No one lives forever. I am always surprised by people who act as though they are going to never die. Live each day, as though it might be your last. Don't put off till someday, the joys you might have today.
My hair has never been this long. Not even when I was in high school in the 1970's and long hair was in style, was my hair this long. It has been about 11 months since my last haircut. I am getting close to the creepy old man ponytail. I can't see the risk, of sitting inches from someone, who is within inches of 10-20 people everyday, just for a haircut. It will wait. Then I may do something equally radical in the other direction. I have to admit, longer hair, is harder to care for.
I have started looking carefully at the photos I take, digging out the books, and identifying the birds I am seeing. A Black-Capped Chickadee, a Sharp Shinned Hawk, there are many more to look up. If I learn a couple of month, that will be 24 more than I knew before.
Social distancing, has led me to understand another quirk of my personality. I am uncomfortable in crowds, and long have been. I mentioned this to the hubby, and he was kind of "oh you finally noticed that!" I avoid crowds. When I have to be in them, I stay around the edges, and often look for a fast way out. This is nothing new, when I first started traveling by air frequently in the early 1990's, I would often stay in my seat until the plane was nearly empty before exiting. I usually took a window seat, and I would just let them all go before getting up. (I now want to board first, and usually sit near the front so I can get out fast.) This year, with most people avoiding crowds, has been a joy for me. Interestingly small groups, 3, 4, 5 people don't bother me.
What random thoughts have you had this week?
I will just agree with you about always looking for an exit. Please don't get a creepy old man grey ponytail.ReplyDelete
Should I color it?Delete
If so, what color?
Random thoughts from the week:ReplyDelete
I haven’t had alcohol in 3 weeks. Also, I can’t remember the last time I had grape soda.
No Cosmos, no Martinis, HELP!Delete

I hate crowds and always have; a small group I can handle.
"where can I rent a steamroller to crush some MAGAts?" - random thought
You are so sweet, until you are pissed off.Delete
YOU GOT IT! when pissed off, I am a raging bitch!Delete
My best friend and his partner have been cutting each other's hair since this started. At first it was a little choppy but now you can't really tell the difference. I on the other hand, went back to the hairdresser over the summer but just canceled my appointment for a week ago because the numbers are just to high here and it's too dangerous. I might have to start cutting it myself again.ReplyDelete
I am thinking ponytail!Delete
I've had many random thoughts this week like How do vampires always look so neat and tidy if they can’t see themselves in the mirror?ReplyDelete
Deaf people probably don’t understand why farts are funny.
Sometime in the future, someone will say your name for the last time.
Why do we eat pizza from the inside out?
And if you get scared half to death twice, do you die?
I should cut back on the gin.

Vampires are not real, we can't explain Mitch McTurtle.
Deaf people probably don’t understand why farts are funny. They can probably smell and feel them, so yes.
Sometime in the future, someone will say your name for the last time. Yes, we are but dust in the wind.
Why do we eat pizza from the inside out? It is softer on that side.
And if you get scared half to death twice, do you die? Nope, I spent 45 minutes listening an MD/JD talk about the legal definition of death on Friday, brain death does not stop people from talking.
I should cut back on the gin. Hmm, that is a hard one.
One could argue my entire thought process is 'random'; it rivals Leopold Bloom.ReplyDelete
You are so funDelete
