Last week while I was on vacation, somebody told me my bangs were too long.

“You need to sweep it back, get it off your face,” he said.

The thing is, he was eight years old. Eight years old!

So I knew it was true.

Therefore as soon as soon as I got home I went to Ronaldo.

“Cut my bangs WAY shorter,” I said.

And after protesting for a while, he did, with the result that where I formerly looked like an English sheep dog…

I now look like…..

Ramona of children’s-book fame.

Oh well. She is kind of cute, right? Like Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird, and she was cool as well as cute.

AND I can see really well.

  1. Ha! When Elliott was 8 he stopped me when I was looking at a pair of shoes in Talbots. “No, Grammy, those aren’t you. Look at these, and these.” Show us a pic of your new bangs?
