Thought for the day...

I bought some new hair bands at the Walmarts today (don't you love it when old people call it "the Walmarts?" Me too!)  It was a little revelation last Saturday while running the Ogden Marathon Relay that maybe I could maybe look decent at the end of a run if I wore a hair band (seriously, how do girls run a half or full marathon and still look like they've stepped out of a salon?  Curse my flyaway hair.)  My friend who ran with me on Saturday wore one, and I know my sis Amy wears one too, and they both look good at the end of a run. And, maybe with a hair band, I can look like those perky girls I saw at the finish line.  (Snort.)

So the head bands I bought weren't anything special but they were guaranteed to be no slip. However, I must have an abnormally large head because I fought the one I wore today all. day. long.  It flipped off, fell off, and eased itself off my head in excess of 156 times.  Or so it felt.

So, now you know. You are reading the blog of an abnormally large headed person.  I applaud your ability to look past other's deformities.

Maybe I should start introducing myself this way: "Hi, I'm Becky, and I have a giant head that cannot accomodate a one-size fits all hair band.  Pleased to make your acquaintance."

Dang the Walmarts.  Dang the one size fits all hair bands.  Dang my giant head.

I don't think you have a giant head. I think you have a SMALL head! At least...I do. I can only buy ONE brand of headbands, and they aren't the kind that are slide proof, because they don't stay on. My head is too small.

Maybe if we could average our head sizes we'd finally achieve the ellusive "normal"??? ;)

PS, oh yes. I always look so cute after a run. Me & my purple face.

I'm thinking your head isn't the problem. I'm not sure you can always trust the things you buy at "the Walmarts." Perhaps the one-size label isn't quite accurate. I've seen your head enough times to attest to its normal size. :)

If it makes you feel any better they don't stay on my head either! I hate it!
