An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Curl.

I was at the Mall in Courtenay today.

(Yes, Courtenay - I was slumming.)

As I'm walking through the mall, a lady passes by, and I can't help but look. She's dressed in upscale stuff, and everything below her neck seems like it's all in order.

Yet she has this mound of curlers (covered with a hairnet) piled on top of her head. I was confused to say the least.

If you care enough about your appearance to resort to curlers, why would you go out in public with them still in? I mean, the fact that you are using styling tools means that you are aware that others look at you and may judge your presentation. So why on earth would you not take them out before you go anywhere in public?

(I might add that this mall doesn't have a barber shop or salon, so it's not like she was shopping while waiting for the 'do to set.)

Is it just one of those female things I might not understand? I'm also willing to accept that it's a Courtenay thing - what happens in Courtenay stays in Courtenay.

Or maybe I'm just missing out on the next big fad.

Has anyone seen my hairnet?

  1. Uh, yeah. 1989 called, and they've found your hairnet; it was with your nametag. And you're late for brauer.
