemployment than is currently the case and dusting does create jobs, but it would be nice sometimes to be able to slow certain things down such as cleaning as well as hair growth (apologies here for those who are trying so hard to speed up the work of the follicles – nothing personal meant at all). If anyone is desperately planning on becoming an inventor, well maybe these are two avenues you could consider exploring. I won’t even ask for a commission for giving you the idea!

Bye for now and see you on the Magic Roundabout!
