I put a fair bit of value on having good hair. Mine is naturally curly, and I pretty much learned how to make it look nice at the young age of 32. Ever since then, I stopped wearing baseball caps, pony tails, banana clips, you name it. Now I always make an effort to leave the house with good hair. (although I would still like to bring back the banana clip if I could only find a good supply of them)
As of this year, I have become a pool owner. Leading up to the completion of the pool, I was actually giving thought to the hair issue. I wasn't sure if I was going to still style my hair each morning given the likelihood of my hair coming 'un-done' in the water. And what if I needed to zip out after a morning swim, but prior to an afternoon swim? Would I fix my hair in between? Would I always be able to predict when I'd be going swimming? Good hair vs. carefree swimming; quite the conundrum, dontcha think?
This past week-end was the inaugural swim-fest at my house. It was a long week-end, so my family spent the better part of three amazing days turning into prunes while we enjoyed the new addition to our yard. But there were some points in time when I had to step out. There were people to feed and shopping to be done.
So did Stacy and Clinton's ten years of training stick?
NO! I didn't even swim today and I was at the grocery store in a baseball cap and minimal make-up. Worse yet, over the week-end when I had guests here, I was all mu-mu and big floppy hat.
So that's my look now. I'm either a frumpy 12 year old boy, or if you catch me at home, Mrs. Roper.
