Today's Review: Keyrings

We, as humans, require keys throughout our daily lives. You don't see birds locking up their nests before they fly off to look for food, or lions in the savannah placing their antelope in a locked cupboard. No, only humans need keys, because we all distrust each other, while simultaneously wanting to steal each other's stuff.

So we have keys. Keys of all shapes and sizes. Keys for our houses, cars, bikes, post boxes, so many keys that it's often hard to find the right one. But our lives would be a whole lot harder were it not for the often overlooked, small piece of metal that we put our keys on, the keyring. Do you have any idea how difficult it would be to dig around in a pocket of loose keys in order to find the right one? It would be like trying to sort through a handful of change, except the change would be long and pointy. Thankfully, we don't have to imagine this nightmarish scenario, because keyrings have been around for ages. Even those old medieval people in the movies have keyrings, and they don't even have functioning toilets. That's how important keyrings are, people wanted to solve the problem of key organisation before finding a better toilet solution than shitting in a pot and throwing it out of the window.

I know, keyrings are fiddly sometimes, you might ruin your nails trying to pry it open in order to slide some keys on, but really it's a small price to pay for the ease of use you get from your keys afterwards. For what is a key without a keyring? Well, it's still a key, but it's a really annoying one. Keyrings are awesome.

My rating: 5/5
