(I don’t even know if that title is grammatically correct, but just go with it.)
We all know that I have some pretty fantastic hair.
I know it’s annoying to hear me say it, but when I have only a few things going for me (hair, kids, husband, sparkling personality), I tend to err on the side of bragging. Again, I know it’s very annoying.
But I got my payback for all of my blatant, annoying bragging.
It started when I had a stellar hair day on Sunday. Tropical Storm Debby made my hair so curly and cute and fluffy, I had to share it with the internet.
While we were at dinner so Patrick could have his birthday cheeseburger and beer, I uploaded these two photos to Instagram:
“I’d say my hair likes Tropical Storms. #BlatantBragging”
“My hair loves the rain.”
I told you; I was major-bragging.
When we got home, I heard something outside in the rain that was annoying the crap out of me, so I went out to investigate. While I was leaning over the patio to fish out the plastic bag on which a steady stream of rainwater was falling, I felt a big rain drop fall on my head.
Satisfied with my prowess to stop the annoying sound, I went back inside and sat down at the table to play the game we had given Patrick for his birthday. (P.S. Zooloretto is a must-buy for board game-loving families.)
About 30 seconds later, I felt that “big rain drop” that had fallen on my head, only to reach back and feel something scaly and LIVING.
It was not a rain drop that had landed on my head; it was a lizard.
A FLIPPING LIZARD WAS IN MY HAIR.
At least it color-coordinated with my hair color.
And I gave all of your paybacks to the lizard when I set it free.
