Despite the timing, I'm not talking about the New Year's Resolutions I've broken, though I've already done that too.
No, I'm talking about the goal I mentioned a while back while trying to figure out what to do with my hair, or nonhair. How I just hoped to not scare young children. Seemed like I was setting my sights low enough.
Well, I answered the door the other day and discovered a little girl, about four, asking for her big brother, who was here playing with Brandon. And I could see it in her eyes. The 'That is one freaky lady and I wish I could run away but my feet seem to be glued to the ground' look. I reached up and realized that my around-the-house scarf was riding well above my ears.
So much for that goal. Maybe I ought to shoot for not scaring small animals.
