Lament for the Dead Hairdryer

March 29, 2017

         I’m sure most of you ladies know, and probably some of you guys, when your hair is soaking wet after your shower and the hairdryer quits, it’s like a betrayal to humankind.

         Not to mention to your pride.

         My hair looks like crap when it’s not blown out (not that it’s great anyway), but I take it as a personal affront when I can’t style it due to a technical demise.

 

         Here are some suggestions to alleviate this crisis when it happens to you, and it will:

         DON’T BE CHEAP: Keep a spare dryer on hand, especially if yours is older than dirt. Mine has been giving me the fidgets for over six months, but I’ve always been able to revive it, once I’ve given it a good shake and a choking. Tonight, though, it bit the dust. I may cremate it…

         KEEP A FLATIRON ON HAND: Flatirons are not kind to fine hair like mine, but is better than nothing, if you must go out in public.

         HAVE A DECENT HAT OR TWO ON HAND (OR HEAD), FOR EMERGENCIES:

Picture enclosed (enough said). You still may end up looking silly, and folks may point at you and giggle, but nobody will notice how much your hairdo sucks. Or, if you're sideways...

?

         CHOOSE A HUSBAND WHO’S A GOOD SPORT, OR A HAT PERSON: My husband is game enough to hit the store when I’m looking uglier than usual, and I’m too embarrassed to leave the house. The point is: Marry well.



         Thanks so much for hopping by, and visit your local store soon for your replacement. You’ll never know when you will need it.

         Better still, marry a guy who understands the foibles of a woman’s vanity and loves you for who your are.

Sometimes You Have to Take a Stand

March 22, 2016


 Just when I thought I’d met everyone who’s interesting, a charismatic persona took a stand for an issue that makes a difference that’s dear to our hearts. 
 He’s all over social media, poses for photo shoots, is musically inclined, and I'm willing to bet he’s a fine author, too.


Since I was already an avid fan of the Sesame Street Muppets, I easily became infatuated with my new, adorable furry friend, and HAD to know more about him!

It's Liebster Award Time...Or, Positivity is Everything

February 26, 2016
    I couldn’t think of anyone less likely to receive the Liebster Award, but my talented author friend Christy King has faith in me, thus my nomination.

Show & Tell Time OR How I Got a New Crockpot - Recipe for Disaster

February 2, 2016
     After eight months of renovating the fixer-upper Joe and I bought last May, we’ve nearly completed the mission of having “Our Dream Home.” 
     
    Too bad we almost blew up the new kitchen the other night, but I’ll be getting to that.
 
    The air conditioning quit our second day in the new place, and cost an unplanned $4800 to replace. Leave it to spring to herald in the hottest May on record, while we literally baked in the glory of renesting.
   
     Demolishing the dated kitc...

What a Wonderful Year This Has Been

December 7, 2015
This has been a year filled with many triumphs and changes. As I reflect on these memories, I’d love to share some with you.

First, we welcomed my youngest daughter’s baby son into the world on April 25. Although he was a month early, he suffered no ill effects, and he’s a healthy robust, almost-eight-month-old! His personality radiates the best of both families, and we all love him to pieces! 

Career wise, I’ve recently had the honor of participating in an author’s dream-come-true.

Kindness Matters!

June 30, 2015

Hey Everyone!!

As our month of positivity is coming to an end, it seems like a good time to reflect on the things we've learned and the goals we've created for ourselves.

As I, Barbara Chioffi, reflect on this month, sharing with my fellow bloggers has meant so much. We all need a support system that is uplifting and filled with positivity, and that is what has made this month so special. Each of us has our own methods to deal with those days when nothing seems to go right,...

Just Be A Little Kinder

June 26, 2015

“If you judge people you have no time to love them.” Mother Teresa

 

I saw this quote circulating twitter during the week and it really struck a chord with me. Then, having recently attended my Granddaughter’s 8th grade graduation, I was pleased to see the motivation of the graduating class was to be a little kinder – exactly what I’d like to bring into the fold today.

 

I’ve paid close attention to my fellow Positivity blog tour authors’...
