This past Saturday I took Annie to Rite Aid drugstore and spent $14 on a hair color highlights kit. I colored her hair myself. It was the first time I ever did hair color on my own and it looked great! It took a long time to pull her hair through the cap and sometimes I stabbed her in the ear with the little crochet hook/hair grabber thing but all in all, a very successful first time hair highlighting effort.
Today I spent $120 on a foil to have my hair highlighted before I leave for the Big Apple on Thursday. I only get my hair colored two or three times a year so the cost isn’t so bad. You know what was bad? Sitting for two hours listening to my hair stylist prattle on like a moron.
I have a stack of US Weeklys in my lap. SHE should not be talking.
I am looking down and reading a very important article about Taylor Swift and why she is such a bunny boiling loser with men. SHE (the hairdresser, not Taylor Swift, although I don’t want to deal with Taylor either) should not be talking.
I tell her we have a new kitten. SHE tells me she wants a kitten that costs $1000. SHE is an idiot.
I tell her about my trip to NYC. We have both stayed at The Hudson before. I tell her I thought the rooms were extraordinarily small. SHE tells me her boyfriend was arrested for buying drugs in Washington Square Park.
SHE asks me what I’m doing during my visit to NYC. I tell her I would like to see the 9/11 Memorial and SHE says….
SHE SAYS (she is 43 years old).
SHE SAYS: “I remember when that happened.”
She remembers when September 11, 2001 happened! Although she wasn’t totally sure on the 2001 part. She also told me that what is really hard for New Yorkers about the two World Trade Center towers imploding and tumbling to the ground after being hit by two 747s full of innocent people and taking 1000s of people down with them is that now people don’t know which direction to look to see the Hudson River.
I know what the look on my face was as she was speaking and now I need Botox.
I told her she needed to hurry up and dry my hair because I needed to get back to work to write a post about how inane her conversation skills are.
A box of $14 hair color is looking really good right now.
