I got a new haircut recently. This may not seem blog worthy – especially for someone who’s blog posts are as limited and sporadic as mine seem to be these
I’ve got 2 reasons.
- I now have bangs. I have never had bangs before. Never. I always thought my face was far to round for bangs. That and I do not have a fivehead, that is a forehead that is large enough to REQUIRE bangs. Turns out the round face is not an issue. And so I mention it because I have had this conversation with fellow round-facers who have reacted with “ME TOO!!” when I have said “I’ve never had bangs because my face is too round” They’ve all be very surprised I was able to pull it off. As was I. So as a public service announcement to all the round-facers of the world – I’m letting you know – I have bangs
- The Boy’s reaction. Let’s face it – we all know that when the Boy says something entertaining it needs to be documented.
I picked him up from work with my fresh new haircut. He got in the car (knowing full well that I needed the car that day so that I could get my haircut)
Boy – “It’s SHORT!”
Me – “Not really.”
Boy – “It’s different. It’s really different. What’sgoingon? It’sreallydifferent. Isitshorter?It’snotshorter? It’snice.It’sreallydifferent.Whatisit?” (his short outside voice questions got quicker and quicker as he tried to process what this GREAT change was he was looking at)
Me – “it’s bangs”
Boy – “It’s BANGS!!!”
Me – Yes.
Boy – You’ve never had bangs!
Me – I know.
Boy – Like never.
Me – Nope. Never.
Boy – BANGS!
Me – Okay, we’ve established it’s bangs – what do you think.
Boy – It’s different!
Me – Is that a Boy code for I don’t like it/think it’s weird but I’m being polite kind of different? (this is a real thing for the Boy FYI)
Boy – No. It’s just really different.
He then proceeded to stare at me while I was driving us home.
Boy – I like it. It looks good.
Another long pause while he processed this drastic change I’d brought to our lives.
Boy – You look like you belong on TV!
Nice save buddy.
