Are you a practical jokester?
Absolutely not. I think practical jokes — why are they called that anyhow? — are mean-spirited and often, cruel. I don’t like that kind of humor and don’t find it funny. I never did.
Who cuts your hair? You, a friend, or professional.
When my granddaughter remembers, she cuts it. Otherwise, it just keeps growing. Which I don’t mind. My hair looks better shorter, but it is much easier for me to maintain longer. This way, I can tie it back and when I am outside with my camera, I’m not fighting a constant battle to keep the hair out of my face. Or, for that matter, trying to keep it from covering the lens.
I love television advertisements with beautiful, very long-haired beauties driving in convertibles with their hair blowing free. Garry had a gorgeous bright orange Challenger convertible. To ride in it, I had to first braid my hair, then wrap it in a tight scarf. I also had to cover my easily burned skin because you don’t feel the heat of the sun in a convertible, but it find you anyway. I got some of my worst sun burns in Garry’s convertibles (he had three over the years). Finally, one day I gave him a simple ultimatum. Get a car with a roof or I’m cutting my hair. Pixie style.
He got a roof.
If those long-haired beauties were really riding in the convertible with that 2-foot long hair blowing in the wind? It would take three hairdressers several days to carefully pick the pixie knots out of her hair. And it would hurt.
When my hair was really long, I couldn’t leave it loose almost ever. I had to braid it at night and let the braid hang off the edge of the bed so I wouldn’t roll over on it and get my head stuck with my hair under my back. Long hair — very long hair — can get complicated. But medium longish hair, like mine? Easy peasy. Tie it in a Scrunci and life is good.
Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?
No stuffed animals. Many dolls, though.
And real live dogs and cats which served the role very well.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Creating a few of my own filter effects made me feel really good … and the post Gretchen Archer posted on Facebook made me feel downright wonderful.
