Today I dried my hair sans hair dryer ...

Posted by Nancy Guppy at 10:08 AM

Man, the dawn, for me, is so slow to break.

My good friend, B, read my blog entry from a few days ago, and one particular line I wrote, "As I was drying my hair it occurred to me..." prompted her to pose this question: "Were you drying your hair with a towel or with a hair dryer?"

Answer: hair dryer. Argh. B then observed that because I already take super short showers, I should shift my focus and concentrate more on areas where I don't naturally conserve.

"Oh, shut up!" I thought.

"Interesting idea," I said aloud.

After we hung up, I spent a number of minutes sputtering defensively to myself, then had to admit that there was a kernel, or perhaps a whole cob, of wisdom in B's "suggestion". So, today I dried my hair sans hair dryer. How does it look? Not so good. At least that's what the bathroom mirror says, although honestly, between you and me, it probably looks no different from any other day. So thanks for the input, B. Seriously. I mean it. Really. I do.

Argh. Baby steps.
