Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. I could be hyper-sensitive to all the commercials of the 'must have's' that are continually pounded into peoples heads, as l scale my life down to what l can pack into my van.
This morning on Good Morning America, while l was eating my breakfast at the Comfort Inn in Marshfield l could barely contain my shock that they were doing a feature story on nail polish that cost $5,000. a bottle, it contained actual GOLD in it. No that price is not a typo, $60. per nail, each time.
Who would even think of spending money on this? That is a $720 manicure. WHAT??? Seriously?? And l to even consider this news-worthy???
Then today on one of my appointments l was in a bike shop. Not the motorized ones, but the peddle your ass off kind. There were many for $1,000 and $2,000, l also saw one for $3,300. That's almost as much as l paid for my van. Okay, l could see if you were a professional bicycle rider, but the average Joe?
If just seems so....collapsible, this crazy mentality for excess. As l said earlier, it's probably that l am just hypersensitive to it since l am running in the opposite direction. Things that make you go......hmmmmmm.
