Hello my quiet readers. I need you. This is very important. Please take the time to comment and give me your sincere and honest opinion. About my hair.
I am guessing that many if not most of you (women) have never worn your hair as short as I do. I didn't always have short brown hair. Oh no. I used to have a shoulder length-flat-ironed-dyed-blond-do. But that was before munchkins. Shortly after Zachary's arrival I went to the short cut I am still sporting five years later. I even stopped coloring my hair and went with my natural brown, which seems to darken every year. I used to get tons of compliments on my haircut. People would marvel at me for having the courage to go so short. It felt good.
Recently however, inspired by my younger sister who finally grew out the hair style that I copied in the first place, I decided I needed a change. Only I don't seem to have the patience to actually grow out all of my hair. It is a pretty painful process, one that involves months and months of "awkward" stages. I simply could not manage it. So I decided to take what might appear to be a small step, and grow my bangs out. Even this has proved to be trying. In addition to growing my bangs I got some highlights to "brighten up" my look. I'm not quite there yet. I want to grow these pesky bangs a bit more, but I'm just not sure this is going anywhere. I am no longer receiving compliments on my hair. Tragedy, especially now that ain't nobody going to be complimenting me on my awesome figure!
This is where you come in, dear reader. I am counting on you to tell me what to do. Above is my how I look today. Below was earlier this fall. What look do you prefer? Be honest. This is critical. We are talking about my hair here, my look.
In other totally unrelated news, did you know that men actually go nude in the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco? I'm talking nothing but a pair of flip-flops and a smile naked. I kid you not. We made a stop in the area this afternoon after a visit to Golden Gate Park. We wanted to explore a new area and grab the kids some ice cream. Now don't get me wrong I am all for diversity. But public nudity? Is that even legal? I'm not sure I am ready to stand behind a naked man, no matter how buff, at Starbucks, and I really don't want to sit on the same public chair he was using five minutes ago. Small minded? Perhaps-but I'm okay with that.
