I haven’t had a haircut in several months. The thing is, I am growing my hair long again. So I should feel totally cool about not having it cut. But due to years of indoctrination it’s actually weirdly uncomfortable to go months without “even a trim” – won’t I get split ends?
Well it turns out that hair does not spontaneously decay after a few months of not being cut. Another unwritten rule of life I can consign to the compost heap.
Karen’s Top 3 Unwritten Rules that are Bullshit
- When you have a child, you must purchase a four-wheel drive vehicle. This is bullshit. Children do not need a big car. They are very small! They have very small legs! I have fit two children, two adults, two strollers and a scooter in my Astra hatchback. The seat also does not need to be higher, unless you have some kind of injury. If you get a dog, you can buy a station wagon.
- You must recline your chair on an aeroplane. I was recently on a plane where the passenger in front reclined their seat as soon as they boarded. At 5pm. The stewardess told them to put it upright for takeoff, which they did, and then RECLINED IT AGAIN after she’d walked away. Then the stewardess told them again to put it upright. After that she RECLINED IT AGAIN, JUST SLIGHTLY after the hostess walked away. This is not necessary! It is actually possible to leave your seat in the upright position throughout an entire flight! In fact, if it is day time, it is not actually necessary to go to sleep – EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE ON A PLANE.
practisingdoing yoga, you must wear pants of exactly three-quarter length. I have tested this theory, and you will be astonished to find that it is actually possible to do yoga in long pants, capris, bermudas and short shorts. Mindblowing!
