The Weirdest Thing

The weirdest thing happened this morning.

As you can see from my picture, my hair is curly. In fact, it's extremely curly and maybe the picture doesn't even do it justice. Having squiggy hair (my husband's term) comes with it's own set of problems. There's frizz and the constant tangle. I never even use a brush because that is just a mess waiting to happen.

This morning I washed my hair and conditioned it as I always do, squishing the soap all the way to the ends and using my fingers to work the conditioner out. After I turned off the shower, I started at the top of the hair and squeezed the water out with my fingers. When I reached the bottom two inches of hair, I squeezed and winced as something sharp jabbed my finger.

I carefully pulled my fingers through the wet hair again, looking for the offending object and pulled out a small brass safety pin! I must have slept with it there and washed my hair with it there. I don't know how I missed it in the first place and I really don't know how it got there. It really was the weirdest thing and thinking back, I can't even begin to imagine where it came from.

LOL--okay, that's just funny. Melanie was talking about things she finds in her hair as well. And, for what it's worth, I love your curls. I've always wanted curly hair like that. Instead I have very fine, wavy hair that frizzes no matter what I do to it. So sad.

That is funny. My oldest has beautiful curls like that, (they make me feel proud for having produced them) but she's never mentioned finding treasures (dangerous or otherwise). I'll have to ask her. I see you're a writer - I've got a contest for my new book on my blog you might be interested in, if you want to drop by!

Ok - That had me laughing pretty good. That is halarious! I don't even have anymore words for it. It's just that funny!
