"Your beauty is too much for me ~ I'm in over my head." Song of Solomon 6:5. The Message
From the time I was very young, I remember wanting to be really, really good at something. Many things have piqued my interest and I figured I could learn how to do most anything from a book. Undoubtedly, that is why I enjoy research. (Thankfully, I have never wanted to do brain surgery nor go to the moon. Although I would like to watch brain surgery.)
Years ago, pre-pc, my public library totebag included books on such diverse topics as nutrition, fitness, cooking, “real books” for home schooling, décor, fashion, marriage, parenting, homeopathy, and an array of diy manuals.
One such manual (video included!) gave instructions on cutting hair at home. You could say I had a wild hair that we could save big if the kids and husband would let me play beauty shop. On them. And because one of us had to have her hair done professionally to observe technique, my hair was not included in Project Run-a-way. As in, “Don’t run away from me when I chase you with the scissors!”
However, my attempt at family hair care was a no go due to a couple of mishaps. Involving hair. Not skin. Well…maybe a tad of skin on the ear.
Undeterred, I moved from head hair to convincing Guitar Girl into letting me wax her eyebrows. Can I just say how sorry I am? Clearly, hot wax and eyelashes are not a good combo. But thank goodness for Vaseline. I wish I could tell you that was my last beauty shop boo-boo...
(I promise there's an eyebrow under there. And an eye. And eyelashes!)
