Hilarious!

Friday, I've found, is a particularly slow day for my blog. So today I'm taking it easy--one quick, funny story to start the weekend, and then I've got to get to work on my WIP.

So yesterday I went to get my haircut. Turns out I haven't been since April, and my hair is longer than it's been, probably since I was five years old. I carried in a picture of Veronica Mars, Season 1 with me, and I came out looking more like a flapper-girl. Oh well.

But while I'm sitting in the chair, my hairstylist, whom I've been going to for quite a while now, was telling me how her high-school senior daughter has started taking art classes at the local university. She recently brought home a consent form (seeing as she's not yet eighteen) because they were going to start drawing nudes.

Well, the first one--a woman--came and went without incident. The second one was a 65-year-old man, who according to the daughter was quite 'buff'. He posed DOING A HEADSTAND--NAKED! And he could only hold the position for ten minutes at a time, so then there was a break and it all started over again. A NAKED HEADSTAND DONE BY A 65-YEAR-OLD MAN??? I couldn't stop laughing. Who on earth asks someone--anyone--to pose like this naked??? For this reason alone, I will never even consider taking art lessons. I'd be the goof ball in the back who couldn't stop giggling.

Whew--gotta get that image out of my head and focus...

Have a great weekend!
