It has been a rough month. If only I could wipe February off the calendar this year.
There were a few good things that happened though.
The most difficult thing that happened this month was burying my MIL who fought death and wasn’t ready to go.
That was followed by the break up of my daughter Angel with her boyfriend of 3 years, Mitch.
Let’s just say I would rather think about the possibility of planning a wedding instead of a funeral…
It wasn’t in the cards I guess.
Talking about cards… Guess who got carded??
There is someone living out there that thinks I could possibly be under 21.
I went to the grocery store and bought a 6 pack of Madtown Nut Brown Ale. Great beer, by the way. The lady looked at my driver’s license which clearly stated 1974 and glanced at my face several times. I am hoping that she couldn’t believe I looked so young for my age versus she was visually impaired in some way.
Just for a quick comparison…the picture on the left was taken a few days after I turned 21. I remember the night well.
After sipping (not slipping) on mudslides, I decided to highlight my own hair.
Great! Now I’m thinking of songs…slip sliding in the rain…singing in the rain…what a glorious…anyway, back to my hair…
Highlighting my hair was a royal pain. Come to think of it, I don’t know of anyone else that did it besides hairdressers with their own hair.
Highlighting…I remember putting what was like a swimming cap on my head. Then I had to pull through small strands of hair out of tiny holes in the cap with what looked like a knitting needle.
I would not be considered a person that has a lot of patience to sit down and do crafts like knitting.
In fact, the only crafts I like is craft beer.
So, I said screw it, pulled the cap off, and highlighted all of my hair. Kind of gave me the grunge Kurt Cobain hair that was so wicked in the 90’s anyway. Who says that anymore?? That is so wicked.
The picture on the right was taken after I turned 21 for the second time.
I don’t look a day older from picture to picture, right??
Okay, maybe a couple of years**cough**cough**decades..
Forever 21?? Ah, who am I kidding??
It was fun while it lasted though…I chuckled in wicked mad laughter at the thought as I sipped my Madtown Nut Brown…slipped down…sliding…singing in the rain..Great!
