DYLANism ~ please don’t candy-coat it
Remember several years ago when the cute little words of wisdom used to roll off my oldest daughter’s mouth, which I tried to coin, “DYLANisms“?
Well this old blog has slowed down, partly because these cute little innocent lines just don’t roll off her tongue so much any more.. And I have missed them.
Or have I?
Last Thursday, through a few scheduling snafu’s Dylan ended up having to ride with me to get my haircut. Well she had been talking about getting a summer cut too so I thought why not let her get first salon experience also? Kinda like an impromptu Daddy Date.
And she did, she got the full treatment. Even a professional lesson on washing and drying her hair
…as well as how not to dry your hair.
She’s getting older!
Anyway, every time I sit down to get my haircut I always jokingly tell my stylist I would like her to cut it in a way that makes me look younger…and maybe a bit more professional.
Well this girl is good but not that good!
So when she was done I turned to Dylan and asked her, “What do you think?”
You see every-time I come home from getting my haircut as soon as I walk in the door the first thing out of her mouth is, “Daddy, I like your haircut!“
So I asked her half-heartedly, “Do you think I look any younger?” expecting some sort of nice complimentary reply.
She shook her head no.
Disillusioned I said, “No? Why not? What more does she need to do to help me look younger?“
Dylan innocently looks up at me, “Your face!”
My stylist and I both looked at each other and burst out laughing.
“You don’t have a sander, do you?” I asked.
I think next time she can find her own stylist.
That’s all for now. Have the best summer weekend knuckleheads!
I’ll try to do better next time.
