I got a hair cut and I do not like it.

I got a hair cut today and I do not like it.

The bangs

are chopped too high,

and hair that was once long

is now chopped short to become one with the bangs.

I know you feel sorry for me

but secretly you want to see the picture.

Here it is.


I'm working up

my nerve

to show you.

I really don't like it.

I know

it will grow out,

but in the meantime I will know

it looks ugly

every time I pass a mirror, storefront, back of a spoon, or see the reflection

in my neighbor's special tooth.

I know you want to see it.

I don't want you to.


This being

a free state and

July 4th only just passed, reconfirming our freedoms

(even though

I don't think

you seeing my ugly hair

counts as a freedom).

I got a hair cut today and I do not like it.

You are so cute. I got my bangs too short this time...hideous. But, at least it's summer, so you can wear a baseball cap!

Oh, come on, Danette! That haircut suits you perfectly! And it will make a swell author photo!

Danette, you are so hilarious! Thanks for the laugh. And for what it's worth, I think that bag looks splendid with your outfit.

You are so funny!!! But the hat's a little big, don't you think?

Sandy Nawrot said...

I am sure it looks adorable! The bag is pretty funny though...

Gurrrl, you so crazy! :)
I especially liked the part about your neighbor's special tooth!

Danette, You really made me laugh!!!! I was trying to get to your picture as quickly as possible to see what you look like and then I saw the picture with a big bag on your head lol

I hope to see you soon,

Sima xox

How is it possible that you look awe-dorable even with a bag over your head

Ah, we are our own worst critics. I'm sure you look lovely.

You are so funny. Having had my share of "oopsies" at the hairdresser's, I understand completely.

Awww! Well. I hope it grows out fast but I'm sure it isn't as bad as all that!

You know, it always looks terrific in the salon, and then you come home and wash it and it goes all limp. And the grapefruits fall out the bottom.
