Pretty on the Outside

What’s next? Rogaine?

When I was living in Puerto Rico I became persona non grata in my household. Well, not so much me as my hair. Not the hair on my head, but more specifically the hair that used to be on my head.

My Big Bang Theory

I was sitting in bed a few days ago when out of nowhere I went to the drawer where I keep my hair things (brushes, hair pins, barrettes, etc...) and started looking for my scissors.  Before I knew it, there was hair on the dresser and I had bangs.  All I could think was, "Oh,… Continue reading My Big Bang Theory
