I have not posted in April, and April is just about finished. This is a crime. I’m certain your life has gone on without me. I get that. However, I like writing, and I came to this blog to do it.
I offer this feeble defense. I have not been writing because my life is in a whirlwind. (Inner voice: “… … LAME … “) I promise to find some equilibrium soon. And I tend to lean on a quote Elisabeth Gilbert delivers in Eat Pray Love: “You can let yourself off the hook any time you want.” I’m letting myself off the hook.
In the meantime, I did want to tell you this: I had great hair before I left for Armenia. I’d get lots of compliments. “What a coif!” they’d say.
Now: “You have Bieber hair.”
“Bieber. Justin Bieber. You have his haircut.”
To be fair:
I got this multiple times in D.C. Justin Bieber didn’t exist before I left the country. Then I come back, and he’s appropriated my hair style. There’s no arguing this point of course because once I offer this bit of pride, I have entered an argument with a 12(?) year-old worth billions(?) who will not be arguing back.
Still, I’m holding my ground. I do not have ‘The Bieber’. I have a hair style I like, one I will be wearing for a long time. And when VH1 does it’s Where Is Their Hair-Do Now? it will be right here.
