coup de jour

I thought "coup de jour" was quite a good title for a post about my haircut later today. Wrong. It's perfect. The dictionary's third definition says, "Coup: a contusion caused by contact of the brain with the skull at the point of trauma. Compare with contrecoup." Of course, "contrecoup" is not in the dictionary, but I'm pretty sure it means, "No, I don't think I'll get my hair cut today after all."

I remember when mothers and hairdressers conspired to convince us that cutting your hair made it grow faster. That's why they had all the nuts; they had clever, squirrelly logic. It's sad to think that's all it took to get us into the chair. Gawd! Are kids these days as stupid as we were? Probably not. Come to find out, it was a luxury.

Will I or won't I? Should I or shouldn't I? Should. Shouldn't. Will... Won't..... Such a quandry! But for a good (enough) reason; my hair hasn't been cut, 'cept for one ill-advised just-an-inch, in almost 3 years. If I crank my neck back far enough, it goes past my waist. I'm in my second hippiehood.

But it's time to brush my teeth and go. Think I'll play some dirge CD in the car on my way over. The Dead comes to mind. Interesting aside: my hair cutter's name is Gracie. Mary Grace Murphy. Saints preserve us!...

Still, at this price point rolex replica sale could have a been a small, but neat touch of added attention, that would have worked well with the watches store bloating on the dial. The replica watches uk and hour markers are bi faceted, which should provide a play of light and some visual interest on the replica watches sale sandblasted platinum dial. Too often manufacturers compromise legibility with hands that are just a tad too short or too long, a minor qualm rolex submariner replica more aesthetic than practical in nature. This is because the dial is round, the bezel is cushion shaped, and the case itself is tonneau, with wide lugs that integrate directly into the bracelet. I know for certain that the way the Link appears on the wrist is very different than previous replica watches and this will make some fans a bit standoffish at first. To those people, I would urge patience and let the new design grow on them. This replica watches has much more interest with unusual features and things going on with the dial.
