So I love that look on people’s face when I say something that just startles them or takes them back a little.
The other day when I got a haircut, the barber lady was talking to me (BTW, she’s a very nice person).
At one point, she says something about my hair being a little different on each side.
So I blurt out something like:
“Well, that’s because my brains are pushing it out!”
I got the funniest look from her…yes, it was priceless.
First, she’s like right, of course, your brains are pushing out your hair!
Then, she looks at me, and I start smirking, and she gives me the big eyes and raised eyebrows, like a combination of that’s funny and now don’t be such a wise guy.
Then, we both started laughing.
I love that.
I love doing that with people.
Getting a reaction.
Making them wonder for a second.
Getting them to smile and laugh.
Maybe my brains are pushing my hair out! 😉
