It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Our beloved caboodles. Where else would we possibly have kept our chokers, butterfly pins and bright pink scrunchies?  It’s hard to find something that says ’90s more than these plastic makeup cases that have built-in mirrors and extendable compartments.  The only thing that could possibly make this case more nostalgic would be selling it in Limited Too.  Remember that store?


Caboodles in honor of their 30th anniversary has released a special line of it’s cosmetic cases and they are now on the shelves of Urban Outfitters in their finest pastel, tri-toned form.  The new cases come in three different colors, all of which are as retro as ever and provide tons of space for keeping all of your accessories and makeup.



And believe it or not, co-host of the game show Wheel Of Fortune, Vanna White was the one to inspire the invention of these adored cases.  She was seen in 1986 using a fishing box to store her makeup, which sparked the idea to create the caboodle.  The company Plano decided to tackle this idea and invented the much, much, much prettier but just as functional, Caboodles.
