Hair and There!

Peaceful Sanctuary doesn’t quite describe our home. It’s more like House of Hairball.

Both IT Guy and I tend to leave little presents for each other on our pillows − and it ain’t chocolate mints! In fact, at the speed we’re making hair art in our bed, we’ll both be completely bald by summer’s end!

With two dogs added to the hairy mix, I haven’t seen the bedroom carpet in over a year. Be assured if either of us winds up missing, the forensic lab won’t need our toothbrushes or hair brushes for cell comparison. They’ll just cut out a square of bedroom carpet and get all the DNA they’ll need to establish identity.

…which reminds me of a Crossing Jordan rerun I was watching the other day. An airplane crashed and the medical examiner asked relatives to bring in the toothbrushes and hairbrushes of the dead.

My question is this: If these people were on an airplane, wouldn’t that mean they were going on trips? And if they going on trips, wouldn’t they have taken their toothbrushes and hairbrushes with them?

P.S. I only watch Crossing Jordan to catch a glimpse of hunky Jerry O'Connell. He could leave his hair on my pillow any time!

P.S.S. Be sure to leave a comment on yesterday's blog for a chance to win Jo Barrett's just released book Don't Let It Be True. Contest deadline is April 1 at midnight!


  1. I lose a lot of hair too. I had to buy this little drain plunger because I keep clogging everything up. I still have too much hair! Thankfully FringePup doesn't seem to shed quite as much as I do.

    You're right about the toothbrush thing. They would have gone down with the plane.

  2. I keep a duplicate of essentials in my shaving kit including: hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, electric razor, deodorant, ibuprofin and decongestant just to name a few. I like to be able to throw that kit into my bag and go, knowing that I have everything I need.

  3. Hmmm... good thinking about the brushes. Of course I've probably had to buy a new toothbrush about a dozen times when traveling. That and tweezers...???

    My "IT guy" thinks I should be bald by the looks of the bathroom floor. I lose a ton of sister tells me it is normal. Laughing - consider the source I suppose!

    Have a good one!

  4. Yep.. duplicates. Hub travels for his job and keeps his "personals stuff bag" stocked up so all he has to do is throw it in his suitcase.
    QTips for cheek swabs... ziplock freezer bags, label them, and stash them in the freezer. 'Cause ya never know....


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
