..because I’m totally and completely in need of something new to do. (besides pen inane messages on the internet.) Yes, I need a project, preferably one that I can complete in a reasonable amount of time with the least amount of work as possible. In the past, when I’ve gotten this urge, I have usually grabbed a paintbrush and painted a room in the house. I’m down to two rooms that have remained untouched, but painting a room holds no intrigue for me right now. Too much work.
So, I’ve been contemplating a personal transformation. Perhaps a haircut. At some point, I believe this desire for something new strikes almost every female. Yes, I do believe a haircut might be the answer. But I’m going to issue myself a warning: in the past, this particular desire has always fallen flat (both literally and figuratively.) You know the drill. You bring in the picture of the starlet whose coif you HAVE to have, and you fool your brain into thinking that if you only copy the hair, you will end up looking like the star whose hairstyle you emulate. This is almost never the case. The end result usually involves a follow-up appointment, tears, a $20 bottle of product to help with new style, and ultimately a do-it-yourself scissoring session that results in a vow to never set your sights so high again. (Until the next time you see a cute haircut in a magazine.)
Perhaps I will heed my own advice and forget the haircut.
