Sad But True

I'm on Day 2 of the "thank not crank" bracelet. I went to get my haircut this afternoon and told my stylist that I wanted something new. Then I told her about the bracelet and that I can't complain about it for 20 days, so she could do something radical!

She didn't go TOO radical, but it is definitely a different style and so far, I like it!

The Sad but True part is that as I sat in the chair I had NOTHING to talk to her about because I was trying to NOT complain about life. That reveals alot to me about what I usually talk about when I'm there. Yikes!

Hmmm... yes. I just got my Thanks not Cranks bracelet, but I haven't had the opportunity to have a long enough conversation that would test it. Methinks this weekend will be telling.

Oh dear. time to get some positive material! I tend to tell he said, she said stories and make people laugh.

Catherine -- the shampoo girl asked me if I have to move it in response to complaining that isn't vocal...I said the voices in my head make me move it more than the voice coming out my mouth!

Thom -- nice try. New do will show later. Gotta go get the brakes fixed on my car right now. Sigh

Q -- yes, well we had just been there the other day for the daughter, so all the good material had been used up! Ha ha...

Interesting about the bracelet! I don't think all complaining is bad -- sometimes we're just talking our way toward solutions or acceptance, and that wouldn't really count as 'crank', right? (can't help looking for a workaround LOL)

Congratulations on the new do -- double congratulations on *liking* it!!

Or, did you just say that so you wouldn't be complaining? ROFL

I hear where you are coming from. Sometimes it is VERY hard not to complain.
