Behind My Picket Fence.....

One of Life’s Connundrums…….

OK you caught me.  I’m having a good hair day. 

BUT, why is it that when you’re having a good hair day (and it doesn’t happen to me all that often!), you have nowhere to go and no one sees you?  Except your husband and lord knows he’s not likely to notice.    I mentioned this question to Mr. Picket Fence at lunch today and he said, “actually I did notice you hair was nice today”.  To which I replied “thanks for not sharing that thought with me”……

Has this ever happened to you?  Well, of course it has.  What do I do now?  If I go outside, I’ll ruin my hair in the breeze.  If I stay in the house I’m taking a big risk that no one will pop in.  I don’t know Brad Pitt, Cameron Mathison or any other hunky movie star.  And Lord knows, I don’t want to be a home wrecker but I gotta tell you that if one of those guys stops at my house today, he’ll take one look at my hair and say, hey sweetie, wanna go out for an adult beverage?  And it will snowball from there & pretty soon you’ll read in the tabloids about this old woman in Minnesota who’s short, fat, ugly and well, old……..who has broken up (fill in name here)’s marriage. 

There’s only so much pressure I can handle.  You hearing me sister? 

Now I don’t want any of you people that I know personally to stop over today.  ‘Cuz I’m thinking YOU’D be thinking:  HUH?  That’s nice?  Well, I think it’s nice and that’s all that counts. 


I think I’ll go to town which is only a quick 25 mile round trip.  We’re out of milk…………….

Oh I know just what you mean! I always plan lots of errands or lunch out with a friend the day I get my haircut. Some one has just got to see it!

Our Mr's must be related! Same salaries (mine has some nice benefits too! ) and the same noticing but not mentioning routine.

Have a nice trip into town. Just make sure you don't take the truck with the 2/55 a/c sista!!

hugs, Linda

OMG, you're a hoot!! When I'm having a good hair day and go out, I see no one I know but let me run to the store for a loaf of bread, no makeup on, jogging pants, baggy shirt and wild hair....I see people I haven't seen in years!! That leaves a great impression in their mind, huh? LOL!!!!

Hi, hair ya doing? I have a suggestion. Take pictures--lots and lots of pictures of your impeccable hair. You can use them to recreate that perfect do again, and if you're unable to create it again, you can always use them as evidence!

I loved this post--very funny! You have a great sense of humor!

I just about peed my pants reading this post!!! I had that hair day yesterday...only I didn't really notice until it was later on in the evening....(yes...I know how sad that sounds...) so....I thought about sleeping sitting up so as to preserve the hair...and then thought that maybe that would be pushing it a bit...lord knows what injury I would have gotten if I fell over! I went to bed with fingers and toes crossed for a good hair day all day long today...but you know ...a girl should never be looked like perhaps I should have been wearing a hat...and that was after the shower and blow dry!!! and I KNOW YOU KNOW what I'M sayin!!!! lol
I have showbiz tonight on the tube...waiting to hear that you made the entertainment news ya hottie!

Love the hair! Have to say I'm having a pretty bad hair day today, so I've opted for the bed-head look....very fashionable I'm told by my 15 going on 16 yr old...mind you if I could get a look in the mirror....Guess who's hogging it!?? Why does it take a 15/16 yr old 45 minutes to straighten out five strands of hair??? Give my best to Brad Pitt...hehehe!

I know what you're saying-----about the hair! Been there, done that! But--is Mr. Farmer spiking your coffee or your ice tea??? I'm sure Brad will be stoping in at Foxhome real soon. I'm just say'n!!

Your loving SIL

you don't even wanna know about the hair today!!! PONYTAIL....need I elaborate? darn good thing I am mowing
You know...a little dirt and sweat to spruce things up just a tad??? ya I knew you'd know!
It is just hot as it gets here this week...fall seems to be hotter for us than summer was this year! go figure...I am positive that mother nature is going thru the "change" and has her hot flashes, mood swings and is in general ticked at father time!
Better go...there is dirt waiting to get on my clothes...and bug bites to be had!
