After work today, I had a hair appointment. I took the bus from Oakland to Downtown with Drew. We kissed goodbye. He was getting on the Moon bus and going to hang out with Zach to watch the Penguins game. I got on the Crafton bus. When I stepped onto the bus, I tapped the scanner with my Pitt ID. I looked up at the driver. It was the same driver from the day before. I noticed him then and he looked familiar. How do I know this guy and he clearly knows me. I bet I know him from when I used to go to the clubs in station square. I may know him through promoter people, so weird and mind-boggling.
When we approached the Ingram stop, I stood up and held on to the pole. I was getting off after the Ingram stop. I look up at the bus driver and we make eye contact in the mirror. He smiles and I smile back. I was careful not to give the impression that I was interested, but how do I know this guy?
When I arrived at the hair, nail, and tanning salon. I saw Lynn in the back and I told her that I was here for my 6:30 with Kim. She said, “oh okay.” I said, “Do you want to leave? I will watch for tanners, and put them in the bed.” She said, ”really you don’t mind?” I said, “No take the evening off.” She laughed and thanked me. I took a seat in Leanne’s chair and took off the polish on my toes. I painted my toes a peachy orange color. Then I decided to pop off my acrylics. I was missing one of my index fingers, and we already spent so much money booking our attractions. I just figured I would take them off and save some money. I do like them, but I can’t keep up with them. I hate how they look after a while when they needed to be filled. Leanne might be pissed, but whatever.
When Kim arrived, she started on my hair. Her son’s baseball team lost the game. She thanked me for being cool about her being late. I said, “not a problem.” She heavy highlighted my hair. I wanted more blonde. I buffed my nails while the highlights were setting.
After a while under the dryer, she took the foils out and washed my hair. I was so excited to see it. When she was brushing out my hair, it already looked so much lighter. I just felt like my hair was thin and stringy. I had her cut my hair to my collarbone. I was taking a risk of getting it short, but I needed a change. I wanted to feel lighter. She then trimmed up my bangs. I hoped Drew was going to be okay with this. He does like my hair long.
After my hair was dry and styled, I decided to go tanning. I set the bed for 20 mins. I knew that was probably too long, but we will see. I shut the door, stripped down, and lotioned up. I laid in the bed. I shut the lid. I took a little nap. I definitely felt myself falling asleep. It’s one of those sleep where your body jumps, and you wake up. I sleep so soundly in a tanning bed. 🙂
At one point, I felt like I was getting too much my back was starting to feel too hot. I got out of the bed, shut the lid so the light wasn’t so bright. I got dressed and turned the bed off. Then, I cleaned the bed and shut the light off. I walked back to the front and paid for my hair and rescheduled my next appointment.
On my way home, I stopped at my parents to see my dogs and eat cereal. I was hungry, but I didn’t want to cook dinner, or stop and get fast food. When I arrived at my parents, I teased my dad about the Penguins and Capitals game. My dad was born and raised in Washington DC. He loves his Washington Redskins, Capitals, and Nationals. I cheer for the Redskins occasionally, just to make him happy. Louie ran up the walkway to greet me at the gate. He is the sweetest dog ever, our first boy dog, but he is so sweet. I picked him up and kissed him and held him. He doesn’t like being held really, but I do it anyway. I walked halfway down the walkway before I set him down. Paris was on the back porch. It was too wet for her to greet me. She doesn’t like when it rains. I greeted her when I walked into the house.
After I ate two bowls of cereal and talked to my parents for a bit. I left I was ready to go home. When I arrived back to my house, I showered and got into some PJs. I sat down to watch Howard’s End. I have been trying to get into this series, simply because it is a British show. I am having a hard time falling in love with it.
After a while, Drew came home. He said he loved my hair. He does like my hair longer though. I am glad he likes it. It will grow eventually I told him. We talked about Zach and the Penguins.
