Miss B brought me a $2 bill for good luck!
"You need it!" she said.
She takes all the cans to be recycled.
Nary a Monster in the lot.
My new haunt is beauty supply stores.
If you can imagine that. I've really taken to this hair science.
But only because I am too dumb to be afraid!
I love the coloring aspect. I "get" it, I think.
Note the eyebrows! Yep - did those too.
Not afraid, that is, until I saw this!
Despite the heat, it gave me cold chills.
And a cold sweat. A little anxiety rising.
Bought every kind of soap and cleaner
and bleach and sanitizer on the market.
Then, I realized the connection.
That chair somehow triggered some sublimated memory
form my childhood! It was a good time for the denial
to break through. Now that I don't have layers
of "me" to "protect" me from the world at large,
all kinds of thoughts have come up.
No food or drinking or excess or anything else much.
Nowhere to "hide" my hide!
There's nothing to hide, anyways.
Except maybe naugahyde.
And humor. Wit works as well.
I guess Miss B's $2 bill did the trick!
This just in:
I'm in a good enough place right now to not allow
this most recent revelation de-rail me!
I can do hard things! (A nod to Dana here.)
I can analyze this. Get to the bottom of the angst.
So I looked again at the picture.
OMG OMG OMG
There is a picture of a naked woman right beside it! On black velvet.
Wha - wh - what the eff? What is she doing there? What an odd juxtaposition.
No wonder the panda was looking so shocked.
Why in a beauty supply store? Unless it was Sweeney Todd's barber shop.
Who knows how many other things were "hiding" there, in plain sight!
All righty then - that's enough "uncovering" for one day!
Literally and figuratively! *phew!*
We now return to our regularly scheduled activities.
