Last night, I had a date, and we were playing pool, and I was wearing a hoodie, and I have very long hair. At one point, I wanted to put my hair up — I do this by bending over at the waist, flipping all my hair over, and gathering it into a hair tie.
This time, when I did that, I accidentally hair-tied the strings of my hoodie, too, but the strings weren’t long enough to reach to the top of my head with my neck fully straightened, so when I stood up, I basically vertically clotheslined myself.
And it was a new, not-yet-stretched-out hair tie, so I couldn’t easily pull the hoodie strings out. They were really tightly bound in there. So I started just basically clawing my hair out into a giant bird’s nest with my neck craned awkwardly down toward my shoulders, and I also started laughing maniacally, because it was so ridiculous.
The guy just looked confused and embarrassed for me, so I don’t think that’s going to work out, because honestly, it gets so much worse than that on a regular basis.
