Oops. You could bring back the pirate look, though.

I think I'm going to have to revive it.

Y'know, I never thought I was all that attached to my hair but I was pretty darn upset once I had my glasses on and could actually see how short it was. If you're wondering, I think the hairdresser had me confused with another client, one who keeps her hair even shorter than I do. And multiple things went wrong: she asked about my friend with cancer and how she was doing, but I know four people who have had cancer and couldn't figure out which one I might have spoken about during a haircut. Not only was it unlikely that I would have referred to anyone by name, but I couldn't figure out what to ask to narrow it down to a specific person without revealing too much about anyone's private business and without admitting how truly awful my memory has become, so I gave a vague reply. Then she said she remembered she'd used a different size attachment on her electric razor than what's written down in my file and said she assumed I'd want the same one this time. Well, I have changed razor sizes -- I went from either a 4 to 6 or a 6 to a 4, and I did want the one she'd used last time -- so that didn't clue me in that something was wrong. Then, when she made her first cut she asked me if it looked right -- only I didn't have my glasses on and couldn't see myself in the mirror. So I gave her a non-committal answer ("I think so?") and she went on and cut off the rest. When I saw how short it was I pretty much blamed myself for not asking more questions or asking to put on my glasses after the first cut, so I paid my bill, gave her a decent tip, and went to the car to call Jebra and tell him I needed a hug.

OMG, what a mess! I'm sorry. I'm sure it was a shock when you first saw it.

The cut took about twice as long as usual, so I had a hunch it was going to be shorter -- but I wasn't prepared for the reality. I just hope the dismay I felt wasn't written all over my face.

That must have been a heck of a misunderstanding!

Oh yeah. I was thinking about this on the way home from work tonight and it reminded me of another crazy thing that happened long ago. Once upon a time I lived in a small apartment with my college boyfriend. At the time I had a color tv that had something wrong with its circuitry and it emitted an incredibly painful high-pitched whine when it got warm. It didn't seem to bother my boyfriend as much as it did me, but then he was quite different from me and he spent a good amount of his free time drinking. He was an alcoholic, so the drinking was pretty much a constant thing, limited only by our poor finances. One solution he came up with was to try making wine from frozen grape concentrate and brewer's yeast. One night I remarked that "the whine seems much better tonight." He was incredulous and insisted it was worse than ever. We exchanged a bunch more words before we realized I was talking about the tv's whine and he was talking about his wine.

HA! Sounds like some conversations I had in college. (grin)
