It's Just That Way

The thing about haircuts is that you just know there will be some awkward conversing going on. And you just know you will be pelted with inquiries that you just do not care to answer. But you just push through it because that is how life goes, sometimes.

And then you think that maybe instead of being asked all the questions, what if you asked the hairdresser all the questions?

But then you realize that's weird, and that it is the hairdresser's job to make the unnatural conversation.

That would be like asking your therapist the questions.

       'And... how does that make you feel? What can you change to make your situation better?'

You know, that just does not really work out for me.

So I am basically looking forward to tomorrow's unnatural conversing.

Gah!! I feel the same way!!! It's almost like the dentist talking to you when he's working on your teeth...just an unnatural conversation.

I feel the same way when I get my haircut! I love getting my haircut but I HATE trying to make conversation :)
