Do you like this story?
Its been three weeks and its only now that I thought about posting about it.
You see, I've been pretty much hell-bent on making extra money. The more money I get, the better. I guess it's not wrong to be always on the lookout on earning more doughs. And it is because of that I thought about creating something.
A thing that can prove to be beneficial. Something that can be a overnight sensation. Something that people will use. Something that people never actually thought of. Something like transparent powders.
It's true. The most un-vain, un-cosmetically inclined person on earth as thought of an invention that had something to do with women's makeup. I thought about creating transparent powders (on my daydreams) have it patented, and have it sold to big-name cosmetic companies. I was so excited about my idea that I can't wait to go home and tell my mom and sister about it. (I hope my idea would impress them)
So the time came for me to announce my would-be discovery. I told my sister, "I think I thought about something that was never been done before. Something that I thought I have discovered." My sister was just staring at me, "I thought about making transparent powders so that girls can apply as much powder as they can without fearing of an uneven color on their faces because of too much powder."
The moment my sister clapped her hand and a facial expression that almost read like "bravo! bravo!", I instantly thought she was being sarcastic. She told me, "unfortunately, translucent powders have long been out in the market. I guess your discovery was a tad too late." She ended the conversation with a know-it-all smirk on her face.
I guess I still had to find better ways on how to make extra dough after all.
