Oh. And also thought I should share some funny/awkward moments from work. (I am writing this sitting in my gym clothes. I really am trying to avoid getting there. What else can I blog about. . .)
I did a hair cut on a client the other day who, bless her heart, had this picture of a cut that she wanted. The person owning the haircut was a 5'9, 100 pound supermodel. This woman was, well, not that exact body type. Which is fine. But ya gotta do a hairstyle that accentuates what ya got. But, she insisted. SO we did the cut. During which, she told me many awkward and sad things that I didn't know how to respond to. She seemed pretty unhappy with herself/her life. I was trying to stay lighthearted and cheer her up. She then told me about how her family went on a cruise but she wasn't invited. She finished the story with, "well, my sisters are all so small anyways." This wasn't a small woman. I said, "Oh, I know, I have lots of sisters who just look great no matter what, and I'm like man, I wish I had that body! But oh well, it's all good." She let me go on like that for a minute, then she said, without expression, "I meant that they're all young." Needless to say, I felt pretty stupid. I'm surprised she still tipped me.
Among other client conversations, I did a pedicure on a lady and her friend today. They are both labor and delivery nurses. During that 45 minutes, I got a LOT of information about childbirth and what things look like. I'm scared to say the least. It was an educational experience for me. Enough said.
