Hacked Hair Horror

I told ya!   When I went with Mama, to the free lunch for homeless, and low income people, the first thing Miss Betty asked me was,  “Oh honey!   Are you having chemo??”     With an implied, Bless your heart.

4 steps away from her, Pastor Julio reached out to me.   “Oh no!   your Mama din’t tell me you had cancer!   I’ll pray for you!”

Then the red-headed Miss Betty came ALL the way across the room to scold me.    “Why’d you do that to your HAIR??”    At least she didn’t ask if I had cancer!

eyes rolled back in head

    Oh brother!

 

 

Since I knew it was gonna happen, I wanted to have some sarcastic zingers all ready to go.    But, how can you be sarcastic to precious ladies who are really concerned about you????   Ya can’t.    So, I just told them the truth.     “It was so long, it bothered me!”   Leaving out the “I-had-a-wild-hair-and-now-it’s-gone” part.

  5. Frustation!  I’m not the most techie person in the world, so I get upset when I can’t just do what I want to do!  Why don’t I have a computer I can just speak to, and it instantly does my bidding????  WHY????
  6. Not having a sarcasm font.  I’ve asked for it enough times.  Someone should have invented this already!!
  7. Green. Yuck!
  8. Sushi.  Just the thought of it makes me queasy.  Believe me, I’ve eaten my share of stuff, so let me slide, okay?  Thanks!
  9. Running out of ice… and since I live alone, this would be the fault of ?????
  10. When I don’t get a nap.  So does everyone around me hate when this happens!!  (Can you say Grumpy?  I thought you could.)

Strawberry City

A girl was born in Strawberry City,

strawberry

long long long long long (5 decades worth of longs) ago but not so far away.

She was so fair of face, that the Strawberry Fairy decided to  kiss her neck, leaving a strawberry mark.

The Strawberry Girl grew, grew, and  grew until she was as tall as a pine tree.

Unfortunately, the more she grew, the clumsier she became. Everywhere she turned, she made messes, and clutter followed her.

Her Normal size Mama tried to teach her grace, and cleaning skills.  Poor Strawberry Girl just couldn’t seem help it.

Messes, and clutter began to overflow the house, then the town.

All the Housewives banded together, and petitioned for her to go away.

Sadly, Strawberry Girl left for a larger city, farther way.

It was heart breaking leaving family, friends, and her home.

Finally, she reached the larger city, and met new friends.  The first 4 people she ran into were Normal size Jack , Normal size Melody, Tiny Noel, and Tiny Roe.

Strawberry Girl was thrilled to make friends who accepted her, clumsiness, messes, and all.  But, one thing was missing.

In despair, she asked God where all the other giants were.

One day, at a party, her 4 friends ran up to Strawberry Girl, and excitedly told her to “Close your eyes!  We have a surprise for you!”

Eyes clenched, feeling the ground shaking, Strawberry Girl was full of fear.  Fear of the unknown.  What was happening???

“Open your eyes!” her friends chorused.  Wonderingly, she did.  And what did her eyes behold??
