I got my hair did on Earth Day. It’s kinda an earthy thing to do. I just sit still in a chair while using chemicals to hide my roots. Uhhh. It’s not a hard thing to do, but what’s hard is sitting still in chair “reading” a magazine, while two of the dumbest people ever are having a conversation about pomade. Here’s a summarized run-down of the conversation:
Stylist: I don’t know what Mad Men is.
Client: It’s this show about the fifties or something. All they do is drink & smoke.
(me – thinking to myself: Don’t forget the sex.)
Client: But they put some stuff on their hair back then. Like Vaseline. Do you know what I’m talking about?
(me – thinking to myself: It’s pomade. It’s still used today. They even sell it here.)
Stylist: Uhl… I know what you’re talking about. But I don’t know what it’s called. What do people use Vaseline for anyways? I only know to use it on my [butt].
Yup. that’s what I did yesterday. I listened to that. Now you can too. I remember the rest. But they did go on to talk about the many uses of Vaseline… it was pretty painful. On a light note, my hair is AWESOME!!!
