Someday I Will Laugh About This, Just Not Today

So God smoted me, karma kicked my ass, whatever it was, a large portion of my hair was burned beyond recognition late Thursday night. My straightener malfunctioned and I didn't realize what was happening until it was too late. It is pretty horrific. There is nothing to be done. You can't un denature proteins. Such is life, and it is my life for six to eight months...It can look okay from a distance if there is enough assorted gels on what is left of it, but the texture, oh the texture. What a way to start my 28th year. I am trying to get over it. I don't have The Cancer, it will grow back. But damn, it sucks. I haven't burst into tears over it in almost 24 hours, so that is progress. We will see how getting ready for work tomorrow goes. For a more humorous look at the incident head here.

Sooooo sorry this happened. From the pic on Bear's blog, I really can't see the damage (if that helps any...probably not). I hope Monday goes okay. This could be the excuse for a chi....or will you give up all heat products for a while?

I have never straightened my hair. I think it must be a young person's thing (I'm 38) kind of like oddly sheared pubic hair. Damn, I feel old.

Good luck with the hair repair!

This story would be much funnier if I had burned off all my pubic hair trying to straighten it. It wouldn't take 6-8 months to grow back either :)
