I've been feeling restless. Dissatisfied. Bored.
So I cheated.
Yep, I stepped out on my old love. And the new relationship makes me feel young and vibrant. Hip and alive! I'm shimmering with golden delight!
Then why do I feel so guilty?
I've cheated on my hairdresser.
My hairdresser, whom I've been faithful to for years now, just hasn't been doing much for me lately. I've been unhappy with my color, annoyed with my last few haircuts, and found faults where I used to see perfection in my service. The relationship had grown stale.
So when I was presented with at "$15.00 off a hair color service" coupon for a new salon in town, my heart skipped a beat. Could this be my chance to see what was out there? Maybe I'd missed out on the glamorous life other people had and I just didn't know it! I'd have to sneak around.
I made the appointment and went in. I was highlighted, lowlighted, trimmed and shaped! How I'd neglected my own needs as my old relationship waned. Hope that this was The One bloomed in my heart. Then I was spun around to look in the mirror.
Wow! Amazing! Miraculous!
Oh. I look exactly the same as I did with my old hairdresser: A highlighted forty-something lady trying to look hip. With the same issues with the back of my hair as before. Can't anybody get it right?
Well, I don't think this affair will last. It was probably just a one-time thing. But I can't help but wonder if someone else might be able to give me some satisfaction. Maybe I'll find hair-love on the sly. If I can get over the guilt.
Link up for coffee, ladies! I was a bad girl and didn't get around last week because of the Big Anniversary party. And this weekend I will be at our Women's Retreat, so I don't think I'll be by to visit until after Sunday. But don't let that stop you from having fun!
