Shower Cap

This is my 100th Post.  That’s kind of a big deal, right?

Anytime something is a big deal, or I tell myself, “This is a big deal!”  the same thing happens.  Nothing.  Especially when it comes to writing.

Whether I’m writing a chapter for a book or a blog post.  If it’s a big deal, I draw a blank.  I think about it too much.  For the last few years this blog has been my random thoughts, ramblings.  It’s been effortless and fun.  So, why would I jinx myself now and make this 100th post anything different.  I didn’t.

This last week I took a shower for the first time with a shower cap.  I’m almost 40 and this was my first shower cap experience.  So cool.

I have long hair that needs to be straightened and sometimes, most of the time, it is a royal pain.  The woman that does my hair told me that I should go at least 3 days in between washing and straightening my hair.  Like a dummy I replied that even when I pull my hair up in the shower it gets wet and I might as well just…”Well, use a shower cap,” she says.

I’d never used one.  Sure I’d seen them in hotels and I think there’s something kind of like a cap they put on your hair when you get it colored.  My grandmother used a shower cap, but I’d never experienced a shower cap actually in the shower.

It’s been kind of a crazy month and I found myself excited to get and use a shower cap.  I stumbled upon something I’d never tried before, that was simple.  I didn’t need to buy airline tickets or start planning.  I stopped at Walgreens and bought a very cute shower cap that comes in it’s own little bag.  I think there’s beauty products on it.  I didn’t really look.

I tucked my hair into the cute little cap and although I looked pretty silly it kept my hair dry.  Simple, new and really cool.  I dried it off and put it back in the little bag.  I’m now the owner of a shower cap.

Simple is good, uncomplicated and often times produces some pretty great surprises.  I wanted to blog about my shower cap, but something told me I needed a profound topic for my 100th blog, something that would stand out.  What the hell was I thinking?  The shower cap idea was way better.

That’s all from the laundry room.  100 Winks!
