I can’t bear looking in the mirror-I guess that’s why my hair looks like this. ~ Lance Bass
I’m not certain what psychologists would say about one who starts nearly every day by approaching the wall mirror, peering at his reflection; just to get a laugh at the bed induced hair design. Actually, I would be more correct in stating I’m better off not knowing.
Haven’t most of you done the same thing? Now I can certainly understand a puzzling look on the faces of those sleepers of stone; the ones waking exactly in the same position they fell asleep. They must be the rarities of the sleeping world. For the rest of us, if there is still hair crowning our conk, after a sleeping session of pillow plowing, we’ve created a masterpiece to be proud of.
As a three-pillow sleeper, I can achieve hair shooting off in just about every direction. At times, I may have wondered if Dennis the Menace a/k/a Dennis Mitchell and I are related. He certainly carried that stampeding cowlick in every moment of being filmed. Some may wonder why I wouldn’t have thought of Our Gang Alfalfa. Though he undoubtedly had the most prominent cowlick ever to grace the movie screen, I ruled that possibility out. I can at least carry a tune, and Carl Switzer was lucky if he could carry one in a bucket.
I realize that unless you have a cowlick or two, these early morning events may not mean much, since the morning hair probably just looks a bit poofy. Having at least a quad of cowlicks on the ole noodle, I can get some real dramatic styles going on.
One may think after over fifty years, I would get used to having these bedhead looks, yet my early years were spent with the good ole butch haircut. With those, the look is the same waking as when you turned in. Therefore, to me these are relatively new experiences.
Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression these hair raising creations would be enough to scare anyone, or at least I would hope not. For me they are a great way to start my morning…I love to laugh, and I’d rather laugh at myself than someone else.
If you want to start your day on a positive note, glance at yourself in the mirror and see what the sleep session’s handiwork has provided for you. In addition, if you really want to continue laughing for awhile, don’t touch it, drive to the nearest convenience store for a gallon of milk or something. Smile at everyone you meet, and pay attention to how many glance up at your hairstyle…just don’t laugh aloud when you catch him or her.
