Compliment

As you well know from following this blog, I’m trying to grow out my hair.  It’s been a long and difficult process and will continue to be so for quite some time.  Today, however, something happened that might make the whole situation bearable.  I actually received a compliment.

I took Daisy in for a nail trim (something we do every 6 weeks) and the receptionist at the vet asked if I was growing out my hair.  I said (somewhat regretfully) that I was and that it was driving me crazy and she said… she really liked it.  I was a bit shocked.  No one (who didn’t know I was growing it out) has complimented my hair since I started this process.  A lot of my friends say kind things, but this was a completely unsolicited compliment.
