On Wearing Curlers

Twenty-five years we've been married. Still, every time I walk out of the bathroom with curlers in my hair, he laughs. And laughs.

Twen-ty fiiiiive long years of curler laughter.

Is this hilarious to you? OK, I leave the sides down, which is weird. Maybe mildly amusing, but not gut-busting.

One time, when I was a teenager, I was watching a Merv Griffin show on which Burt Reynolds was a guest. He was jokingly complaining about long it took Loni Anderson to prepare herself to go out on a date. At the end of the story, Burt said, "But when she walks out looking that spectacular, how can you argue?" I have always remembered that corny 80s story and remind Jorge of the wisdom of Burt quite often.

But really ... honestly ... isn't the hilarity worth this: my Derek Zoolander "Blue Steel" look of modeling intensity? That man of mine needs to learn to appreciate me like Burt did Loni!

Don't forget to come back and link up this Thursday for sharing your tree and special ornament(s)!

You look way better in curlers than anyone should. Jorge is just a clueless male. :-)

At least the curlers coordinate with your lipstick. : )

I haven't used curlers in years. Maybe I should. I could sure use some puffiness in my hair cause it's so flat & straight.
