I lost a good buddy this week...
But the buddy I'm talking about now...was with me for a long time...(well not as long as Carl - 28 years). I believe it was 10-15 years. We went through thick and thin. We spent time arguing about the benefits and/or detriments of long and short. Did I like things hot, warm, or cool? Fast or slow? Was I in a hurry? (when wasn't I?)
But it was over. Something didn't feel right about it. Everything it did, just felt so cold! The last time this happened, it just stopped. Nothing. Nada. Ka-put.
But first I needed to find a new one. Ugh. If you've read this for even a little while, you know I do not like shopping. I went over to the local drug store. Prices have come down, over the years, I thought. I decided to buy the most expensive device. It was $34 plus tax. It had two controls: fast, medium, slow. And hot, medium and cool. That was one more switch than my old buddy had.
And color! This has some great color. And bigger! It hardly fits inside the drawer!
I'm talking about my hair dryer. It was so faithful...lying in the bathroom drawer, each day waiting for me to fire it up. But alas, it didn't have the heat any more. I gave it a decent burial, in the carriage house recycle bin for electrical items.
Now that I've whacked off my silver bobbed hair...(it's been two weeks) this beast is hard to handle. I'm not sure if it is creating a windstorm for my head..or if there is a way to tame it, and I can learn to love it.
I'll figure it out. Or I won't.
