This morning I woke up with a raging headache. That does not happen very often. I think it is supposed to rain a little later today, so I don't know if it is related to weather, allergies, slept wrong....who knows. I took some Aleve, threw on my walking clothes, grabbed my hat to cover my crazy hair and hit the road at 5:30 a.m. to walk with Martha. Not very far into our walk my hat felt like it was squeezing my head like a vise. It hurt. Come on Aleve, do your thing! I ended up taking off my hat and carrying it in my hand.
For those of you who know me well, you know that my hair on a humid morning can only mean one thing....big fat giant mess. Without my hat to tamper it down, my hair grows by the minute on mornings like this. A big fuzzy, curling disaster.
Here is a recap of my conversation with Chip this morning on the way to school:
Chip: Mom, I hope your headache goes away and you feel better.
Me: Oh, thank you sweetheart. I do too. I was just sitting here thinking that I hope my hair doesn't scare any small children while I am dropping you off this morning.
Chip (with a smile): It might. I think if you spray paint your hair green you would look exactly like The Joker.
I just cracked up.
For those of you who don't watch Superhero movies, The Joker is one of the villains from Batman?
I am so thankful that I didn't have any eyeliner or lipstick on this morning because this image could be a little closer to reality than I can even stand.
Chip went on to thoughtfully help me pull together a Halloween costume for next year. He said "You can borrow Ms. Martha's purple pants and get a purple shirt, green hair paint and some lipstick and you have a great costume".
I need to call for a haircut appointment immediately.
Here's to a wonderful Thursday and I have high hopes that your hair is behaving better than mine is today!!!
