If you know me all, you know I embrace my blondeness. Some examples from this week:

Blonde moment #1 involved orange barrels (think construction nightmares). I will say no more about that.

Blonde moment #2 involved the washing machine. Apparently this random light switch outside the closet that the machine is in is directly connected to the outlet in the closet and if you turn it off, the washer won’t work. The maintenance people at our complex LOVE us. I’m sure we were a source of amusement for them.

Blonde moment #3 involved meeting the new pastor’s wife at the church where I work. She isn’t very tall and when she reached across the desk to shake my hand. I conked her elbow on the shelf. Brilliant.

Blonde moment #4 involved the speaker system in the office suite I work in. I used the remote at the desk I was using to turn up the stereo. I kept turning it up and up but there was no sound. So, I thought I had turned it down sufficiently. I went to the closet where the main console was and noticed the speaker buttons were off. I pushed the speaker button and NO I had not turned it down at all! It was at FULL volume!! You’ve heard the noise… the loudest sound burst imaginable without making you pass out. Imagine someone taking the heart paddles and shouting, “CLEAR!” and shocking you while you were still alert. That’s how the ladies felt out there. I think I nearly gave one a heart attack. Brilliant.

Friday, however, I was blonde moment free. I was grateful to take a blonde day off.

One other note… Memorial Day will be my first paid day off in almost 5 years! I will truly be able to relax and enjoy myself.

Good night and may the blonde not be near you when her blonde control gauge explodes.


I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!
