The Small Things In Life

September 8, 2010 at 12:19 (Uncategorized)

Can you image living without the small things in life like lip ice, shampoo, deodorant, nail clippers, a hair brush, hand lotion or books.  What about the bigger things like electricity, batteries, rechargers, water, food and shelter…..

After watching the movie, The Book of Eli, these odd, small, no descript items really opened my eyes.  We don’t realise it but sometimes the smallest things in life, like lip ice, we often take for granted.  Can you image being in scorching, hot, dry weather, having absolutely no water available to you, burnt, dry, lips that are peeling and cracking and not being able to apply a soother like lip ice?  Death!

The Book of Eli opened my eyes to the fact that taking even the tiniest things for granted and wasting them, are huge faults of us as human beings.  We know that once we throw it away, we can always get another right?  We as human, and we’re all at fault, know that when we run out we can buy more, receive more or find more.  What if there wasn’t any more though?  How would be survive? The simple acts of having a bath and washing your hair, charging your cellphone not being available anymore… scary thoughts.  I’d advise you watch the movie; The Book of Eli….It opens your eyes and makes you think.

    BWAHAHAHAHaaaa! ROFLMAO!! Only you would watch a movie that encompasses miracles of the most enormous kinds and take away from it that they were WITHOUT LIP ICE? Steph, did you notice that they didn’t have any hand sanitizer either? LOL!

    Your premise is true but this blog was just too funny =]
    All I could picture was you without your lip ice, hand sanitizer and hand creme. Love you friend. You are insane.
