Poised provocatively with scissors


As my life is now under new management, I am horrified to discover that I am agreeing to the ridiculous suggestions that the Gin Club are making. Last night I was dragged off to see the film extravaganza 'Sex in the City' and I was supposed to enjoy it even though I have never given one second of my time to the series.

"You'll love it after a few drinks." they said

Surprisingly, I did, but possibly not on the level that my fellow covenites might have expected. You see, it was the psycology of the thing that fascinated me most. Despite of the fact that Demanda kept nudging me in the ribs and saying "Do you think I am like Samantha?", I was fascinated to see that the merkans have Gin Clubs too.

"They are just like us, except for all that long hair." Demoana said, tipping her her drink over the very posh leather seat.

I tentatively patted my own hair - fourteen inches of uncontrollable scruff. Are you supposed to have long hair after you are forty?
Sarah Jessica Parker obviously needed hers to cover some of her face, but the trollopy Samantha was wearing hers with sexually liberated, knob hunting freedom. I was confused.

What am I portraying? Sexual predator of less than spring chicken years or just a lazy cow who can't be bothered to find a decent hairdresser?

So here I stand, scissors poised provocatively - do I chop, or not?


Oh, and Happy Litha - health and healing to all

You know what they say, Minxlet - a change is as good as a holiday. So, do you need a holiday? Well, do you, or would some sex in the city suffice...?
;-)

Scissors in one hand, gin in the other... it can come to no good.

Roberta said...

Go for it!! A change will do you good!

I would however, pick up the phone and call a local hairdresser and have HER do the chopping professionally.

The difference between a good haircut and a bad one is ... six weeks.

(It's only hair. It'll grow back!)

Half and Half, Minx.

Minx said...

I am never half and half, Soub, don't be ridiculous.

Oh I think change is good, but I agree with roberta, let a professional do the cutting. That is, unless you are talented at that sort of thing.

I suffered many years under my mothers nightmare haircuts. I vowed never to cut my own hair or the hair of anyone else & I never have.

Jon M said...

Leave the locks long! You're not saying anything other than, I like wearing my hair long!

john.g. said...

I think the latter. Get a decent hair-cut!

Cailleach said...

Um. Having had both skinhead and long luscious (okay, then scraggy) locks... it's hard to know... I must post a picture of me with bugger all hair ... actually go here: Babs with short hair

handmaiden said...

You know, I went to the hairdresser yesterday & as i was trying to decide what to let her do to me...I considered telling her to shave my head.

Starting over with a clean pate, so to speak. ← Ha ha! Now that was funny. I hardly ever come up with puns.

Minx said...

Buzz cut, hmm?

Jan said...

Pile it up on your head and stick a pin/slide/clip in.... and IF then you're STILL fed up with Rapunzel locks ( and only then) ...cut it!

Marie said...

Well, it's up to you, but long is better.

fatboysblogg said...

Babs looks good with short hair.

Minx said...

Not ready for neat and tidy so I have forgiven it its wild and uncontrollable ways - it's staying.

Cailleach said...

I knew you would Minx ;) You're gorgeous the way you are!

Thanks FB, but that was a while a go... I think the kids would freak now and disown me!

Debi said...

Oh! Too late ... First Born is already haring along the A30 on his bike with a pair of blunt scissors between his teeth. Hide, Minxy, hide!

Hoodie said...

I find a good haircut liberating, a chance to look at the "new" me and realize, hey, that's me too!

But only if you want to do it. Only if YOU want to do it.

Minx said...

Aghhhh! An FB with scissors! Running, running.....

Are witches allowed to cut their hair or will they lse all their powers like Samson?
