Ever been in one of those impulse kinda moods where you have to do something right now?! I'm discovering that the older I get, the more I'm doing impulse things, which totally goes against every fiber of my being. I am definitely an "A" type personality, plan well in advance, make lists of lists, and I think we've all deducted that I'm a control-freak perfectionist.

A week ago I finally had a day off and had dealt with bad hair days far too long! So, I got out of the shower and thought to myself "this is it! I'm going right now, wet head and all, to get my hair cut!" So I ventured into one of those walk-in places. My first clue should have been that I was the only one there. My second clue should have been that the lady (and I use that term loosely) was slurring her words. So, I show her the picture I've been carrying around forever of Lisa Rinna's long shag, and she says "sure! I can cut it!"

Okay, so I sit in her chair, lay the picture out on her countertop, and away she goes. As I see big chunks of hair falling to the ground, I notice that she keeps stopping and examining the picture and then starts cutting again. The more she talks, the more I can smell alcohol on her breath as she proceeds to tell me that she wasn't supposed to come in until 3:00 p.m. that afternoon and the morning person didn't show up, so the manager called her to come open...blah, blah, blah. At this point I realize that when the manager called her, it must have cut her partying short and here I sit...the victim of a Cutting While Intoxicated! Hello!? Where is the Beautician's patrol or board, or whomever they answer to, when you need them?! I proceed to tell her that I think it's fine, and that's good enough... anything to get Edwina Scissorhands to STOP cutting! She goes on to tell me that she has to "even up" this one side.

Finally, she's done and I'm free to pay my $14.95 and go! I get home and try to blow dry it and realize I have no hair! Gary's comment when he got home was "what on earth did you do?"... Zack came home from school and said, "Mom, what is wrong with you? First you color your hair red, now this?!"

Oh well...it's only hair and it will grow back, right? Only one thing I've got to say, "Move over Joan Jett! You ain't got nothing on me!

3 sweet friends had to say...:

Ok where is a picture??? I'm dying! Because I have been soooo close to doing the same thing. I'm in the growing-out stage and I look hideous! But I won't go to a walk-in place because as soon as I see what the hair stylists look like, I beeline for the door. If their hair looks bad, what will they do to yours?!?!
