Catch of the Day
"Red - with two grey hairs - even your HAIR is stubborn".
So back to cutting and highlighting trying to hide the grey in with the highlights. It's the hair stylist equivalent of juggling knives.
I went in this week for a hair cut and some more of those "natural highlights" which involve a transfer of cash similar to ransom, and an hour and a half with enough foil on my head to attract a number of conspiracy theory admirers.
I also went in without lunch or dinner due to the day I had at work.
I had a ladies magazine on my lap, while, with glasses off, as the beautiful genius that does my hair, finished up.
Did I mention that when I hit 50 I had to get "reading glasses"and anything a foot a way is a bit blurry?
There was a picture of soup in the magazine. I started to get really hungry It looked SO good and that bagel and apple and coffee at 6 a.m.were distant history. I think I drooled on the page. Someone mentioned that, looking perplexed when I said "I SO want a bowl of that." I couldn't wait until I was free of sculpting gel and a dryer to get home and make me some of that, the broth the succulent chicken, some shrimp,while I curled up with a glass of expensive white wine and Bach.
Then I put my glasses on.
I'd been drooling over cat food. Friskies Fancy Feast no less.
After that, I stopped McDonald's for a Filet O Fish and the liquor store for bottle of white wine, just grabbing one from their "pick of the week" display as I was tired. When I got home and tried to open it with the wine opener and I couldn't puncture the top I realized it was a twist off cap.
Filet O'Fish and McWine.
I learned my lesson about skipping meals. But maybe I should have just gone for the cat food.
