Her name was Jaime

I got a haircut a couple of weeks ago, and wasn’t real thrilled with it. Lloyd rolls his eyes when I complain about my hair because I don’t ”Build a Relationship” with ”Someone Who Knows What They’re Doing”. Nope. I’m a big fan of the walk-in method of hair shortening. Today I had a goal […]

It's everybody's everything.

I’ve said before how I like to buy my bathroom air freshener at the beauty supply store. I see my going in there as a comedy service for the employees – I’m sure they get a good snicker out of seeing me there. They don’t carry the strictly orange-scented Citrus Mist anymore, it’s a multi-citrus […]
