Hair - the long and short of it

I made an appointment to have my hair cut and coloured a couple weeks ago.  The appointment was to be for this coming Sunday and since my hair has been driving me just a tad (okay so a lot) crazy lately, the need was getting to the necessary point.

When my hair gets to about mid back, it does this strange morphing thing where it suddenly decides it has tons of body and wave.  Which, in my opinion just makes me look like I've stuck my finger in a live light socket and took it out about half way to an Annie afro.

So today, I take a snapshot that was supposed to be my "before" picture.  You all know the one it's the "Look at how horrible I looked before!"  Then you take the "after" photo and say "Look how much better I look now!"

Then I got that fateful call.  The stylist cancelled.  My first response is, of course "What the fuck!"  Then I breathe and calmly walk over to the drawer where the scissors reside, open the drawer and look longingly at the sharp blades that could so easily reduce my tangled locks into something oh so much more manageable.

Some unseen force smacks me on the back of the head and tells me to shut the drawer.  I listen.

Whew, that was a close one!  Manageable does not necessarily equal likable!

Unfortunately, I have to stick with looking like I belong in a nudist colony until I can make another appointment.

To anyone who knew me back in 1994 or has heard rumors of things past - you are not allowed to comment on the previous sentence.

And so I continue to be tormented by the scissors in the drawer and the words of affection my stringy, long curls are whispering to them.  They long to be together, but it would be such a short relationship; I think I'll keep them apart to prevent the heartbreak both would surely have to endure.

Yes, I need some sleep.  Even I can see that.  I always wax poetic when I'm a little overdue for some zzz's.  Bad poetic, at that!

So I do sincerely apologize for your bleeding eyes from the pain of reading this.  Yet, I do not go back and delete it. It belongs to my mild self-professed insanity and so it shall stay.

As a consolation, I shall give you this...

Until Next Time,


  1. Your hair is beautiful.

  2. Aw, thank you Darlene! I still plan to cut it when I can reschedule my appointment again though. Just a few inches need to come off and it will be manageable again.
