Too Stupid Not To Be True


This morning, while curling my hair, a bee (fly?) flew into the bathroom and landed on my arm... the very arm which happened to be attatched to the hand which was holding the curling iron.

I panicked and jerked said arm to dislodge bee (fly?), but, as my hair was all twirled up and right next to my scalp, all I managed to do was release my hold on the curling iron... smacking myself on the head with its VERY EFFING HOT barrel and giving myself both a bruise and a burn... of course, as soon as the heat of the iron made official contact with my head I instinctively jerked away which cause the stupid thing to now slide down my hair and land on my shoulder thus giving me YET ANOTHER BURN.

Seriously.  I may need supervision.

And now I need to sort out some sort of concealer hairdo... you know, to hide the burned parts.

Man, I hate bees (flies?).

I hate to laugh at your pain, but, well... I did. Or, you know what? Let's say I was laughing WITH you because that sounds like something I would do if I could use a curling iron with any skill. Which I can't. Which is evident in pictures of me from high school.

As for a concealer hairdo, I'm afraid I'm no help. I rock a short do and have never been able to unlock the mystery of long hair styling.

Jill - I think today will be all about the w-i-d-e headband.

I did that once in college (minus the bee, add klutziness). I lied and told everyone this convoluted story that did NOT involve a curling iron. Everyone got really quiet... then someone said, "so how hot WAS that curling iron?" Sigh.

I'm laughing only because I have sooooo been there.

Give it a few days and a few shots of vodka, you'll hardly remember that it happened.

Mel said...

I'd have paid good cash money to see that. ;)

Kristin said...

Let me just say that my head doesn't hurt as much as my shoulder... the whole bra/shirt thing is the stuff of nightmares.

I am such a dumbass.

Tori said...

This is so you...and me for that matter. So many people will walk through life and things like this will never happen...

For us....all the bloody time.

Remember my knife cut and you falling over the sidewalk - to name but a few!!!!

At least you weren't sitting in water. What a shock that would have been. Ha...shock...I crack myself up. How about a hat and shoulder pads-Red Hat Society type lady? Be better soon. Carol

P.S. I almost feel graceful. This coming from someone who frequently notices the crotch of her panties is on her hip!

Wow, that was an impressive string of events. Do you have an aloe vera plant for the burns?

Kristin said...

Yes, the aloe vera and my personal favorite for all things skin related - kukui nut oil... and wine. I think it's about time for a glass of wine.

Chuckle...

Sorry. I shouldn't laugh at your pain and quasi-humiliation.

Be careful, okay?

Shelley said...

Hah! Oh Kristin, so sorry you got hurt, but this is good material.

Am I a bad friend because I got a belly laugh at your expense? :)

Gen said...

I haven't done that since high school!

Go grab a glass of something stronger than wine and watch the Zoe show.

As for hairstyles, you might want to try the Brett Michael's bandana do? *hah*

Los said...

Well, at least I'll never have to worry about doing something like that ... although I do stupid things to numerous to mention.

Glad your okay, despite the burn. Those are very painful. Yet what we do for beauty and to get away from insects.

Grandma J said...

after many burns from a curling iron, all caused by something other than user error, I decided to junk it.
My scars are fading and my hair is straight.
sorry about the bee and burns.

Joe said...

Sorry to laugh, but that's really funny.

Erm...if you're on this side of the whole burning thing, that is.

We women do suffer for our beauty.

On a related note, just last week I was blow drying my hair, got distracted by the dog, held the dryer too close and BURNED OFF a good chunk of hair. Brilliant.

Hope you're OK!
