I Opted For Distraction

This morning my hair was fighting mad! Mr. Husband said I looked like 'The Heat Mizer,' from an old, but popular Christmas cartoon.

At 5:30 a.m., I was planning, plotting and pondering what to do, with this stuff on my head called hair. It's Homecoming week on campus, I could get away with a ball cap, and polo shirt, both with the school's mascot.

After taking my son to school, something finally came to me. I could either dress to accent my hair, or dress to distract attention away from it. But how was I to do either?! Time was running out, it was 20 minutes and counting before I had to leave for work.

On a whim I thought about calling in sick. I couldn't do that either. Tonight is Coronation, and my daughter is singing the 'National Anthem.' I can't show up on campus later, after being "sick," all day.

Dashing into the closet like Super Man, into a phone booth, I emerged dressed to distract. I put on slacks, a nice dressy sweater, and boots. I curled my hair, as much as two minutes would allow, making sure crucial sections were curled. I was out the door and headed to work, on time.

This trying to grow my hair out is For.The.Birds! I don't know why I agreed to it! As soon as my stylist can fit me in, it's back to my pixie do.

I know you didn't think I'd actually post a picture of my hair now did you?! HA!

I wouldn't mind a Super Man closet myself for those bad hair days and days when I simply cannot put together a co-ordinating outfit! I am having my (long-ish) hair tidied up tomorrow; it has been a long time since my last haircut, and when it starts looking like a mop ... yep, time to do something about it.

I was begged to work the day after returning from the beach once. My hair looked a hot mess and I dressed like another one. There was nothing I could do to make it better.

Hola La'Tonya

I'm impressed that you have a super man closet...I must invest lol.

Now as a rip raving hair junkie myself I understand your pain. Hair takes up a lot of my morning. It's my vain obsession. If my hair doesn't look a certain way my day is destined to go ape shit on me. This is not a lie.

Right now I am in the growing back process which is very very aggravating. Of course I must pull it out and have posted pics of myself with my long hair as motivation to stay the course. Hang in there sis you're not alone.

Sorry, I can't help but laugh at "fighting mad" hair! Sounds like my hair story everyday of my life.

Hugs and Mocha,
