When I started this blog, I started it as a fun place to tell my silly (mostly self-depricating) stories, provide the occasional uplifting content and try to get through the darkest time of my life without going to the looney bin. I also wanted it to be somewhere where I could experiment with certain things or do-it-yourself projects and post my findings. I mean, nothing MAJOR. Just silly things that I could heap embarassment on myself and possibly spare some friends of mine.
Like, for instance, I always wondered what it would be like to have a wig.
Not a Halloween wig. I mean a REAL, PROPER, WIG.
I wondered "What would it be like to go to bed with SHORT hair and then wake up and go to work with LONG (possibly different colored) hair?!?!?"
The possibilities are ENDLESS!!! You could go to bed UGLY and then wake up and go to work PRETTY!!! Consider it!!!!!!!! I mean, I can't lose 50 lbs or one of my chins overnight, but dangit, I CAN remove the emphasis from my saddlebags and project it upward to my suddenly long, flowing, and luscious hair.
Anyone else ever been curious about a wig? Ever?
Well, wonder no more! I bought one!
And it makes me look like a Kardashian. You know, the pale, Irish sister. Kathleen. Kathleen O'Kardashian.
(Ok, strike that last paragraph. It was really stupid. Even for me.)
Bought a wig. It's incredible. I drew a picture of how it transformed me.
That's right... do you SEE that?
Here is an actual photograph of me RIGHT after I put it on:
You can sense my hesitation at first. Kind of a "Yes, I FEEL instantly glamorous, but I'm wondering if I could ever feel glamorous outside of my basement abode..." look.
More wondering: "Will people laugh at me? Will they be like 'Um...your hair was pink yesterday... and now it's significantly longer AND brown WITH highlights...' Will they think I am a babe and immediately throw a modeling contract in my face?" (Those are just the FIRST THREE questions that popped into my head.)
The main reason I wanted to buy the wig is to see if I'd even look good if I continued growing my hair out. The answer to that question:
YOU LOOK SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER WITH LONG, NORMAL HAIR. MAYBE YOU MIGHT EVEN GET SOMEONE TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU. OH MY GOSH DON'T EVER TAKE THE WIG OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!
[Almost] Everything looks better when I'm wearing the wig. Check it out:
Talking on the phone with my Mom? SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!
My Springtime sunglasses (they're already awesome...)? SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!!!!
My mad scientist glasses? They make me look like a HOTT scientist now! SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!!!
New hat... wait for it... SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER!!!
Ridicously large bow? Um... the hair still looks nice.
Picking my teeth because I didn't know what else to do? Gross, but I look better than usual.
Kristin and I have decided that I'm going to wear the wig OUT some day and we'll see if I get any favorable attention from the male types.
This could be entertaining! Stay tuned!
