How thoughtful

November 16, 2008


Before Saturday’s trip to Lincoln I was in kind of a rush, so I didn’t get any hairspray put in my hair to keep it in its normally perfectly-coiffed state.  (Time out for laughter.)  My hair looked so bad I was thinking about buying some hairspray, but I happen to have several containers  around the house due to this very situation.  (I just buy a can/bottle, fix it, bring it home and add it to the pile.)  I didn’t want to do that this time, and considered going into a haircut place and asking them if I could give them a quarter to use a quick spritz.

Well, it just so happened that one of my stops for the day was the restaurant supply store (which I love).  I had to use the bathroom, and saw this:

Too pretty for guys to have placed there.

Obviously some woman works there, because only a woman knows that other women sometimes need supplies.

Holy mackeral!  It’s like a store.

Sure enough, it was chock-full of stuff. Extra t.p., cleaning things, Girl Things, tape, lotion, several spray bottle of body spray, a couple of deodorants (*jibblie*), a bottle of detangler, and surprisingly – a brand-new in-the-blister-pack toothbrush.  I could have camped there!  No hairspray, though, so I used air freshener.  Kidding!  (or am I?)

    Perhaps you can re-package the extra hairspray cans and sell them in an infomercial:
    “It’s a stain remover! It’s a blowtorch! It’s both!”

    Seriously? Stick deordorant? Bleck…

    All that stuff and no hairspray?!? Unimaginable.

    (And I’m a little envious that you went to Hockenberg’s.)

    I feel your pain, from another “my hair has a mind of its own” gal.

    FYI if you ever want to make the creases in your clothing REALLY crisp and starch just isn’t cutting it, Rave hairspray works wonders. Not for the iron, however. I don’t know how air fresheners would work.
