Hair today ....

Last weekend, Jack & I had a wedding to attend.
On the day of the wedding, his niece came over to do his Mothers and his daughters hair.
I hadn't made an appointment for mine as I feel very capable of doing it myself.
However, Jack's Mother would have none of that.
So, I sat and she did my hair.
It was awful.
Bless her little heart ....
She's sweet as can be and puts forth all her effort.
Believe me, I appreciated her hard work.
My hair is a bitch and a half to style.
It's unbelievably long (down to my waist), it's thick, naturally curly and it frizzes.
My hair frustrates MY hairdresser and i've been seeing her for 20+ years!

Anyway, as she was styling me, she asked if she could come back on Sunday and just give me a trim.
I agreed because I knew my ends needed a good 2"-3" off.
Sunday at around 5, there was a knock on the door.
It was Jack's niece.
She had arrived to trim me up.

I wet my hair down and she got down to business.
As i'm sitting there hearing the snip snip, it dawns on me that I haven't seen any of the hair that's been cut.
But in my heart, I knew.
She had NOT followed our agreement of 3" MAX taken off.
Jack's daughter walking in confirmed my suspicions.
Her eyes were wide with horror.

When she finished, I stepped away to the bathroom to see what had become of my lovely mane.
I looked in the mirror and burst into tears.
My hair was GONE.
My waist length hair is now barely touching my shoulders.

I have been distraught ever since.
I know it's silly ...
I know there's nothing I can do about it ....
I know it'll grow back .....
But right now?
I'm sad and angry.
I feel naked and exposed.
I feel OLD.
I don't feel pretty.
(ok, i never feel pretty .... but that's a whole other post)

I don't feel like ME.

YIKES!! You know what? I think really long or really short hair makes us look older, but your hair is my length and I think it's really nice. I mean it. HOWEVER, that doesn't matter because it's not what you expected, wanted or even asked for, so I'm sorry.

It will grow back (of course) but still. We all have hair horror stories, but it's not fun when your SO's Mother does it to you. I hope you didn't tip her! bwahahahah. No, too soon for jokes? OK.

PNWBoxerGal: Like I said, I knew it needed a trim. I was prepared for middle of my back length.
Shoulders? No.
I freaked.
I'm still freaking .... and it's RIDICULOUS to do so!
*sigh* it'll grow ....

Morningtar: Jack is sad too ... but there's still enough for him to grab so he doesn't mind so much. ;D

I have always had issues with people cutting my hair.
I say trim and i get scalped.
I don't know if people are deaf or stupid.
What really gets my goat is that they think they know what you want even though its not what you ask for.
Hair grows back but it's not instantaneous.
I say take her out for drink, get her drunk and shave her head then crazy glue the hair you removed under her armpits.

I cut my hair off once, and the shit pulled a cruel joke on me and NEVER GREW BACK !!

I wouldn't have cared if it was Jesus F'ng Christ with scissors from Heaven above...NOBODY F*CKS WITH MY CURLS!!!

Not only would the crazy old bat that does my hair have a complete conniption fit, ( if my hair looks bad, it's somehow a reflection on her...so it had better be PERFECT), but would prolly pickle my penis, baste it in ass...burst it to flames, call me a LASS!! (she's very possessive)

Think I'm kid'n? I'm tell'n ya', she NUTS...makes me look sane.

Anyway, I'm totally with you on everything sans the bursting with tears stuff...HELLO, I'm a BOY!!!

Cheer up...your hair does look nice! Maybe not what YOU want, but, for what it's worth, if I were straight, I'd throw ya' a bone... (I know, I know, straight boys will screw anything...including the pooch (or is that gay boys?). Whatever... the sentiment is out there).

Heff: It'll grow back ... I have enough hair for a few people!

BamaTrav: You'll have to troll through my archives; I can't be arsed to do it!

Rafa: Pickle your penis, baste it in ass...burst it to flames, call you a LASS?
YIKES! That's a wee harsh! lol

Does it make any difference that one of my therapists told me I craved a twig-n-berries of my own?
I mean, that's ALMOST a boy, yes???

I'll just take the bone(r).

You made me laugh Rafa ... thank you dollface!

SQUEEZE ME...? Twig -n-berries? Sounds more like the poo balls dangl'n from my curlies than the fruit of my loins poke'n from my unders.

Sorry, but a nub'n is a nub'n, no matter the rub'n (or even the grub'n). A nub'n can't rise, no matter the occasion. A nub'n can't spout with the greatest of ease. A nub'n is a nub'n, God did some flub'n 'cause there just ain't no sub'n for a man's thickened lub'n

Fingers can dance
Inch inside of your pants
But push comes to shove
With lights from above
What is it you want...?
What's your desire...?

Rub a dub dub
A MAN in your TUB!!



P.S. Typical girl, take, take, take...but what do you give back...nub'n!!!

Rafa: My dear, you cut me to the quick!
I never just take, take, take.
I am very fond of "a man's thickened lub'n" ... and I make sure he gets his own share of quality luv'n!
In fact, you can read my
love and adorationof what that pokes from your unders!

Oh, and yes, I would ADORE a man in my tub!
But not just ANY man ... do I get to chose my man and his lub'n?! ;D

Poo balls danglin' from my curlies indeed!

Now, now, Blaz'n, how 'bout you get your panties out of a wad and I'll promise to not tease you for your lack of a twig-n-berries. Not my fault you inferred "nub'n" to equal "nothing". Though, I must agree, compared to a thicken'd lub'n, a nub'n ain't much; if nothing at all... HaHa!!! (sorry, it's just a funny play on words, that gives me the giggles...no offense is meant).


P.S. that's a very nice ode to what pokes from a man's unders...thanks for the link!

P.S.S. Any man with a penchant for tuna and willing to fish for his dinner, is YOURS!

Good evening BlazngScarlet,

The idea that someone would take the liberty of deciding how your hair should look and cut it that way without your permission, is beyond me. That you have not cut those involved a new asshole, tells me that you have a level head. Although I do believe you should find some fitting way of achieving retribution. Perhaps a night out of heavy drinking and interaction with a set of clippers set on crew cut, might achieve the desired effect.

If it's any consolation, I think you look nice. And when time allows, I may research your archives. I don't know if you have any organizations where you're at, but when Mrs. K cut her hair (it went from her butt to above her shoulder), she donated it to an outfit that makes wigs for cancer patients. If you still have access to the hair, you would be a nice way to use it.
