"You got bangs."
Why yes I did.
This statement was told to me about fifteen times today, by different people who noticed that I got my hair cut. How do I like it? I am in love with my bangs.
About two weeks ago I found a picture online of a woman who looked almost exactly like me, but with bangs. The thought to get bangs again had never entered my mind. But I thought, why not? It's just my hair and it will be a change, right in time for the new year. So The Mother called up the woman that does our hair. Turns out she was available, right in time. I was so excited.
But I had to wait three days.
I busied myself with other things. I watched (500) Days of Summer over and over and over. I fell in love with the idea of Summer and Tom together, but more importantly I fell in love with her haircut. I wanted it. I wanted it bad. I waited and waited.
And then the day came.
When she cut them, it was a major shock. There was hair... on my forehead! But I came to terms and I fell in love. Just like Tom. Except he fell in love with Summer.
p.s.- If you have not seen (500) Days of Summer, go see it right now! It is my favorite movie and I cannot stop watching it. Am I keeping my bangs for 500 days? Maybe, just maybe.
