What we can really do without!
Thank you for reading the previous post and for making further suggestions. Here they are:
Andrea from http://acatofimpossiblecolour.blogspot.com suggested: Tonsils, tailbones and appendices (of course, that nuisance appendage that can become life-threatening without notice...and we have no use for it!). Great thinking Andrea!
Sarah Lulu from http://serendipitylulu.blogspot.com agreed with some of the suggestions I had made...plus many more! By the way, don't you love the name of her blog: "Normal is a cycle on a washing machine"?
Houda from http://lovemyhijab.blogspot.com suggested: Food addiction (yes, and who doesn't have one of those!).
Lilly from http://www.lillyslife.com suggested blog addiction(another of those afflictions I am sure we all share!), stress, illness, wrinkles, tooth decay and long sightedness. Makes me cringe when I think about it!
Mae from http://the-unreal-city.blogspot.com suggested wisdom teeth, hairy ANYTHING but especially toes and ears. Mae also pondered:
"Why shopping is tiring when there's plenty of money and boundlessly fascinating when broke....."
And, anyone who mentions hommous in the comments section gets to have a link posted on my blog, so here's to you Darla! (from http://fromseatomountains.blogspot.com)
I guess we need another three million years of evolution before any of these annoying qualities are annihilated from woman- and man-kind for good! In the meantime, there is always, plucking, waxing, shaving etc, revelling in the fact that glasses can be turned into a fashion item and that there are some amazing op shops finds. Plus, what a terrific high one gets from a good bargain; the cheaper the item, the higher the high! Oh, and what use would all that dental equipment be if it weren't used for teeth? If dental problems were no longer an issue and hence the need for dentists abolished, then maybe these professionals with immaculate attention to detail could venture into beauty? Imagine getting your eyebrows waxed whilst inhaling laughing gas...regardless of the result, at least pain would be reduced somewhat. Or would you rather a mani/pedi with that same grinding, whizzing sound?
