Fury Road

I woke up this morning feeling like—as my friend, Lily, so delicately puts it—dog shit on the bottom of God’s shoe.  Also, furious.  But I pulled on my swimsuit, intending to take it out in the water.  Except I was 90 minutes early.

Fury boiled.

I raced to the nearest salon.  “Can someone cut my hair right now?”

“Yes!” the hapless pixie piped.  “And today all haircuts are $10!”

“Great.  Shave it all off.  I can’t stand it another second.  I’m tired of trying to look like something.”

She did.

And I left feeling like my outside finally matched my inside.  Furious.  And the closest I’ll ever come to looking like Charlize Theron.

Furious helps.  Furious brings the Bad-Ass, which is now in full display.

I roared off to misbehave and brought home two bags full of art supplies. Now we’ll see what fury can really do.

    I love your hair! I have thought of going even shorter with mine lately… you might just be the inspiration I need!! I love your eyeglass frames too.

    Dear Sandy,

    Lori told me about this post after I just confessed to her this morning that I had shaved my head. Different circumstances, but same result. I am glad to know that I am not the only impulsive woman in history to do this. HA! Did it myself with my husband’s sheers. Yours looks much nicer; more professionally coifed. When my head finishes healing I will see about letting a professional even mine up a bit. 😉
