a couple of months ago some friends and i discussed why it is that people so seldom seem to notice when you get a haircut. S was a bit upset none of us had mentioned her cutting her hair that week. N said not to worry, she had taken about 10 cm off at one point and no-one noticed that either. i tried to explain to S that people are used to seeing her in short hair, a few centimetres here and there isn’t really going to get people talking. to N i said that she on the other hand has so long hair that 10 cm is only a fraction. if she was to cut half of it i’m sure everyone would notice.
then i cut 20 cm off my hair and no-one noticed. i had it coming.
and for those of you who happen to see me today, no need to ask what i’ve done with my hair this time. the answer is nothing. for once i have done nothing with it and hence.. i look like the long-lost love child between hermione granger and ron weasly. blimey!
