So one of my patients looks at me the other day and says, "You know...I love long hair on a woman."
It was a wildly inappropriate thing to say, yes, but it's not a narrowly held sentiment. In fact, part of the reason I grew my hair back out to its current almost-at-my-waist length is because a guy I was kind of dating when I had short hair saw old pictures of me and said, "Damn, that hair is hot as hell." And, you know, I like it better this way, too.
But here's the thing - it's not all Pantene Roses and Redken Dreams.
A, it gets tangled up in everything. Two, I shed like a fiend, and it's a lot more noticeable. But, three...you will not believe what came out of my shower drain tonight.
And on a related note, it's time I got a man.
Not that I wasn't wildly successful at unclogging my shower drain tonight with a makeshift coat-hanger-turned-pipe-snake-hair-puller-outer-thingy. There's no longer four inches of standing water at the end of my shower. I won't be constantly slipping on the conditioner residue for at least the next couple of months. But I would greatly have appreciated being able to twirl my long auburn locks around my finger and say, "Honeeeeey...."
Oh, who am I kidding. Any man attached to me would've been handing me the pliers.
