Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

Youth and Obesity…It’s all in the hair?

My hair is longer than it has been in at least a decade. After cheating on my stylist the last time I ventured out for a shearing, I haven’t had the desire to walk into a salon. I’ve been fooling myself (an easy task) by having a little internal discussion proclaiming longer hair in the summer when I’m in and out of the pool is so much easier and requires less fussing than short hair.

It’s not all fun and pony tails though. You know how you start to go a little batty when you try to grow your hair out? You get to a point when you’re not sure you can stand the awkward length for one more second. You start asking yourself why the heck your tresses should be long when it just means you constantly wear those silky locks in an up do. Wouldn’t it just be easier to hack it all off again?

Unsure of which little inside voice to follow, I made the mistake of asking my husband for his opinion.

“Well,” he started with a smirk. “When your hair is long it makes your face look thinner and when your hair is short you always look so young.”

What am I supposed to do with that? Now I’m contemplating growing it down to my butt to see if it makes my hips look thinner, or shaving it off entirely to see if I’ll start getting carded again.
