The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Oct. 3/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one. Have fun!

New, I needed something new. It had been 7 months since I had got my hair cut. I am a pretty low maintenance kind of gal. I don’t like to pay 100’s of dollars on my hair. There are so many other fun things I would rather buy that cost that much. So please don’t fault me, I get my haircut at Great Clips (gasp right) yep! For real! Even my mom is in shock, and awe that her daughter goes to Great Clips. How dare, lol!

So I went in I didn’t want anything drastic as I am growing out my hair. I just need a fresh new feel. So I proceeded to show her my picture of how I wear my hair now…At least on a good day, and when it is not in a baseball hat.

The gal cutting my hair was sweet, and probably no older than my own daughter, and step daughters. She says, “oh yeah like my mom wears her hair”. In an instant I went from feeling good about walking out feeling a sense of new, to feeling old! I thought man I am really getting to that age, 46 the uphill climb. In February I will be 47, I am no longer considered young.

On a positive note, it didn’t get me down. It was just more of a realization of my age. I am older! I am not that young 20 something girl anymore. Also another cool thing at least while at Great Clips which many of my friend’s, and as I mentioned even my mom frown upon she didn’t say, “oh yeah like my grandma wears her hair”. So I walked out feeling pretty good (a little skip in my step) only spending $18 plus a tip for feeling fresh, and new even though I am considered old! 😂 👵🏻
