Having posted the fact that I chose free make -up over healthy exercise I have been pondering the thought that I may actually be quite a shallow person. After all, there are no great long tracts about life and the unverse on my blog and, try as I might, I can't see there ever being any.
I'm not saying that I'm a stupid person. I have got certain qualifications after all....... I'm just saying that maybe the important things in my life probably won't qualify me for the Nobel Prize.But then, would I want the Nobel Prize ? Does it involve fun and laughter and free make-up ? No.
I do sound rather shallow.
However, is there anything wrong in liking nice things ? If, to be deep, you have to trog about with a grimace on your face ,rambling on about particle physics and refusing to shave your armpits, then I don't want to be deep. I like chatting with my friends in a country pub garden over a glass of cold white wine. I like trying on clothes that I can't afford. ( I don't actually buy them ) I like painting my nails and reading about lip gloss ( should I go nude or cherry red this season ?) I like to live my life the way I do.
My life is pretty simple. Pretty straightforward. No deeper than a puddle. But right now I'm happy and, to be honest, that's all anyone could ever ask for. Don't you think ?
