Jackie Life Solutions: A New Product Line

17 Jul

I think it’s time I get serious about starting my own business.

Like my own product line.  Yeah.  I need to start my own business featuring a line of products to address problems I face on a daily basis.  I assume that since my problems are universal in nature, they’ll apply to everyone and I will instantly make money based on the fact that by making products to solve my life’s problems, I am also by extension, making products to address everyone’s problems.  And even if no one is interested in my super awesome life solutions line, it doesn’t matter.  Because I will have solved the  most nagging problems I face every day.  It’s a win-win with the happiness factor.

Things like excessive underarm sweat.  I’ve blogged about it before and I’ll blog about it again.  I shouldn’t need Botox injections or the removal of my sweat glands to help me get a grip on sweat and finally enjoy summer.

Then again, as long as bathing suits exist I probably won’t ever enjoy summer.

I also have a slew of other problems that today’s product development is failing to properly address.   Like underwear that don’t look like granny panties that are also comfortable.  What’s so hard about that?  Or a nude bra that doesn’t look absolutely and terribly boring and sad.  Or a pillow that doesn’t lose its super awesome fluff support after a few weeks of drool accumulation.

What’s so hard about this?

The key to true happiness and complete satisfaction in life isn’t some hidden secret you only unveil when you’re 60 and wish you could relive life again.  True happiness is having things like garbage bags that stay around the trash can instead of falling into it with the goopy leftovers from last night.  It’s things like self-cleaning cat litter boxes that save you from having to clean up after your own cat’s feces.  It’s pot holders that double as oven mitts and pens that glide on paper but don’t bleed

Perhaps this is a sign of my (ever-increasing) age: the simpler pleasures in life.

    You are so right..My panties(knickers) are all black, and a good size that fits over my stomach and will not roll down again the minute I put on a dress or skirt or trousers …Yes ..even though I have reached 72 I would like my panties to look a little sexy…you never know who you might meet!

    Well I just want to add a smile into your happiness factor… Because you always make me smile when I read your blogs. And you are so right about simplicity. It’s the little things that make the day to day more bearable.

    I do believe the Pilot G2 fills in for your pen problem.

    LOL- and what about having to call your cell phone from the home phone cuz you lost your cell in the house?!!

      Unfortunately, I can’t do that because I don’t have a home phone. Instead, I make Dave call it. If he’s not around, I’m out of luck entirely. Especially because I have to do it often.

      I wish I could do it for other things too. All the things I commonly lose should have an indicator on them that I can call a number for and it makes a beep.

      That or I should just start eating vitamins for memory.

    I sometimes think Gok has his subjects wear the worst underwear ever at the beginning of his program… sadly although I wish he would pick me he’d take one look at my underwear drawer and decide they weren’t bad enough.
    My philosophy has always been as long as I feel and look good in my underwear I can almost cope with whatever else is thrown at me.

      I like that motto. I might go buy a bunch of awesome underwear just to see what it does for me.

    I have the underarm sweat problem, too. My sister and I call them “pitters.” Try Certain Dri, if you can find it. Possibly at Target. Bottom shelf of the deodorant aisle. It’s a roll-on you put on at night before bed, and it helps shrivel up your sweat glands or something. But you have to do it every night for a week or so before you see a difference. It does help, though. Good luck with all the other problem-solving stuff! I’m with you on the nude bra thing, too!

      I just got Certain Dri from another recommendation. I hope it works 🙂
