You all know I'm weird. No mystery there. But I'm going to offer you further evidence of this. Why? I don't know. Probably because I'm weird.
I get hair splinters in my feet. That's right -- strands of hair on the floor go into my feet just like splinters. I'll feel a sharp stab and then lots of pain when I step, and upon investigation, discover a piece of hair in my foot. So I get the tweezers, grab the end of the hair, and pull it out.
This is made worse by three things:
1. I like to run around the house barefoot. I have no idea why -- you'd think that with this strange sensitivity, I'd wear socks or shoes. Nope -- I'm a barefoot girl.
2. My hair is really thick and I shed a lot. Every time I wash my hair, I have to clean out the drain, and I go in to the salon three times a year specifically to have them go at me with thinning shears. This means there is a lot of hair on the floor for me to step on.
3. My 8-year-old son's hair is really stiff. And I cut it myself. So every time I cut it, I have to carefully sweep up, lest I get tons of hairs in my feet. However, it is impossible to get every single bit of hair up off the floor.
And why have I chosen today to write about this? You see, I cut my son's hair the other night. And I'm running around barefoot. Yep, you got it -- I pulled a hair out of my foot about ten minutes ago.
