Woman Doesn’t Have the Strength to Untangle Necklace, But Can Definitely Get on Her Peloton

What is it? What is so damn hard about finding the #strength to untangle a necklace? I don’t know about you, but I usually try for about five seconds and then decide it’s too hard, because all of the other times I put in more time than that, I just knotted it up more. 

But then, of course, there’s that friend of yours—or your Dad, who seems to be able to do it in under twenty seconds. How…how? To you, it feels like climbing Mount Everest…on a Sunday morning…after being hit by a car…and also hungover. Okay, maybe a little dramatic, but low-key very accurate, am I right ladies?

But somehow, somehow you can get on your Peloton for that long (and incredibly intense) workout. That somehow feels like an easy and enjoyable feat, while getting that tiny knot out of your favorite necklace (which you wear every day) seems impossible. 

But it’s time for a reality check…

Can we chat for a second about tangled necklaces? The nerve, the absolute audacity. How the hell do they always get in that state? Who sent them the memo that it was okay to become a hot mess as soon as we turn away for even just a moment?

I for one think the bigger problem is not us, but rather these dinky gold chains. Maybe they’re the ones who need to grow up and take accountability for their actions. Meanwhile, you can find us on our exercise bikes, feeling fit, alive…and avoidant. Mark my words, sweating it out feels a whole lot better than stressing myself out (and breaking a nail while I’m at it).
