Ahhh...there's nothing better than having your hair freshly done...by the professionals. While my highlights were processing my phone rang...twice. Bruce, BYU's Landscape Architect, really wanted to talk to me.
When he called the third time I answered.
"Where are you? Why are you so hard to find?"
"If you really want to know Bruce, I'm getting my hair done."
"Oh...hey, I haven't asked you in a while. How are things with that guy you were dating?"
'Really Bruce, you called me three times to talk about my love life?' That's what I was thinking.
"Things ended a while ago Bruce."
"You're better off single." Bruce just went through an ugly divorce.
"Well, I'm glad you're still getting your hair done Noelle. That's a positive sign."
"I'm glad I have your support Bruce. Now, what can I do for you?"
"When you say you're getting your hair done what does that mean exactly? Cut and wash or what?"
"Trimmed, highlighted, and styled," is what I told him.
"You highlight your hair? Noelle! Oh no...please tell me it doesn't look awful!"
"Actually Bruce, I try to keep things pretty natural. Unless someone is really observant, it's not too obvious that I have highlights. Don't worry, I think you would approve."
"Oh good...well then I'm glad you get highlights...I'm sure it looks great."
"Did you need something Bruce?" I asked.
"Oh...yes...I need some plants."
And then it was back to business as usual.
It's always nice to know my customers are looking out for me.
***It's 5 hours later and Bruce just called again...for the 6th time today. The first thing he asked, "How's the hair holding up?" I just laugh...
