Jessica- what do you want to do today.
Me- I am radical. I turn 43 today and it will never get more appropriate to do something wild with my hair so lets do it... blonde highlights.
Jessica- Are you sure?
So.... 2 hours later I walk out and look in the mirror and think you know.. maybe a tattoo would have been a better way to show my rebellion for my lifestyle stress lately. Atleast then I could put it on my butt or someplace that on one else has to look at.
It looks kinda "skunkish..."
I walk in the house. None of the kids even notice it, or atleast they had the manners not to say anything.
Debbie- Well, Randy, what do you think?
Randy- Well....... uh.... it is... nice.
Debbie- You are LYING.
So, I lived with it for a day. I made it BIG.I made it small. I made it short.I made it tall. ( that was for you Dana.)
Tonight , I came out of the grocery store with it pouring down rain. It looked pretty trashy by the time I got home. I know, I dont get stuck in the rain much but in Randy's church they throw water..... what if I get caught in the line of water flinging off palm branches and have to leave church looking like I an in the next edition of Jerry Springer?
So, I have already spent the first two days of my forty- third year of my life looking like two totally different people. For a brief second I thought how cool it would be to have an alter personality. Then , when people make me mad, I could be rude. I could say no, I dont have time. I have to go watch Nascar... or something...
But instead, I will continue to say " yes , I will". I will continue to wear my hair the same way I have for years. I will be the old faithful Debbie, ready to give everyone exactly what they expect including my hair style and hair color...
( I am seriously thinking about that butt tattoo though.. I could totally carry that off. If I didnt have to show someone else my butt, that might be an option. Hmm.. I probably couldn't even do that. I would feel guilty and sad for the tatooer . Maybe I will just get a few of those temporary tattoos that you get wet and stick on and wear off with a few baths. I think I will get spider man or something. Boy, I am a rebel. I am excited . I will get one while in Mississippi this weekend, I bet they have good tattoo vending machines. )
