The Key to My Long Locks...


Ha, ha, oh I crack myself up. Do you get it? I'm soooo
f(p)unny....................................(I'm just waiting for you guys to catch up.)

So, let's talk about my super duper long hair. Why, you might ask don't I just get a haircut already. I mean really, I only wear it down for pictures and fast sundays.

Well, it all started somewhere around Halloween last year. I was feeling extremely antzy pantzy. I was ready to jump in my non-convertible car with the non-top down and let the wind blow through my non-long locks until I got to the east coast...or Minnesota...or New Zealand...it really didn't matter where, I just HAD to get out of UTAH.

So, my quick thinking hub, not wanting to see his wife run off to the ends of the earth, never to return again, said, "I'll tell ya what, I'll make you a bet." Oh, I'm such a sucker for a bet. Those of you that really know me, know I just love to WIN. (not that I'm a sore loser or anything, I just enjoy winning so much more) Anyway, back to this bet and how it unlocks the key to my long locks. He said, "I bet you can't grow your hair long without getting totally sick of it and cutting it off." I said, "Are you kidding me!! You are so on! Whatlya give me?" He said, "If you grow your hair long, I'll take you on a cruise, then you can have that vacation you're craving." Oh yeah, he's good. He knows I can't say no and I don't think to ask for details. So we shook on it and we started the bet.

I know what you're thinking. Wow, her hair is way long, where's her cruise? Well, here's the thing. About six months into the bet, I came back to my hub with, "Well, have ya seen my hair lately, it's LONG." "Where's my cruise?" To which he replied with an evil smirk on his face, "Oh, that's not long, I meant like 'MERMAID' long." To which I replied, "Are you kidding me!! You are sooo.... $@%#$ not kidding me, are you." I mean "mermaid" long, are you serious? Anyway, long story short, I still have a couple inches to go. So Saturday I went to Walmart and purchased some "liquid hair in a bottle" (okay, really it was hair,skin, and nail vitamins). I am determined to get my cruise before it's been a whole year. Then when I get back from my cruise I just might have to shave my head. (or not, I actually kinda like my long locks)

Men love long hair, this was just Dan's way of having a vacation and a hot wife...so he thinks he is really winning.

Skeet said...

Ha ha Steve, I'm considering either extensions or a lift.
