Now there's a scary thought

I went to a new hairdresser today as my hair was beyond any form of being able to do anything with it whatsoever. Jackie from the village, who usually cuts my hair, isn't a stylist. She's very good at cutting but you have to know what you want. I wanted to grow mine, but that was a bit of mistake as I was beginning to look like Coco the Clown on a good day and I just didn't know what to do. And so began the internet search for someone who had the wherewithall to actually cut my rather strange hair.

The person I ended up with has won awards and doesn't cost the earth, so I thought I'd give him a try. Our phone conversation was interesting and I think he wondered what was going to come through his door this morning and when I did turn up he tried not to look too shocked but didn't hide it well. I think his assistant was stifling a giggle at the time.

As he was chopping away he asked what I did for a living. I told him he had to guess. His one and only guess before he gave up was...

a publisher!

Now that really is scary, don't you think?

Probably on a par with getting a new haircut in my view. And the verdict re the haircut is... well it's ok. I'm getting used to it. I'll see how I feel tomorrow before I decide whether I'll ever go back.


  1. Well MM thinks it looks lovely! But perhaps he's biased.
    As for publishing, do I see a new career beckoning? There are a few spare minutes here and there that could be profitably filled.

  2. At least the hair survived the 'morning after' as my bed head was actually reasonable this morning, so I'm feeling slightly more confident. Would have helped if those who I was with last night had even noticed I'd had a hair cut tho!
