Of course I can only be referring to the length of the 8 hour work day. And how utterly painful it is to stand on your feet for 7.5 hours straight. I think my feet may actually fall off. We shall have an experiment in the making...
And now for a segment (very short, of course) I'd like to call the "Creeper of the Day" award. Today's creeper stars an older guy (think upper 30's, late 40's) who said to me, "So, McDonald's must be where all the pretty girls hang out, huh?" And then he smiled. Creepily. Good job, creeper man, for making it into my blog. You can now be famous in cyberspace. I look forward to many more days of working at McDonald's and discovering the "Creeper of the Day". (And trust me, there is at least one every day).
So a few days ago I decided to man up and have a little experiment. This experiment was named "Anna dyes her own hair". I figured, by the ripe old age of 23 I should be able to do some things for myself. Like dye my own hair. Time to be a little more independent! So I went on a journey to Wal-mart, picked out hair dye, and headed home.
Once at home I started to get a little nervous... What if my hair fell out? What if it turned a hideous color? What was I thinking?!?
But I took a deep breath-- looked in the mirror-- and said goodbye to my faded color. What follows is a picture account of my experience...
I opened up the box of hair dye, mixed up the color, and began to apply it all over my head. At first I started with the roots-- and then I quickly abandoned my mission to be professional and just used my hands to spread the dye everywhere. I also used a comb to help. The picture above is me after coating my entire head with the dye... I was a little worried about the entire process-- but it was a little too late to change my mind.
The real victory came only after I rinsed out the dye and styled my hair. It was only then I could see how good of dye job I had done. I felt very victorious. And now that I can dye my own hair I can keep it up on a regular basis (perhaps every 6 weeks like the box recommends). I am pretty excited! Perhaps I am finally becoming an adult!
Alright, this blog has gotten way too long and a little topic crazy: Sore feet, creepers, and hair dye. I blame it all on the lack of caffeine I've ingested this week!
