When you finally achieve a pepipo, you just want to keep it like that forever!

Is a pepipo a tangible object?
An emotion or state of mind?
A situation?
Winning something?
Breaking a record?
Being the first one to do something?
Fulfilling a lifetime dream?
Money relevant?
Popularity relevant?
To-do lists relevant?

Can a pepipo only be achieved by old people?
Through hard work?

is it possible to keep it like that, once achieved? would someone set out to deliberately achieve a pepipo, i.e. the likelihood of it happening can be affected or does it happen by chance? have you achieved a pepipo? daily? weekly? monthly? annually? once in a lifetime situation? does pepipo relate to a situation with a particuar object? with any object? with a group of objects? with another human? animal?

is it possible to keep it like that, once achieved? well yes, for a while, though not forever would someone set out to deliberately achieve a pepipo, i.e. the likelihood of it happening can be affected or does it happen by chance? most people try to achieve it i would think, still when it happens it sort of feels like it happened just by chance have you achieved a pepipo? i have daily? weekly? monthly? annually? not really any specific intervals here, but far too seldom, at least in my case once in a lifetime situation? not this, though does pepipo relate to a situation with a particuar object? this with any object? with a group of objects? with another human? animal?

the specific object the pepipo relates to...

Would it be found in the home? workplace?
Is it bigger than an apple? a football? a car?
Is it an electrical item?
Would most people own one? Own several?
Any other people relevant? Animals?

The reason it wouldn't last forever...

Because of erosion? death? Changes in weather? Changes in personal circumstances? Changes in standards over time? I.e. Would the situation still exist but no longer be classified as pepipo?

the specific object the pepipo relates to...

Would it be found in the home? yes workplace? less likely, but i suppose it depends on the workplace. Assume no
Is it bigger than an apple? a football? between these a car?
Is it an electrical item?
Would most people own one? yes Own several? that's highly likely
Any other people relevant? Animals? no

The reason it wouldn't last forever...

Because of erosion? no death? no, that would probably help keep it that way, but of course there would be no one there to enjoy it Changes in weather? no, weather irrelevant Changes in personal circumstances? depends on your definition of this, but no, probably not Changes in standards over time? I.e. Would the situation still exist but no longer be classified as pepipo? not this


shot in the dark as an afterthought - is this anything to do with photography? no

Well, that went a lot faster than I thought it would, but here goes....



*********SPOILER**********

A pepipo is indeed a perfect pillow position. When you're lying in bed at night before falling asleep, turning your pillow around and around to find the most comfortable position, it seems (to me at least) that you're just never able to find a position that's comfortable enough. On the rare occation, though, suddenly you achieve a pepipo, often resulting in you trying to keep completely still, afraid of losing it.

Thanks for playing, and well done Andy!
