To Be Curly or Not To Be Curly, That Is The Question

Dear blog friends: Yiddle's comment to this post is so funny that I have to post them here for ease of read. With answers like hers, I'm thinking I should be asking her a lot more questions!!

Things I've wondered this week.


1. Why is that little yellow butterfly still hanging around my front yard on the 1st of November? Shouldn't this critter be on its way to someplace warm? He missed the senior bus tour to Orlando.

2.If Halloween candy is on sale at Wallymart, does that mean it is half-calorie as well? Only if you share half with me.

3. Is it true, as my granddaughter says, that candy eaten on Fridays has NO calories? Only if you give it ALL to me.

4. Why has my hair suddenly gone curly (after my bout with chemo), and will it eventually straighten out again? family curse, and only if you don't want it to.

5. Can I safely wash a jacket that is 100 percent polyester if its label says "dry clean only"? Depends upon how much the jacket means to you. Also see #6.

6. What kind of crafty project can I make with a piece of lime-green suede leather? gnome shoes. if you leave them out with a nice note the gnome will take care of #5 for you.

7. Did I tell Roger the Handyman to make the cupboard doors on our new bathroom vanity flat? Or did I request a framed surface? the gnome was probably eavesdropping on your conversation. if you leave out some half price halloween candy and a chalkboard he may answer that question too.

Does the curly hair bother you? I think it is cute.

Just wanted to pop in and say that your hair looks wonderful. Some women pay money for that sort of hairdo, and yours was a perk, I guess. Perks are good. :)

My hair is curlier because it is short. After the bristles grew out, it was pretty wild and wooly, but as it grows out, it becomes the wavey stuff that I am used to. I'm with the others...it looks very nice, and you know, there are women who pay money for those curls!

Why am I at this computer? Well. I...er...um...look up in the sky...shiny...uh...is that a planet?

I think the curly hair looks great! In fact, I love the ultra-short "after chemo" hairstyles and think many women look so good they should keep it short! What about you? How long do you normally keep your hair?

I WISH nos. 2 & 3 were true!

I've seen that star or planet you're talking about. As for the green fabric-how about a frog prince? Or a little Christmas tree, or a green cat?

Your hair looks great.

I read your story about Halloween. I was always so disappointed when an old apple was tossed in my bag~Debra

9. that's not a planet. it's a hole in the blanket we are using for the fort roof.
10. giving me something to do while i take a 5 minute break to eat my cheese and crackers from the vending machine in an attempt to restore my working-too-late brain cells

Thanks, Yiddle. You're a lot wiser than I am. (big, big smile)

Sounds like stalling to me.

I LOVE the curls! They make the shine even shinier.

Those are very funny answers.

I like your hair ... wonder if the curliness will last.
