ABOUT ME

About me: I'm a 40-something mother to a pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our tween Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler Cam, and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). I'm a freelance graphic designer and writer.

Is it cheating if I just touch it for a second?

I really needed a night out. Even Junior, who is normally “Play with my trains, Mommy! Play with my trains, Mommy!” said, “Go to a bar and have a drink, Mom, you deserve it.”

Such a sweet toddler.

So last night I met my friend Jenna and her friend at a bar. Jenna’s friend was a man, and he had thick, wavy hair. Somehow I ended up sitting between them. Somehow I fought the urge to run my fingers through his thick, wavy hair all night. I kept catching glimpses of it out of the corner of my eye. It was vibrating on his head like some kind of vixenous cabana boy, one that cried, “Squeeze me, baby! I’m yours!”

He caught me staring—he even offered to let me touch his head—but I knew that once I started I would have embarked on a long and frenzied journey, one that involved joyous screeching and people staring.

God, I miss having thick, wavy hair in my life.

Sometimes when Chuck and I are lying in bed I arrange my hair so it's covering his forehead; then I caress it—just so I can pretend for a moment that I’m with someone who has hair in which I can frolic.

Ok, I’m totally kidding. Chuck and I don’t lounge in bed enough for me to play Twister with our heads. But you get the point. Instead of this



I’d just like to have this for a day



I’d also like to not be so hung over right now. But at least they make Tylenol for that.

P.S. Chuck, I'm sorry about this post. If you'd wear your damn Halloween wigs more than once a year we could get through this together. Baby.

My husband (58) drives his younger brothers crazy 'cause he still has all his hair. It's still thick too, albeit quite grey. His brothers, 53 and 51 are both bald. Heh heh.

Now lately I've been thinking that bald is quite sexy. . . and my husband has a full head of hair. . .

At 55, I choose to find thick, wavy hair a frill I can live without -- along with visible hipbones, an ass that doesn't cast a shadow and a single chin.

"Go to a bar and have a drink, Mom, you deserve it.” Hilarious!!! Love it! Sounds like you could use a Time Out for Theta Mom Tursday! :)

I play with hair all day long, so it's a nice vacation to have a balding boyfriend lol!

Mad Woman said...

Thick wavy hair is something my husband is blessed with, but honestly it costs us a fortune in hair cuts because he won't let me anywhere near it anymore. Wimp.

And no...it's not touching if you just touch it for a minute :-)

Hey, bald guys can be hot. And look at it this way - you probably save a bundle on shampoo.

Poor Chuck - first you complain about his butt surgery and now his balding head. Let Chuck know that I retired my man card a long time ago, so if he needs an extra one to help with the shame, I'll send it his way.

But you know it would never last only a second. So yes... yes it could be cheating. ;P

"Go to the bar and have a drink mom!" That's priceless, thanks for the belly laugh.

I can go either way on the hair thing. I love guys with great hair whether long or short, it just has to look good on them. But, then, there's nothing like running your fingers over a soft, smooth, bald head either. As long as it's completely bald. If a guy is balding he should just shave it all. It looks better.

I'm so glad I just found your blog!! I love it!! So funny!!

Funny about the hair thing. For about 3 years before I started dating my husband all my boyfriends were bald. Hmmmm maybe I was sick of their shiny heads reflecting sunbeams in my eyes and I didnt realize it...

My husband's got a pretty good head of hair, bristly not wavy though. But I do worry about my boys. Both my grandfather on my mother's side and my father are bald. I hope they enjoy their hair while they have it.

My hubby has a thick head of hair, but he gets irritated with the upkeep and ends up getting it cut really, really short. Or he shaves it off to really short. I keep telling him I like it much better when it's a little longer than what he gets it cut, but he rarely listens. Sometimes, though, he does let it grow a bit - like during the winter. Come on winter! :)

Oh, sorry...I made this comment all about me! If it'll make you feel any better, you can come run your fingers through my hubby's hair during the winter months when he lets it get longer...no mullet, I promise! ;)

I hear that bald is apparently in these days.

I'm a hair girl myself. On top anyway.;)
