One of the many joys of being a single father to girl, especially one that is heading into her teenage years and where her appearance matters to her more and more, is that I get to share all my beauty tips. Kidding of course, but one thing I do tackle is dying Kay-lyn’s hair.
Yes, I dye her hair. I’m picturing a surprised look on most of my readers face right about now.
Well, a while back, I had a friend show me how it was done, figured it didn’t look too hard, and thought I’d give it a try. I have probably dyed her hair five or six times, and while I like to do this for my daughter and it saves me money, I must say it is very tedious. And also very messy. Well, when I do it, it is. I haven’t quite mastered it yet. There’s dye everywhere... running down her neck, on and in her ears and all over her forehead.
Kay-lyn is all like, “Dad, your rubbing on my head too hard!, or “Your making such a mess!”
Or my personal favorite, “But Dad, you got some dye in my eyes and I can’t see.” I’m like, “Don’t be such a baby and rub it out.”
Kidding, I give her a wet washcloth. Sometimes.
I did get to thinking there has to be a better, easier and more masculine way to dye hair. I’m trying to incorporate/invent some sort of power tool to do the job. So, I had a thought that maybe a pressure washer would be able to the job in slightly under seven seconds. I’m still not sure how its going to work, but I am looking for investors for my Pressure Washer Hair Dye Delivery System (Patent Pending). This is just in the planning stages, but I have already come up with a company slogan. Wait for it..... “Hair Dye At A 1,000 PSI”. And who says I need more sleep when I can still come up with brilliant ideas like that?
Anyways, moving on. Do you remember that time you had a headache and didn’t tell anyone about it? Yeah, me neither.
I found some Spinach wraps in my cupboard the other day. I think they were from a couple months ago, but there was no real way to tell if they were moldy.
Spanx. That is all I’m allowed to say about that.
Hey, here’s something you never hear: My hotmail account works soooo awesome!
You should never wear a fanny pack because it makes you look like you’re wearing a fanny pack.
It was definitely a ‘good news/bad news’ week.
The good news, for me, is that my sister made me a big container of egg salad and it was delicious! The bad news, for everyone else, is that my sister made me a big container of egg salad and it was delicious!
Finally this week, some insightful words to live by. “You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time you make it, it’s no longer a mistake, it’s a choice.”
