Once again, I saw a very, very short haircut and thought how adorable it is. Emma Watson (Hermoine in the Harry Potter films) got her hair cut in a very short pixie, reminiscent of Mia Farrow's old look in the late '60s. I think it's gorgeous. I honestly thought for a moment how fun it would be to be all cute and pixie-like.
Then I remembered that:
A/ I'm not 20 anymore.
B/ I am not a size 0 or anything close to it.
C/ It would feel liberating for about a day, but then I would just think I look like a man which would mean:
D/ I would feel the need to wear makeup all the time.
E/ I could really only wear my hair in one style.
F/ I would be ready for long hair again in about a week, but it would take me three years or more to get my hair back to where it is now, and even now my hair is too short for some of the hairstyles I love.
G/ I would probably look about 10 years older.
and most importantly
H/ I would totally look like my dad. And in case you're wondering, no, that would not be a good thing.
I'm so happy that I've been there/done that already in my life and that I can now look at these things logically.
I think I'll just live vicariously through Emma and enjoy her new look and keep my old look.
Thanks to everyone for your comments to yesterday's blog. They meant a lot. Really.
'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and extra hugs to anyone who is feeling stressed out.
