Quick Announcement 

Hey friends. I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting regularly. The whole no computer and no internet thing has made posting difficult but all that is going to change soon. I have a few new series in mind for all of you including a post coming Friday on the first time I celebrate Purim “traditionally.”

I hope you all enjoy. 

Stay tuned.

Life with purple hair

Its official, and has been for a few months now, we live in the future. As you know the future is a pretty weird place, everyone wears spandex or their clothes inside out (Doc Brown said so). So it only makes sense that I should be allowed to have an “extravagant” hair color, and I have for the last month and a half.

Why wouldn’t I? Why shouldn’t I?

Having purple hair has been fun. Let me tell you a few things that I’ve learned while having wild hair.

1) If you’re weird people lose sight of personal boundaries.

Every pregnant woman complains about strangers touching them without asking for permission. Well, it is the same if you have wacky hair. I was at the mall yesterday and at the checkout a woman just reached across the counter touching a clump of my hair. Most people just comment but some, some just decide that its totally okay to just touch my hair.

2) If they have nothing nice to say they really won’t say anything at all

This has not been my experience in many cases but it has been in this one small piece.

The people who do like my hair mention it all the time, I love it. Compliments are the best. The people who do not like it just give me an boggled eyes look and turn away, or make sarcastic comments about my “hair growing naturally” that way.  Don’t try to be sarcastic with me, I always win.

3) Notoriety is not always good.

My Jurassic Park car and purple hair make me pretty distinctive. This means that people who don’t know me but have  seen me feel like its okay to talk to me. It isn’t that I am shy, I just don’t have the energy to waste talking with strangers. I’m an introvert, I have to ration that energy.

It also means that if I am a jerk I can be picked out of a crowd easily. I don’t walk out of my house planning on being a jet!m but sometimes I am.

4) It’s better to have fun than to be professional.

Okay, I get it, living and paying bills is an important part of life. If you’re not professional you don’t always have the means to pay your bills. My only question is, why do we find extravagant hair unprofessional? Having fun as who you are does not change your intelligence. It just means you stand out and isn’t that what we all want anyway?

Well, those are my thoughts.
