Went to see Dr Birhiray yesterday—that’s pronounced Beer-Hurray, in case this is your first visit here. The appointment was pretty uneventful, except that I had Hubster take a new picture of me and Dr B, since in the old one I’m bald. Unfortunately, I forgot the camera, so Hubster used his cell phone to take the picture, and doesn’t know how to get it off of there. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post it sometime in the near future.
It also occurred to me the other day that I haven’t uploaded a picture of myself recently. After several months of attempting to straighten my hair, it’s finally gotten to the point that I think I can walk around with it curly without looking too scary. Or maybe it’s just that my slothful nature got the best of me and I couldn’t handle having a hairdo that was so doggone involved for crying out loud. And besides, I’ve always thought it would be fun to have an afro, so why not?
At any rate, my ‘do these days is kind of a cross between Mickey Dolenz from The Monkees, and Richard Simmons. Like, you know, old school Richard Simmons, not middle aged Richard Simmons with the ‘fro over thing. (Though he’s got a mighty impressive fork, dontcha think?)
That’s the look I’ve got going.
Hubster keeps saying things like, “Your hair’s kinda crazy.” (He doesn’t adjust very quickly to change, you know.) And I’m all like, “Yeah, I just made it that way—I like it!” But, otherwise, I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it. I think it’s just too large and in charge to ignore, and really, what kind of jerk is going to be hatin’ on a cancer girl’s 1 year post-chemo hair growth? So, pretty much anything anybody says is going to be positive.
My curly hair and I will be reporting for surgery tomorrow morning at 6:30 AM. Ugh. 6:30. Without the benefit of coffee. That’s just wrong. I certainly hope Dr Grasee is a morning person. I’m sure not—I can’t even complete a sentence first thing in the morning, let alone perform surgery. Add that to my top ten list of reasons I’m not a doctor. Right alongside the fact that I’m the absolute least sympathetic person you know. Really. Most of my appointments would consist of me telling my patients to suck it up. “What? Your arm hurts? Well, it’s not bleeding, so suck it up.”
Fortunately for me, my doctors are all way nicer than I am.
