I like to keep things simple these days.
Even when it comes to dressing up, and doing my make-up.
At my age, less is more.
Last week, for the wedding reception, my sister-in-law kindly offered to do my hair.
As you know, women like to wear black, wear more sparkle or bling in the evening. I was wearing my black cocktail dress but kept my hair down. Wasn't that enough?
I was content with the way I looked.
My parents thought it was a wonderful idea to get my hair done. My sister-in-law said it wouldn't take long to do.
Really? I agreed.
With a few bobby pins and hair spray, she put up my hair in pin curls.
And besides, we had an hour or so to kill before we headed downtown.
On our way to the reception, J.P blurted out, "Mommy, your hair looks weird."
"Oh, thanks, J.P"
Mr. O glanced at me, smiled and told me the boys are not used to me all dressed up.
So much for feeling glamorous. Sigh.
Even for a day.
