I wasn't kidding when I said I was having a bad hair month.
It all started back at the end of November, when my hair salon didn't make their typical "reminder call" to me for my hair appointment the next day. And since I hadn't written down the appointment in my calendar, I totally forgot all about it and therefore stood my hair lady up. I know, I know, it's completely irresponsible, but I live by the reminder call. Calendar schmalendar. Why write it down when I know my trusty [hair salon][doctor][dentist] will call me the day before and conveniently remind me where I need to be and when I need to be there?
Well, because sometimes they forget, that's why. And then you feel like a schmoe for not writing it down in your calendar. Now you tell me.
After I was a no-show for my appointment, my hair lady called me up and left me a lovely voice mail saying I could reschedule at any time. I meant to call her back, but then I forgot. (See? I even need reminder calls to return my reminder calls. I'm hopeless). And then I got super busy at work. And then it was time for the holidays and Christmas shopping and family gatherings and before I knew it, it was the middle of January and I had started to look like this guy:
Seriously, this guy could be my clone right now. We could take our flippy bangs out on the town and just have a big old misfit party.
I'm planning to call my hair lady tomorrow and beg her to squeeze me in ASAP. Hopefully she won't hold the fact that I stood her up last time against me. And no matter when she gets me in, I'm definitely writing this appointment down in my calendar. I don't want to spend a minute more than necessary walking around with elf-hair. Good lord, I think I might even give her the reminder call this time, just to make sure I cover all my bases.
