it changes every day.

Standard

(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,

showing my expression and hair at sign-in)

while signing-in at the salon

i asked the receptionist

what the date was

to which she replied, 

“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”

(not ironically)

i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.

the works.

Standard

before i left the salon

i booked my next appointment

after discussing what services

i’d be interested in

 as i walked back to my car

i read the receptionist’s summary

of what i’d requested

stated in two words:

“the works”

 i had better plan to be there for a while.

 

“great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.”

went to the nail salon

to relax

be pampered

have a pedicure

into

a hello kitty chair

with the

 massage option

given water

listened

to my nail tech

who was

a

very

very

very

quiet talker

tried to answer

what she asked

that didn’t

make me seem

insane

off subject

lotion

warm water

scrub

wrap

paint

sleepy

relaxed

drifting

watched

a

bad

made for tv movie

on the screen

with

subtitles

and lots

of hilarious

translation snafus

and ponies

and angst

and there was

candy

all around

and i

read

a trashy magazine

took the quiz

found 

i am 

most

‘like goldie hawn’

of all

the 

celeb possibilities

kept trying

to answer questions

though i had no idea

what she was asking

in her whisper voice

tried to lip read

i probably said that 

i like ponies

and

cotton candy

and

my name

is goldie hawn

as i slipped into 

a dreamy state

of 

hello kitty consciouness
