Okay, I know it has been a long time, but I have been busier than ever. I want to devote today's post to telling some stories of some classic "blonde" moments I have had. I think you will find these as funny as I do now....
Rick and I had just got married. We barely had two quarters to rub together to buy a Coke so when we ever got any extra money we made sure it went to good use. I had to give up my high dollar hair treatments, makeup, and perfume when I got married, which was kinda hard for me. When Rick got a little extra money at work I wanted to go and get me something I was accustomed to that I had given up. We didn't have a lot extra so I started off low with some Pantene shampoo and conditioner. I was so excited, and my hair seemed to be jumping up and down because it was about to get a break from the VO5 which it had never known. I was meticulous about which formula I was going to get. It had to be perfect. I had some highlights in my hair so I definitely wanted to get something that helped keep them nice looking. My pick was the new formula just for "color".
I went straight home and took a shower just so I could use my shampoo. I started blowing it dry and it would never really seem to dry right. It was like my hair was coated in Crisco. I just shrugged it off to it having A LOT of moisturizers. My hair looked like I had not washed it in weeks. But I did not care, it was Pantene and I was not going to waste it!
My mom and my sister came over one day just for a visit and I think they both asked what was wrong with my hair. I ran upstairs and got the shampoo and asked what they thought the problem could be. I handed it to Meg and she immediately busted out laughing, and when mom looked over so did she. I was still totally in the dark. The bottles said for "women of color". Colored hair, right? Uh, no. I was using shampoo just for black ladies. I could not believe what I had done and the fact that I had used it for two weeks before I realized the problem (and even then, with a little help).
2. I Will Never like Martha Stewart
I honestly think this one tops the last one. Again, this is when we had just got married. I stayed at home at the time. We did not have cable so my TV program selection was very limited. Martha Stewart's show was on so I figured I would watch it. It was kinda boring me until she started talking about a new discovery that everyone would soon start using. Potato Power I believe it was called. She was telling how much energy there is in just a single spud. Even enough to power a small appliance like a lamp, toaster, or can opener simply by plugging it in to the potato. Well, I was amazed. How come everyone does not know about this yet? I had to see it for myself. So I marched into my kitchen, grabbed a potato, a mixer and plugged that baby right in. I cut it on AND.............nothing. It just sat there. Just about the time I was thinking that maybe I was doing something wrong I heard Martha oh so sneakily mutter, "April fools day everyone". I was in disbelief. I stood there potato in one hand and mixer in the other feeling like a complete moron. Just when I cold not feel any dumber here comes Rick walking in for lunch. I still have the stuff in my hands. After the "what the heck are you doing with a potato plugged into a mixer look" went by I told him the whole story. He laughed so hard he almost wet his pants. He also told everyone he came in contact with for like the next week.
3. Short and Sweet
Okay, I am tired of typing so I am going to continue these stories at a later time. Believe me, there are plenty more.
Last but not least...
The other night we were discussing movies. I piped up and asked one of the stupidest questions I have ever asked. And I quote, "I know the second movie in a series is a sequel, but what is the third.... a triquel?"
Need I say more, The End
