Oh for crying out loud..

So I spent the last two weeks preparing for this Friday when I see him and I had planned on seeing if he's just an insufferable flirt or if there's something else going on.  Lost 5 lbs, got my hair cut, found a pair of jeans that hug in all the right places and a shirt that shows off my new figure (25lbs down!).  Figured out exactly how I'm going to pull him around to the topic.

Then a charity that is near and dear to my heart has a cut-a-thon.  I decide I'll just go get my bangs trimmed a little.  OMG!  I went from sexy librarian with soft waves & curled under bangs to stick straight choppy dominatrix hair.  I'm not kidding you.  It's completely out of my comfort zone.  It's cute but it's not innocent brown-eyed-girl cute.  I know how to rock that.  I don't know how to rock bold and dominant.  There is no fixing these bangs.  Then AF showed up a week early.  I'm feeling less than sexy.  And today I ended up having to text him that he'll have to come back to the main ranch after working our other location this Friday.  That means that he'll be a rush to get done to avoid traffic between the two places.  Sigh.  If I wake up Friday morning with pink eye or covered in poison ivy, I'm going to laugh until I cry.  Or cry until I laugh.

On the up side, I work outside and these are great sweaty bangs.  They don't sag.  They don't fall.  They just sit there in their spikey wonder.  Now how is THAT for optimism?

O! CowGirl, aren't you a fresh breath of air?

You are the Messiah this board has been waiting for! You are the optimistic energy and burlesque enshrined in the femininity of a cowgirl!

O! How did you become so witty cowgirl? 

Beware the obscure cowboy who deserves you not. Gone are the days of knowing not. If what I read is your way of life and your way of speech, then I shall be much obliged to ask for your hand as I kneel in front of you as your humble servant!

Now I can retire from my position as the "senior board comedian", knowing that my office, my desk, and more importantly, my typewriter is in good hands :smileywink:


P.S: Now the serious part: Didn't mean to be insensitive to your frustration... it will pass... really liked your attitude.

LOL, I think the idea of a short-haired "dominatrix" flipped some kind of dormant switch in Iannmann...

So you got a crappy haircut? Good. Now you'll know if he's really attracted to you or just your hair :smileywink: Ride on cowgirl...there are always more stallions in the stable!

Lol. One of my coworkers always wore her hair long, straight, and simple. She felt like she wanted a bit of a change, and the next day came to work with some choppy blunt layers, with short and severe bangs. It was very girl rock-band-ish. I must admit, we were a little alarmed at first, as was she. After that initial cut she kept the theme, but made it a little softer. We all grew to love the cut, and when I look back at her old pics, I don't like them! The current haircut is so much more fun and young and matches her lively personality way more! I think you'll learn to love it. Or you could eventually modify it a little to make it blend more.
