Sandra 0 - Conditioner 3
Well good gravy, I suppose I was not meant to use conditioner on my hair this month.
It all started when I ran out of conditioner, I wrote it on my grocery list and set off to the commissary as I always do on payday.
I was almost done with the shopping and I headed to the bathroom aisle, you know, where they have the shampoos and conditioners and soaps and all that fun stuff.
What the heck is it with the way they pack these shelves? It can get so darn confusing trying to buy something and I'm one of those gals who shops price wise, I don't just go for name brand, other than a few items here and there, I don't really care what they're named as long as they do the job.
But after sitting there for what seemed an eternity, I finally settled on Suave, reached down, grabbed the shampoo and conditioner and dropped it in the shopping cart.
Didn't think about it again until last night, when I stood in the shower with my hair soaking wet, freshly shampooed and in need of conditioner. (I really should have paid attention when I put the groceries away).
Anyway, I reached for the conditioner, poured it into my hand and my mouth dropped open, wait a second this is not conditioner. Nope, it was shampoo, I grabbed two bottles of shampoo, but I could have sworn I was looking at the conditioner. Has that ever happened to you? You are looking at one thing and grab something completely different? Or not, is it just me? Oy!
So anyway, now I'm irritated because I don't have conditioner, so I went without and the thing is I have such thick hair that I really do need to get that conditioning in.
Nevermind, this morning I set off on foot to the Base BX, I did a bit of shopping, some more postcards, new mascara and some body lotion AND conditioner. Yes I actually grabbed conditioner, and stared at it and stared at it some more and kept looking into the shopping basket making sure it was indeed conditioner. Great, I finally got it.
Paid for my stuff, left the store and went and got my hair cut.
Walked all the way home, got to the house and well....you know, when you go to the hair dresser and cut your hair you just HAVE to go home and wash it again and style it the way you want, right? Or again, is it just me? LOL
So anyway, I go to my bathtub and turn the water on and while it warms, I go to the kitchen where I had dropped the shopping bags to get my conditioner.
What the heck? I only have one bag and no conditioner, no body lotion, no mascara. You have GOT to be kidding me. I left it behind, either at the store or at the hair dresser. UGH!
Go ahead and laugh even though at this point I was literally starting to see red. Hahaha
After picking up the kids from school, we all went back to the BX, hubby needed some things and after hearing my story he told me to just pick up another conditioner. Ok I said. We got all the things we needed, paid and headed to the food court. While we were waiting for our order, it suddenly hits me. I didn't buy conditioner.
I mean, really?????? Come on, give this gal a break!
I had just had enough and at this point I actually started laughing because it's just ridiculous. I left the family waiting on the food and ran to the hair dresser but nope, nothing there, I didn't leave anything behind.
Ran into the BX to Customer Service and there was my bag, with my conditioner. Hallelujah, finally.
Needless to say, I just felt defeated, it was downright laughable. So Yeah.....Sandra 0 and Conditioner 3. Hmmmpfh!
Now here's a peak at my haircut. I used to have long hair and then cut it into an A-line Bob and now after a year with it, I'm sick of it and wanted something different.
I just told the hairdresser to do whatever and I think she captured me pretty well, it's cute, it's spunky and it's just totally me. Not that I think I'm cute and spunky, you know. LOL
Here's the back
So what do you think? Does it suit me?
Oh and to make myself feel better over the whole conditioner debacle, I stopped at the used book store at the BX and got myself these three books. Can't wait to read.
