"This girl is on fire…"
Sometimes, I get really great ideas. And sometimes, a number of those ideas that I think are great, turn into big fat fails.
On Friday, I watched the last three episodes of season 5 of Mad Men so I could remember exactly how the season ended. Every time I watch that show, I get the “I want red hair” bug. Of course, I guess part of me was also hoping that if I dyed my hair red, I would somehow magically turn into Joan Holloway.
All of you that read my blog know I only have about, at most, a half inch of hair on my head from hair loss from lupus. I figured, if I dyed it and looked like ass, I’d just buzz it off.
It’s only hair.
So I printed out some coupons, headed to Target, and picked out a really pretty red color.
I picked that one cause the girl had brown eyes and a pink-y skin tone like mine. Plus, I figured it would fade really quickly, as red dye always does.
I put on the hair dye, and it itched, but I figured it was because I haven’t dyed my hair in over a year. I wait the 25 minutes, wash it out…
Hubby and I go to bed that night, and my scalp is getting more and more itchy. I’m eventually clawing at my head, and I’m starting to get little hives on my scalp.
I run into the bathroom, and grab the box of dye from the wastebasket. On the bottom right corner is picture of a ripe avocado. Scroll back up and look for yourself.
I’m allergic to avocados.
2 Benedryl and 2 Tylenol later, I finally pass out.
