i have been cutting my own hair for over a year now. if i had good hair, i would leave it long, but i don't... so i buzz it off. for some reason, i got on this 'cut your own hair' kick to be a more selfsufficient girl, but i end up looking like a selfsufficient boy. whatev.
about a year ago, i had an extreme hair accident. i had forgotten to put the clipguard on the buzzers and couldn't figure out why on earth so much hair was falling to the floor. it was called 'the racing stripe' until it grew out. everyone needs a month of a racing stripe to really ground you and remind you that you really aren't as cute as you think you are. extreme hair is extreme humility. when i realized what a dumbass thing that i had done, i couldn't even cry. all i could say was "oh, my God!" over and over. i can still hear my sister laughing hysterically on the phone when i called her just minutes after i had racingstriped it. (see, i even created a verb. please feel free to use it. i hope you don't have to, though.)
when i asked vv if i should buzz it short again early this morning, she said 'sure. just don't do the racing stripe, mom!' anyway, we all make mistakes. it is when we make the same ones over and over again that we have a real problem.
