Squint and I'm Still Cute

You all may be right. I may be having depression hair. You should never cut your hair after a breakup or bankruptcy. I am having neither, but I did have a big move to a little place. It's not Lilliput, but you know what I mean.

Not to mention I totally got free contacts today because some man thought I was cute. That is one thing I like about living here; I am still atractive. At the nursing home, they call me, "The pretty girl." Yes, they are addled and occasionally blind, but I'll take what I can get.

In LA, they passed a law that I had to wear a bag over my head when I got anywhere near Beverly Hills, West L.A. or Malibu. I mean, women my age look like Lisa Renna, for heaven's sake. And by the way, she -- along with Julia Roberts -- is among the famous women who used to be older than me but suddenly are my age or younger.

Getting back to my milkshake and its ability to bring the one boy to the yard, I went to MUNroe to get glasses today. The man working at the eye doctor was so nice to me, as everyone here is. I was asking him if insurance covered both frames and contacts when he interrupted me to say (are you ready? This is exciting), "Don't you have a nice, thick head of hair on ya."

He then proceeded to give me free contacts. I am not making this up. He said it was just between us (and everyone reading this blog).

Now, you understand, it was my HAIR that got me these contacts. I know other women get private jets and trips to Barbados with their looks, but I will settle for free contacts.

So, Kellie, I am doing what you say. I am buying me another box of hair dye. And stie, I will not cut it yet.

Because apparently I am sizzlin' in central North Carolina.

whooohoooo!!! Keep your hair, girl! Way to schmooze the contacts guy! Nice mood lifter. That, along with "That pretty girl". Awwww. I love old people.

And, yes, I always thought that Julia Roberts was my age, but now she's 4 years younger than me. When did that happen?

This is too funny! Free is free, so take the free contacts and enjoy them. I guess now we will have to refer to you as the big hair lady. LOL.

Thank you, girlfriend. You will not regret it.

And free contacts? AWESOME! Take that hair and ride it all the way to the bank!

Sally Fields is now younger than me. We used to be the same age. Must be all that flying around. There are some people that you are related to that would love to have your hair.

That does it. I'm moving. I can't get free contacts in BFE Michigan.

Yay I was absolutely distressed at the thought of you going gray. Well .. maybe that is an exaggeration .. but I am glad you are putting the youth tonic i.e. dye .. through your hair again.

With regards to Lisa Renna .. WHO would want to do THAT to their face .. she looks terrible.
