The Bad Hair Day Blues

Posted by

Grab a microphone and sing along if you know what it’s like to have the Bad Hair Day Blues!

Maybe your alarm didn’t sound,

or the humidity is 98% percent,

Your bangs refused to lay down

or your hair dryer was on the fritz,

Whatever the cause, whatever the reason,

Even if your outfit’s on point from your dress to your shoes,

None of that matters when

You’ve got the Bad Hair Day Blues.

At first you try to fix it with all your hairstyle powers,

but then you realize the only thing you could do

would be to stick your head back in the shower,

and at that point there’s no time for a hairdo re-do,

Because you can’t be late one more time, your boss said.

So you grit your teeth and slap on extra lipstick,

Cause no matter how much you try to re-arrange that mess on your head,

you’ll just have to accept that today’s bad hair ain’t gonna change a lick.

So you ignore the out-of-place curl.

You try not to think about the frizz on the side of your face,

And your day goes okay, despite a few funny looks from that mean girl,

But you smile at her cause someday she’ll need some grace,

And you discover that even though your hair looks affright

You’re still pretty cute, and you’re still alright.

So, come on you gals with the not-so-perfect hair,

Let’s kick those blues to the curb,

Focus on what matters and set your mood straight.

Today can be great, even if your hair ain’t!

Every time my mom comes to visit she enters the door with brown paper grocery bags hanging from both arms, a 13x9 pan tucked into one arm, and she’s also got my dad loaded down with full sacks and random items. Inside the bags are things she’s seen at the store that she, “just knew one of us would [...]

I Can't...My Kid Has Practice

“I Can’t . . . My Kid Has Practice.” Sound familiar? With three boys who’ve been involved in basketball, baseball, soccer, football, track, swimming, piano lessons, guitar lessons, and drama teams, I’ve had to say that phrase a time or two. I remember sitting in a lawn chair grading papers at football practices. I remember little brothers getting coated [...]
