You know, there is always adventure around here! 🙂
I went for my annual haircut.
Now just hold your horses! How do you know haircuts aren’t an adventure? I haven’t told it yet!
AS I was saying…! I went for my annual haircut.
I know. Once a year might be more than is strictly necessary here in the boondocks, but I like to keep somewhat properly groomed so the bears don’t think I’m one of them.
But the lovely salon girl and I seem to have had a breakdown in communication.
I said, “Shoulder length so I can still put it in a ponytail when I go running.”
She apparently heard, “Earlobe length, or even a little higher if you feel like it.”
An easy mistake. Anyone could make it.
Shoulder-length. Temple fringe.
They sound practically the same.
So, yeah, my hair is pretty short, and not by any feat of brushing, combing or hair product is it going to be in a ponytail for a while 🙂
Luckily hair grows 🙂 eventually 🙂
Also luckily, an unexpected haircut outcome is nothing a little Something Chocolate can’t fix! 🙂 Hmm… what should we have today? How about…
MILKSHAKES! I, of course, opt for chocolate, but for those of you who have trouble facing it at this hour of the morning (Julie R-Z! :)) I’m offering strawberry as well, which is made of fruit and that’s good for you 🙂
Now then, let’s get comfy for Would You Read It.
Today’s pitch comes to us from Cynthia who says, “I’m a writer, a mother and an animal lover on the road to publication. I write poems, young adult and picture books. Visit my website at Random Thought at www.randomthoughts-myblog.blogspot.com You can find me there every Tuesday. “
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: A Noise In The Dark
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 5 and up)
The Pitch: Nicky’s closet is making so much noise that it’s scaring him half to death. So much so that he’s clutching at his chest. His mother says its just a branch against a window pane, but Nicky knows what lurks beyond is so much more then rain. Come with Nicky into the dark, and tame the fears that are hidden in the heart.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Cynthia is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to my hair growing. That’s probably like watching a pot of water and waiting for it to boil, though… 🙂
Have a great day, everyone… you know, whatever blows your hair back! 🙂
