I have a pony tail now.
Or I have one when I want to make one. It’s 2 1/2 inches long so I only really want it when I am dying of oppressive heat. Which is (a) when I am in Nashville and (b) when I am rooting round along the back property line, yanking out poison ivy vines.
Nashville was a real swamp, weatherwise, last week. My glamorous lifestyle will take me back there next week. In between, I’ll be pulling weeds and chasing a little dog around who is determined to snatch away every manor of shoe, towel and paper he can get to ahead of me. Which is all of them. this is an activity that creates a lot of extra heat and so I will be practicing my pony tail skills every day from now on.
Modern pony tail technology is helping me to achieve my cool and breezy new hairdo. I’ve got 24 little black bands, 4 hair combs, 2 hair clips, a Teeni Hairdini which I haven’t tried out yet, and a baseball cap with a hole in the back. I was thinking maybe I’d get one of those stretchy rings of polyester hair to put around my pony tail to beef it up, or possibly some dome hair.
All ideas are possible and still under consideration at this time.
