Being brave

I know some people have problem with hair growth on their heads. This has never been a problem for me. My hair grows and it grows fast. When my son was born I just let it grow. When I cut it I cut of decimeters at the time and it was still always too long. When you go running at least three times a week, it's a trouble. Not to mention if you exercise at least 2 times besides that.

So, about two months ago I cut it off. I went to a local hairdresser. She couldn't believe her ears. I wanted to cut it off. During the long hour it took her to complete the task, she kept repeting how brave I was. It's not the first time: I've cut off my hair four times by now and it's always the same story. As a woman, you're brave if you cut off your hair.

Today, the same thing. I wanted it really short in the back. She wouldn't co operate. I kept explaining I wouldn't kill her if she did what I wanted. I explained that I'd had much much shorter hair before. She didn't believe me. I tried again explaining what I wanted. Then she burst into all smiles: Oh, like Victoria Beckham. (I'm not exactly reading the tabloids, so my insite in the question is non existing but after her producing a magazine I could confirm that this was what I wanted.) Then, it was suddenly OK and she started cutting. So, being brave as a woman is cutting your hair short using a style no modern celebrity is using. That is Woman's lib for 2007...

Jag fick inte klippa mig förra gången heller. Min frissa sa att det är långt hår som gäller i sommar, vare sig man sportar eller inte. Jag gick naturligvis på det...och här sitter man i ponny tail och blir behandlad på jobbet som en lite flicka... det är jobbigt att vara tjej i denna gubbiga värld ;-)

Men jag vill absolut få se en bild på nya Anna - the new look a like Victoria Beckham ;-)

Att det ska vara så svårt att förstå:

Om man som man (eller kvinna) - som de flesta män (och en del kvinnor) - tycker om att titta på kvinnor, så vill man ju så klart se så mycket kvinna som möjligt. Då är ju bara en massa hår i vägen! Bort med håret - fram med kvinnan!!

enligt fnattens logik borde jag alltså gå upp i vikt - more woman for the audience

Men, hallååååå.......
jag arbetar ju för farbror s...en och det är ruskigt farligt att titta på dagisbilder på datorn!! Hela datorsystemet kan ju bli utsatt för en anfall... Ni kan ju bara tänka er när massor av treåringar kommer springande genom koppartråden, ruskigt.. Eller är det bara Telia som äger koppartråden?? Då borde den ju vara säker..

Du får maila ett foto istället.
