These are the words my husband spoke several weeks ago. Are you excited for me? How cool is this? Well. Sit back down. It isn't quite what you think. First, let me tell you what prompted this exclamation.
His hair. Yeah. His hair. You see, T maintains a rather low profile, not-quite-a-yuppy, standard issue men's haircut. He doesn't highlight his tips, punk out the top, or use any hair product at all as a matter of fact. So, just what is he doing? He's growing it out. Nearly a month in and he is now sporting a few different looks:
(when he puffs it out--he thinks it looks "so cool")
(minus the shiny blue skintight pants)
I think he thinks I am embarrassed by his new look. He would take great pride in that. Nope. After nearly 12 years of marriage, he just gives me something else to laugh about.
He has developed the most annoying habit of combing his hair. First, he does it all the time. He doesn't do it because he cares about how he looks (I swear, he really doesn't--I kinda like that about him--a humble fella). He does it because it annoys me to no end. You see, he combs his hair the way other people mow their lawn. I can still see the comb lines. And worse yet, he'll do it over and over and over and over again. I've taken to hiding his wide-tooth combs. But, it is to no avail as he has just purchased a pack of 12.
So, back to the whole band thing.
I asked him why he decided to grow out his hair. "Dude," he replied rather smugly while combing his hair, "I'm getting the band back together." The band?
Well, if he is referring to his high school marching band where he played the trombone while marching on soggy fields during half time, well then, all the power to ya. Dream away . . .
Woo hoo! I have been tagged by Karen (AKA JakeandEllie'sMom) at I Invented Motherhood to do a book meme - she knew that as an English teacher I MUST be reading something. Try SIX somethings (and gettin' nowhere fast--my ADD is kicking in). I'm reading a book about how to help you child sleep better, a book about changing your thoughts and changing your life (by Dr. Wayne Dyer--I'm nowhere with that book, a personal finance book by Jean Chatzky (it was from the library and I found a dollar in it! I kid you not!), the memoir Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster, Eat This, Not That (very cool--lots of pictures), and an investing book.
Many of you have done this before, so this is nothing new--here are the rules:
- Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages.
- Open the book to page 123.
- Find the 5th sentence.
- Post the next 3 sentences.
- Tag 5 people.
*Hmmm...may need to read more.
Have you done this one yet? If not, consider yourself tagged!
