What In The Hell Was I Thinking?

Week Day 1 of the Experiment

Day 1

8:30 AM Realize that I haven't had a haircut. Ask keeper of the rules Dylan if haircut is an allowable expense. He says, For me, yes. For you, no.

Try to figure out how to get a free haircut. Which should be fairly difficult as I don't personally know any hairstylists. Tigger offers her services. I respond "Well, great. I'll just have some really lopsided hair all through Lent."

Did I mention that I'm fasting?

10:30 AM Tigger says "I have 10 zloty. Can I buy a Coke?"

Check with Dylan. He says, "You can do whatever you want with your money. But because your primary source of income is babysitting for your parents, and your parents won't be going out during this time, perhaps you should rethink your budget."

Tigger goes to the store and buys a Coke.

5:30 PM Dylan says, "I'm thinking of this being like when we were broke. You remember, when we had to bounce checks for rent? We've done that. We can do it again."

Yeah...I remember those days. I DID live them. I never really thought I would have to RElive them. By choice.

7:00 PM Dylan asks "How much did you spend today?" I turn to my personal shopper, "Tigger, how much did I spend today?"

Dylan says, "WHY DID YOU SPEND MONEY TODAY? IT'S ONLY THE FIRST DAY?"

I say, "YOU DON'T WANT US TO EAT?"

Realize this experiment will destroy my marriage. If it means that I can get a haircut, I'm okay with that.

  1. Looking hot is my first priority. Keeping the spouse happen way way second. Probably why we're no longer together.

  2. So this is going to work well, isn't it...

    Take Bern's advice: just look hot. Screw everything else. I mean really, Kylie...you need to be told this stuff?

  3. I just need to clarify that I was only fasting on day 1. I am not fasting every day during Lent. I'm not quite that crazy...I mean dedicated.

  4. Hey, I could have sorted you out a free haircut. Sure it may not have been the best haircut ever but hey, it would have been free...

  5. I hear that hairstyling schools offer free or cheap haircuts to people who are willing to serve as test subjects for the trainees :-)

    I like Braja's advice (above). Remember, it's not WHAT you do, it's how GOOD you look doing it! *grin* TGIF!

  6. So why is a haircut a necessity for him and not you? I get medusa hair after about four weeks and no one can tell me that a trim is not absolutely necessary.

    Just sayin...

  9. You gotta love kids and their financial reasoning. I almost lost it when your Hubby explained things to Tigger very clearly
    and
    *Tigger goes to the store and buys a Coke.*
    anyway.
    I'm still laughing...am I strange?!?

  10. This hurts me just to read. And I would totally give you a free haircut, and it would only be slightly lopsided, like a 14 year old might give.

    Maybe you could do "cutting back" and not "cutting off" of funds?
