Change doesn’t always do you good.

I understand evolutionary theory.  I realize your standard run-of-the-mill tortoise couldn’t survive on the Galapagos Islands.  I watch the West Minster dog show every year and I get it why the beagle’s tail is so white and wide.

And I realize civilizations generally die off if they remain unchanged.  I nodded and agreed with Gabriel Garcia Marquez in One Hundred Years of Solitude. It only made sense, after all.

I’m savvy enough to know that if we stop at prototypes, we’ll never realize the full extent of our capacities and abilities.  So I’m sure the new and improved, new and improved, new and improved Tide detergent works better on today’s stains than the original did back in the 1940’s when it was invented.

Survival requires adaptation.  Progress requires change.  Advancement requires motion. Improvement sometimes requires a rearrangement.                                                                                                                               

But good God, Target! Did you really have to revamp the whole freaking store?  You’ve  been done for over a month and I still can’t find the Zip Loc Bags!

  1. ha! as i read this post, the chorus from the sheryl crow song, A Change Would Do You Good, played over and over in my mind!

    change is a funny thing, huh? if only we could find a way to keep certain things to stay the same while the others change.

    on the flip side of your target experience, i just visited my neighborhood dunkin’ donuts and they are completely remodeled. it is so fabulous in there now, i am going to go more often!!!

    melissa 🙂

    • Thanks, Melissa! You are absolutely right you know–if only we could find a way to keep certain things the same while other change. For example, if only I could have kept the skinny, fit body of my youth while Dunkin’ Donuts continued to make their stores more welcoming. ~sigh~
