So, I'm growing my hair out, but if there is one thing I hate, it's spending hours in the bathroom getting ready - hence the short hair for the last several years. My hair has some natural wave to it, not enough to be curly - just enough to look frizzed out and ridiculous - so I usually end up straightening it before I go out in public. Well, one day I decided to just blow it dry and leave it "wavy" - I put some "Conditioning Glaze" on it which was supposed to make it shiny and not-so-frizzy. I went to my friend's house and asked if it looked like I tried to do my hair or if it just looked like I jumped out of the shower and let nature take its course. She said that it looked cute, but perhaps a little bit frizzy. (I love that I have friends who will be honest with me and help me find a solution for my bad hair days...) She asked if I had a diffuser. I promptly replied that no, I do not. I didn't even know what a diffuser was, to be perfectly honest. So she showed me her diffuser and I thought, hmm...maybe I do have one of those...I think it came with my hair dryer.
So fast forward a few days, I start going through my cabinets to see if I can find the diffuser that came with my hair dryer. I found it, but it didn't quite look like the one my friend showed me. So I did what anybody would do - I took a picture of it and e-mailed it to my knowledgeable friend. She wrote back and said that she was not sure - because it did look quite different than hers - but said it would probably suffice.
So I left the "diffuser" out on the bathroom counter. Keep in mind that I have not talked to Eric about any of this. He came home from work and saw it on the counter and says, "Oh, did you use your diffuser today?" WHAT? I promptly started in with 20 questions: "How did YOU know that was a diffuser? Who told you that's what it's called? How in the world to YOU know what a diffuser is when I had no idea??" He just looked at me like I was nuts. But seriously, Eric is a very intelligent man, but I wouldn't exactly call him an expert when it comes to women's beauty products. Am I seriously the only one who did not know what this was??
