I like to think that I have a thick skin. I've been around long enough not to let the little things bother me. Grain of salt and all that jazz. Maybe it's not insecurities as much as it is being out of touch with the world. I mean we haven't had cable/satellite since September 2010. I just may have forgotten how the world works or it changed while I didn't have access to real TV.
I have not had short hair since high school. That was a VERY long time ago. In fact, I have just about the same hair cut that I had in high school. I really hope that I don't revert and get my ass back into trouble.
When I was young, I had very straight hair. Hence, I had to perm and tease the hell out of it. It was the 80's, that was my only excuse. For some reason, having kids made my hair curly. VERY CURLY. The hair dresser said that usually people that have curly hair notice their hair goes straight after kids, not the other way around. I will never be normal.
My hair is curling so bad it is stuck to my head. Brushing makes it worse. My dear friend offered to straighten my pubes for me.
I talked to Anna and she said and I quote, "Mom, some guy paid me $100 to give him a ride." Hmmmmmm, that just didn't sound right. All I could feel was that I failed as a parent. I nicely asked her to explain as soon as my heart started beating again. She said that some drunk guy walked up to her and said he would give her $100. She knows just what to say to make everything better. He said that he wasn't from that area and he had to get somewhere and needed a ride. Right! And having a drunk stranger in the car didn't make me feel any better either. Once again, I was feeling as if I taught her NOTHING! She said that the only way that she would give him a ride was if she could bring a few of her guy friends with. He said, of course. She gave him a ride with a couple of the guy friends and told him to keep the money. He said, no you have no idea how much of a jam I was in. He tossed the money on the seat and left.
I will be posting about my daughter the prostitute/my nether region hair at a later date.Smile,
