Today I have been watching the Olympics, just trying to get
into the spirit of things, it is all very exciting, and I opted for the very
obvious and girly first choice: the gymnastics. Itís just incredible to watch,
the womenís gymnastics it was, they just defy gravity, and they do it with so
much grace and poise.
However, although I watch in amazement at what is
undoubtedly phenomenal talent, I canít help but be disheartened, how can
something so beautiful be plagued by something so hideous?! Scrunchies!!! They
were everywhere; flying, leaping, spinning scrunchies! Colour co-ordinated
scrunchies! Theyíre such dainty, pretty
little girls whose pretty little heads are outweighed and overpowered by giant ugly
scrunchies. Itís bad enough their flippy floppy ponytails swinging about from a
scrunchie but the worst is when they have those big buns with 2 or 3 scrunchies
placed over the top, just framing the bun with a double scrunchie ensemble!!
It just wonít do. These are some of the most talented girls
in the world, we shouldnít have to see them in scrunchies, although I accept
that a full head of beautiful hair extensions may not be the most practical
choice when competing but surely that would be better than scrunchies?!
