They buzzed but the blades didn’t move and so didn’t cut my hair. It was a little annoying since they were quite expensive. I kept meaning to go out a buy a new set but kept forgetting and meanwhile my hair kept getting longer and longer.
I was about to learn a very important lesson in life.
I paid for a new pair of the same make and the label stuck to the new pair said “Oil before every use.” Arggggh.
I went upstairs and applied oil to my old trusty set and they sprang into life. I am not permitted to return the new set due to the nature of the product.
It reminded me that we must add regularly oil if we are to get the best out of anything.
Oil can be:
- Quality time into our relationships
- Healthy food into our bodies
- Exercise into our day
- Reading into our week
- Learning into our lives
- Holidays into our year
- Savings into our bank
If we miss the oil out then we will save time and effort up front but it will come to a grinding halt soon enough.
