Life - Ron White

Friday, October 16, 2009 7:40 AM  |  by Babe with a Mane

Tonight's the night! I'm actually venturing out. Being cooped up since mid-June with my silly injury has finally made me stir crazy! That's it, I'm breaking out of this house!

We have tickets to see Ron White tonight! If you haven't heard him, take a listen:

I've heard him a few times and although sometimes he uses a lot of "colorful language", I find the routine pretty darn funny! One of his best jokes is that you should NEVER marry for looks. After all, eventually, all the body parts may need fixing - if your belly gets big, you can have a tummy tuck so you look like  a cheerleader, if your face starts drooping, you can have a face lift, but the bottom line is,

"You can't fix stupid. There's not a pill you can take or a class you can attend...Stupid is forever!"

So, tonight, I'm limping into a comedy show and I hope to laugh until my sides hurt. Tomorrow? I'll be back in confinement driving you all crazy with my posts!

Happy Friday everyone!

About Babe with a Mane

My natural hair has not been seen for over 20 years. It has hidden under wigs and weaves, under toppik, colored sprays, couvre and dermatch. My growing hair is a significant burden. It takes too much time to try to fix it up to be presentable, too much money to try to fix, too much energy to worry about and conceal. Every day, I used to wish for great hair. Every day I was ashamed of my thin hair. Every day, I woke up feeling confident, feminine and sexy inside. Then, I looked in the mirror at my natural hair and those positive thoughts were robbed from me. My natural hair forced me to feel unattractive, timid and insecure. I know who I am inside and I wanted to project that image to everyone else. To do that, my hair had to change. Women who are bald or have very thin hair, are not considered "socially acceptable" in the general public's eye. I wanted to be considered socially acceptable, my natural hair wouldn't let me. My dream hair allows me to lead a normal life. I wake up to my guy nuzzling my neck while my soft hair is brushed aside. I jump in the shower to wash my hair. I look in the mirror to see a confident and sexy woman, looking back at me. I don't waste hours trying to disguise myself to fit in. I blow dry and curl my hair and start my day with a spring in my step. I don't catch others staring at my thin hair while trying to have a conversation with me. The same confident, self assurance that I feel inside is now projected on the outside. There are no further internal battles between true persona and an incongruous outward appearance. I am finally, after a lifetime of dreaming, able to project an image that reflects the confident, sexy, intelligent, feminine woman I truly am.
