Last night I decided I had had enough of this long hair business. Actually, about a month ago I had had enough of this long hair business, but because it had taken so much time to grow out (4 years!) and other people seemed to like it (thank you), I kept it. However, as other people don’t have to deal with it, go through massive amounts of shampoo and conditioner to keep it clean, and massive amounts of ibuprofen because of the headaches it causes, I pulled into the hair salon this morning (sans appointment) determined to be rid of it. As Claire cut a substantial eight inches off, I thought I might feel some regret over cutting it off. I didn’t. Not an ounce. I was overjoyed when she was done.
