Cage Free Series 023
Horned Owl perches on a branch asking his eternal question... Whooo?
Sometimes I get impatient and then the Universe teaches me a lesson that I have to continue living for a while. This happens a lot with my hair especially. I have a stylist that I love. Instead of making a regular appointment with her I wait until my hair is unruly. And then madness sets in and I take matters into my own hands. Last night I put matters (or rather, scissors) into the hands of my daughter. She is Fifteen and not a professional stylist. I have let her cut my hair in the past with varying results. (The time when she was Five was probably my most insane.)
This time, she did fine. Until I gave her the shaver. That was the turning point.
I should have known she was a little too excited using the shaver. Now I look like a rocker chick with the sides of my head shaved. I did save my eyebrow, though.
Perhaps the owl should be asking, "What were you thinking?"
I wasn't thinking Mr. Owl. I was being impatient. My kid is an awesome sport when I ask her to do crazy things for me. And my hair will grow back. Thanks, Universe. I will:
Take a breath.
