**UPDATED**:  I read a devotional every once in a while online called Internet Cafe.  I like them because they are short little ditties, and they are written by every day ladies like you and me.  I could NOT believe my eyes when I read today's post.  God never ceases to amaze me in the ways he delivers messages to all of us!  Go check it out after you read this post to see what I'm talking about.

Have you ever done something and before you did it you told yourself you shouldn't.  And even as you are starting to do it, you knew you shouldn't be, but it's like your body just takes over and you have no idea you're even doing said deed until it's done; it's too late.  

If you said no, you're lying.

It's kind of like driving on a long trip and you've gone 100 miles and don't even know how you got there; you have no memory of the scenery or the music on the radio.

One of these instances was painfully real for me Saturday evening.  And afterwards, my face looked like the guy's at the top.

I won't go into details for fear of total humiliation.  Only two people know exactly what I did and have seen the evidence, and they are my hubby, and my SIL, Dawn, and THEIR LIPS ARE SEALED (do you hear me, McH and D?)!

To satisfy your curiosity, I have decided to sum up the event in HAIKU.  Oh, don't pretend you don't know what it is.  Remember, 5-7-5?  K, here goes.

With scissors in hand
bangs look like I'm five years old
Can you make them grow?

Nuff said.

  1. Ok I so almost peed my pants reading your post! LOL I am sure you look gorg with your new bangs! Although I do have a bunch of really cute hair pins until they grow out if you would like to borrow some :)

  2. THAT is just CRAZY! I just laughed when I read this! I KNEW I wasn't the only one who had a scissor affliction!

    how rude of me...I should have first said, "It's NICE to meetcha!!" :)

    Listen...hide those scissors, that's what I did...ONLY I know where I've hidden!;)

    oh and that devo was written a month ago...for editing purposes...mine are growing back nicely:)! How COOL is God????

    I'm just laughing over here! Your pic was WAAAY better than mine!

    Have a great scissor free afternoon!


  3. HILARIOUS!! But, I must say, I saw you this afternoon at aerobics and I don't recall thinking, "O, heck, what did Charla do to her bangs?" So,it must not be too bad! :) OR, maybe it had something to do with the fact that Amber was ripping the muscles out of my legs and abs and I wasn't focused on your bangs! :)

    Had fun at the gym! SO missed you Friday night!

    And I DID see a buck. I DID.:)

  4. Oh my gosh! You make me laugh!!! Love the post!
