My Journey Home episode, a welcome, and an impassioned defense of blow-outs
A big thank you to everyone who has contacted me after seeing my appearance on The Journey Home last night! If you’re a new reader, you can get a feel for the kind of writing I do by checking out the “Most Popular Posts” on the left sidebar. To catch you up to speed, here’s what we’ve been talking about lately:
- What happens when you try to take a bunch of rowdy young children to Whole Foods
- A recent conversation with my gay friend
- How to develop an appreciation for the Psalms (don’t miss the great comments!)
- A post about grief and neighbors
If you missed the episode, here it is:
We talked about why I was an atheist, what it was like to be an atheist as a mother, the first big moment that made me question that belief system, my husband’s conversion, and a bunch of other stuff!
I actually missed it too. I had my weekly raging sinus infection and wasn’t up for doing anything but lying in bed and thinking of analogies for what this pain was like (I settled on “a small bomb went off within my right cheek and someone stuck an ice pick in it”). Anyway, wild and unfounded speculation about what could be going on here is welcome. In general I’m in great health, I even got the random debilitating intestinal pain thing figured out, but my right sinus cavity just goes crazy on me with alarming frequency. I think there may be some connection to food, since I noticed that my sinuses would always be inflamed if I had a margarita with fresh-squeezed lime juice or white wine the night before. I’ve tried everything else, so it’s time for Diagnosis By Combox.
Okay, enough about trivial subjects like my health. Let’s talk about hair instead!
For the last few TV appearances I’ve done I decided to get a professional blow-out. I had heard that it could make a huge difference in how your hair looks, but I was skeptical. Why would someone else blow-drying my hair be any different than doing it myself? Behold the following pictures, with captions articulating what I seem to be saying for your amusement:

I think you are now convinced, as I am, that blow-outs are an essential item in every woman’s life. I cannot currently afford to make this any kind of regular part of my routine, but am talking to my husband about possibly selling the TV or the car so that I can walk around with professionally blown out hair all the time.
Have a great rest of the week, everyone! See you Friday!New here? Take a moment to introduce yourself, or say hi on Twitter at @conversiondiary.
