Where Do You Learn That Stuff?

I walk into Shaft’s office and he hits me with that question ….

“What are you talking about ?”, I reply. Pretty much not clued in from where he was coming.

“That make-up and hair stuff you do, I mean, when I have a question about how to repair my washer or something, I get the specs, find out what I need and fix it, but that stuff you’re doing, I’m guessing girls learn that from their moms, and well, it’s not like you did,” was his rather thoughtful observation.

“It’s not easy, there’s a lot of trial and error, and

I have a ton of make-up that I’ll NEVER use that looked right in the store, but worthless once I got it home. Really, It’s mainly just practice,” was my simplistic reply.

And we let it go at that. Well, not actually, he then commented on my “hair” in my pictures I posted here. Apparently I’m “doing it different” from what he remembers.

I’m like, “what ??”

And he’s like, “Well, other times your hair has more curl to it.”

So I reply, “Dude, I had just woken up in those pictures, I was still in my pj’s, I threw on some lipstick and gloss for quicky pics and that’s it, no make-up, hair up except for the one were I combed it out, I was just goofing off ….. it takes time to make it all “curly” and I rarely take that time.”

“Oh, I guess,” was his clueless and disinterested reply. He had already tuned me out.

Welcome to the world of guys just assuming there’s no effort involved in looking the look …. and I take his comment about how my hair is now “different” as an insult !! Bastard!! 🙂
