This is SO GREAT. Hooray!
Once again I, a white southerner, find myself at the intersection of "Not All White Southerners are Racists" and "Far Too Many White Southerners Need to Learn Some Actual Damn History."
Also, my sense of smell prevents me from going near cheese counters or into cheese shops. My life is tragic.
@whizz_dumb Hahahaha. Also, I died at "That stanks, no thanks!"
I would love for my sense of smell to dial it back about 35% or thereabouts, just so I can pass through life without dry-heaving at smells other people are able to ignore.
At the very least, I wish the nose bone wasn't connected to the gag reflex bone.
@Emmanuelle Cunt I do this with everyone I meet.
Sweet Tarts 4EVA!
Or at least until the bleeding ulcer kicks in!
I am officially on board with this.
Oh man this is all so great.
After decades of getting it consistently wrong to the point that I stopped using anything but shampoo and condition on my (long, thick, sort of wavy hair), I fell in love with the concept of the beach wave stuff but took a lot of trial and error out that Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (if only the name could be longer) stuff is perfect for my hair (plus a tiny amount of coconut oil to combat any lingering dryness). This includes using some super extra cheap product AND a super expensive one by Paul Mitchell that made my hair look and feel like I dipped my head in motor oil and then rolled around in gravel and a sandbox.
YMMV of course, but that stuff manages to give me the hair I want without making it feel gross.
And the thing for me is that I pretty much always look (or think I look) like I was just pulled backwards through a hedge, so sleek or geometric hair isn't anything I can pull off. I finally learned to just work with what my hair wants to do, which happens to be beach hair. I'm so glad to find out this is an actual style.
I'm going to follow that recipe and try to make my own though.
I totally love how O'Hare has handled this over the years. Responding any other way is to live your life on terms dictated by Penn, the media, anyone else who wants to insert themselves into this story.
