I know I’m being tracked by everyone, especially google. I see it in my search history when recommended topics appear on my feed.
However, this morning, my feed bombarded me with these recommendations:
Um… I don’t remember looking at anything to do with brows, or making my face appear younger…
I can’t be bothered and really don’t care at this point. I’m a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). This may include mascara and lipstick, or not. Take it or leave it, darlings…🙃
I wonder why google thought to send this topic to my feed…
Below the brow recommendation, something about hair appeared.
My hair is not greasy. It’s thick and long and in this oppressive humidity quite frizzy. Also, I practice regular hygiene with water, shampoo and conditioner, so what is happening?
Next, this. ???
I’m sure Lady Gaga is a lovely lady but I never google celebrities, and could not care an iota less about their fashion choices or exercise regimes in their billion dollar mansions. Additionally, I do not to desire to achieve such hard-core toneness on my body (but could probably benefit from some extra strengthening exercises to improve flexibility). I simply would not search up comparisons with celebrities.
What is happening?
Then, an unrelated article popped up.
It began to dawn on me that this sounds like the sort of topics my daughter is interested in.
Her bedroom, which I cleaned and decluttered while they were away camping, is tiny. She’s spent a year and a half in that room during the pandemic, even during school hours. I can appreciate her desire to improve her surroundings…
She also recently complimented my hair while simultaneously complaining about hers, and, she likes my brows and eyelashes.
“How come I didn’t inherit your long lashes and your thick hair?” she asked me. (Her lashes are perfectly suitable for her eyes and although she has thinner, shorter hair than I do, she’s got this gorgeous colour which reminds me of spun gold.)
“Everything on you is beautiful,” I responded, which earned me an eye roll. 🙄
I remember clearly what it was like to be 13, 14… 🙂
But none of any of that explains why her searches appear on my feed.
Wait … Yes it does.
She must have been hogging my data again.
She has a limited data plan and occasionally I had let her use a hotspot. We had a delay somewhere recently and to pass the time she asked to search up something but didn’t have data. I connected her to mine for the 20 min we had to wait. The password must have stored on her phone. And yesterday, she was in the car for four hours coming back from camping…
Good to know what she’s surfing the net about. 😎
Now, how do I kick her out of my phone??
