last week i found, what i thought, was the worlds best invention. a little plastic container with a screw off lid that holds roughly 150 bobby pins (so you dont loose them). i brought one, i put it in my bag and today, a week later, i have 4 left.
my whole life, this has always dumbfounded me. where do they go? whenever i really, really, need just one, there is not one to be found. but when i am not looking for them, they turn up in the strangest of places. i appreciate them don’t get me wrong, they are a handy little invention. i once i started a car with a piece of macaroni, a crucifix and a bobby pin. but they are strangely extremely easy to loose.
about a year ago, i started a facebook group called “Where the hell are all my bobby pins?” and today i have 49,643 members, 1,296 wall posts and photos galore. this brings me to the conclusion that i am not the only one that has lost a few thousand bobby pins in my time, yet it still ceases to amaze me that not one of them is anywhere to be found.
