Please let me touch it.....

( wonder how many strange and exciting people will bisit this bog due to that title...)

Lastnight we had a 'thing' to attend at Nicoles school. It was the 10th anniversary of the school, and they had invited three politicians ( I won't say who) to give an educational summit. This was being talked up like it was going to be a big deal. To me all I heard was boooorrrriiiinnnggggg....

The kindergartners and first graders showed us they knew the Pledge of Allegiance, waving their little flags, hand over heart. The second, third and fourth graders then sang America the Beautiful and the LifeSchool Song. All of the little preformances were really cute. Then they were all sent out and the Q and A session was about to begin.

Thats when she showed up...A man and woman hurried in and found the two seats right in front of Chris and I. I was trying desperately to concentrate on the speech of the superintendent, and the Public Relations lady, and the politicians. But the impeccably dressed lady in front of me did not permit me this pleasure.

She had a ponytail. A normal , sleeked back pony tail of her pretty brown hair. Supposedly not a hair out of place, or so she thought. And this little clump of hair distracted me the entire night. She had obviously pulled her hair back and one little clump got caught in the actual band and was sticking out. I know there are new styles where that happens, but this was not one of them. If you looked at her from the front, you could not see it.

All I wanted to do was reach out and pull that little clump free of its green prison and smooth the rest of her hair out. O.M.G. it drove me nuts. I faintly remember what the politicians were saying and I think Chris commented to me once or twice, but all I wanted to do was fix that chicks pony tail. obviously she did not take another mirror and check the back of her hair do.

I actually had to come close to sitting on my hands...it was that bad.

Has anything like that happened to any of you?

LOL!!!! Oh my yes!!!! I can't stand to see someone's tag sticking out from behind their neck. IT MAKES ME CRAZY!!!! I just want to tuck it back in, but obviously you can't go around touching strangers.....good way to get punched out, ya know? Sometimes I'll say something but usually I let it go. But it bugs me for as long as I see them.

So I feel ya.......

btw, how would you know who or how many people "found" you by a blog title???

Oh now you've made ME paranoid. I never look at the back of my hair. And you have many others who would have felt the same way. I'm doomed!

Thank goodness I don't have enough hair for a ponytail, but tags sticking out do bug me and I just usually tell them. I go by the motto, "If I wouldn't want to be caught that way, then tell them so they don't get caught that way." Like when you have spinach or brocolli for lunch and finally go to the restroom after you get home and see you have a big hunk caught between your front teeth, man, why couldn't someone tell me?

Oh yes, I always want to straighten someone's collar, I can't help myself. It is so hard to not reach out and just fix it. Drives me mad.

That pony tail would have driven me crazy. Any little distraction at things like that would have been my focus too. I remember once counting the ceiling tiles in the school auditorium.
Enjoyed your posts.
