This morning I had my dreaded hair coloring appointment. I don’t mind going in every 5 weeks for my haircut but I just hate getting it colored. This morning it was a little different. We were alone for one. Normally there are other people either before me or come early and are there when I’m getting finished up or the phone is always ringing off the hook. There is really nothing nicer than sitting in the salon all covered in foil looking like the tin man for a person’s ego!
But Linda, my hairdresser has been very preoccupied. I’ve written about her before but just haven’t given her name. Her youngest daughter and “last child left at home” was going off to college and she had a really rough time of it. But today, she was back to her old self and I’ll tell you, we really laughed and it was so much fun. The time flew by. I didn’t like the way she styled my hair but that’s not her fault. I don’t like the way anyone “fixes” my hair except for me. Anyway…..
Why is it that women can get this way with each other? Do you all know what I mean? When I was on my bowling league it was like that. We would rake our husbands over the coals and laugh so hard we couldn’t even bowl. It’s all so innocent. We are sarcastic and quite frankly, bitches. But it’s all done in good humor and it’s all mainly joking around. There were times we got to laughing so hard and trying to bowl that when I got home my cheeks hurt as well as my side and back. I would try to tell my husband what was so funny but I guess you had to be there because he didn’t get it. Linda and I were like that this morning. Almost like young girls laughing at stupid things.
Do men do this when they’re alone with other men? Men and women don’t seem to act like this in mixed company. Why is that? Maybe men don’t talk about personal things. Just what do men talk about when for example, bowling. Do they just talk about bowling or do men make any small talk at all? I’d love to know.
I know when Nikki, Sue and I get together and we’re alone out on the deck, we can laugh like this. I have a few good friends who I laugh like this with too but for some reason, I don’t laugh like I do with men around as I do when it’s just the girls out together.
What do you think? Do you really laugh only really hard with a person of the same sex as you?
