So for those of you who are new to my stories, Jeiney is my BFF. (That’s not really her name, but I’m old and I never can remember who tells me what so I have put all my besties names into one to form this name for story purposes…it serves us all better!)
Three days ago, I got my haircut by a man who Jeiney recommended. Now Jeiney is VERY particular about who cuts her hair (as she should be because she is a STUNNAH, and would like to keep it that way), so this new hair stylist was coming highly recommended.
As promised, I mentioned on Facebook I would tell you about this hairdresser. He is a slight man. I could bench press him if I were into that sort of thing and he has very long pretty fingers finished with beautifully manicured long fingernails. Coming from a Theatre background and love artsy/creative people I was drawn to him and was sure Jeiney had found a keeper! But get this…he used the LONGEST pair of haircutting scissors I have EVAH seen outside of the Edward Scissorhands movie. Really. He wasn’t using blades and they weren’t attached to his fingers and they weren’t IN PLACE of his fingers, but they were some long skinny scissor and they moved very fast and precisely. I was mesmerized.
Plus, he had these great stories about his life (which I won’t share) because I am no fool and do not want this gem to drop me from his clientele list! By the end of the appointment, and with the beautiful hair cut he produced, I just wanted to feed him cake.
So immediately after the artistry took place, I knocked on Jeiney’s back door and we screamed about how great the haircut was, yada, yada, yada… then she insisted on giving me some hair product lessons. Yes, this gurl knows her some products!! Never to disappoint in the product department!!
So we set up the toddler with the “PBS babysitter,” a new hollow chocolate bunny and start my lesson on how to style my new do. I’m sure it wasn’t that long we were not paying attention to the toddler, but let’s just say the bunny was nearly ingested with the exception of what was smeared ALL OVER HER ENTIRE FACE, HANDS AND TORSO!!!
We of course being the fun moms we were started laughing and directing the child to the kitchen where we noticed it. YES, IT!! Duh, duh, dunnah…. (that was me singing)
The senile dog (for those of you tenderhearted dog lovers, insert an “Ahhhh” here) had decided to land a humongous turd the size of a small toddler in the doorway to the room. I apologize for not stopping my laughter to take a photo and picmonkey it up for you all.
Jeiney exclaimed, “WELCOME TO MY WORLD!” And Boy, I knew what she meant. I had been there. I understood. We all do! So we picked up the chocolate covered child, closed the door to the room of stench and waltzed into the kitchen to have coffee.
Some days it’s just best to leave your stress behind and enjoy the present moment with friends!
(We did clean the chocolate off the kid. But I left before the poop was removed from her hardwoods being the sensitive friend that I am!)
Do you have a person who you wouldn’t trade for the world? I want to hear about your secret beauty loves!!
