SoCS: Not So Hairy Times, Bald Armpits, and a Donation Rush



Today’s SoCS prompt is, “hairy.” I’m typing on my little phone since my laptop will only tell me it needs a new cooling fan. We ordered one and will take it to Staples for inserting when the fan gets here. So this post might be short,  and I’ll likely be slow in responding. Maybe this is God’s way of keeping me from spending so much time on the internet.

I just had to take a breath. It took a long time to type that first paragraph. My laptop will be appreciated when it comes out of hibernation.

But back to the prompt!

“Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair….” Can I post a link to the musical on my phone? I’ll come back to that.

This could be a hairy time, having to move “everything” out of my house for the re-wiring. Thank you to Joey at Joeyfully Stated for the encouragement to not think too hard about it and that thinking about it is usually more hairy than doing it. We were also discussing hair over there as in women having to shave legs. Sometimes I think that’s a conspiracy like high heels, but let’s not go there. One good thing about menopause is that I don’t have to shave under my arms (my armpits have gone bald) and I rarely care about shaving my legs. I do need to keep an eye on facial hair though which is weird. TMI? Too bad. It’s SoCS.

Something not obviously related but that makes the whole de-cluttering thing less hairy is that I’m really getting into donating stuff now that I’m DONE with estate sales. I got a big rush after taking a big load of stuff to the thrift store that benefits survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. It was a giggly, high-five to myself rush. I got a little rush donating a smaller load a couple days later. This could get addicting – the donating- not the typing on my little phone. My hand hurts and I need to take a break.

  1. Not TMI. I think we need to talk more about the menopause!

  2. Well done on the phone! I know how hard that is. Donating is truly addicting! Never have I felt such a rush.

  3. So glad you mentioned it, JoAnna. I had no idea that the loss of hair on my legs, arms, and armpits was a blessing of menopause. Never gave it a thought. One less female hairy obsession to worry about 🙂

  4. Nice job on the prompt. I’m gonna ignore some of it for commenting but I try and understand. 50 years on the musical – that seems impossible.

  5. I think my laptop have the same problem, still working but cannot be charged, has to be plugged in all the time.

  6. I love the music from the musical ‘Hair.’ I saw it in SF when it first came out on stage, very avant garde. It is really hairy to have to clear out stuff so you can get repairs or painting, floors, etc. done. It is good to get rid of stuff though.
