Honesty is the cornerstone of a healthy relationship unless, let's be real, it involves "does this make me look fat" questions. ~Miss G.
This is my hmmm, Mom, let's think on it for 2 to 4 years look.
This evening, while watching an episode of Game of Thrones, Mrs. G turned to me and asked a question that gets thrown around about once every 4-6 months in the G house hold. "Should I cut all my hair off? What about just a simple, short cut?"
In previous years I might have humored her, but having gone through this cycle multiple times in the past (ending, 9/10 times, with woe and much wringing of hands) I was forced to be honest and provide her with the two primary reasons why this would be a very Bad Idea.
1. A "simple, short cut" necessitates lots of maintenence to prevent the unwanted "orphan child" look from taking over. Mrs. G does not exactly have a very good track record with hair maintenence, in fact this is essentially the opposite of her usual M.O., which embraces her hair's natural energy by allowing it to reign free and unmolested.
2. When one has (as all G women do - myself included) a head not unlike a bowling ball, it is generally unwise to accentuate that fact by chopping off your distracting hair-cape. This is a mistake we all have made.
Mrs. G, though stung, could not argue with the logic of my argument. So, Derfs, on that note: share stories of your worst hair mistakes.
