Holy Bad Word!!

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Who here has seen the movie Little Women? The '90s version with Winona Ryder and Kirsten Dunst. Okay, so do you remember the scene where Jo and Meg are getting ready to go out for a party? And Jo is curling Meg's hair and then everyone starts smelling something funky? And Amy says, "It smells like burnt feathers." And then Jo starts going "Wah! Wah!" as she realizes she's just burned off a chunk of Meg's hair? Remember that? Made you laugh, right?

Cut to 2009. Wife and husband in hotel room in Chicago. Wife is blow drying her hair in sections with a round brush (which she never does because...who has the time?). And all of the sudden they both start smelling something funky. And wife says, "It smells like burnt..." She looks down at her brush and there is a HUGE chunk of hair at least 2 inches long seared into the brush, along with dozens of melted bristles. Didn't make me laugh.

"Holy bad word!"

Somehow my hair dryer wigged out and overheated, I guess, and yes...burned off a noticeable chunk of my hair. Burnt hair in the sink, burnt hair on the floor, burnt hair in the brush, burnt hair everywhere!

Luckily, I was in the middle of my head, so it's covered by the top layer but I will definitely have some 'splainin' to do next time I get my hair done....
