So this happened at work today

Customer: Oh my gosh, you're so beautiful.

Me: Oh, thanks

Customer: But why aren't you wearing a wig?

Me: Umm what?

Customer: It's really deterring from your beauty. You could be truly beautiful if you wore a wig.

Me: I'm completely comfortable with who I am and don't feel the need to hide it by wearing a wig, thanks.

Customer: Oh you're just being stubborn.

Yesterday at work I had to stay late to help unpack some new mannequins that we had received. So, at the store I work at our mannequins wear wigs.. and I thought since the store was closed it was the perfect opportunity to try one on!

PS: My eyelashes are growing back!…

Grad cap

I forgot to mention this.. but at my high school graduation I didn't wear my grad cap. Everyone had to bobby-pin theirs to their hair and my principal told me to hold mine on my head. I laughed and walked across the stage without it on. I held it in my hand. First person in the history of Riverview High School to do it!
