They were then asked to share any changes in appearance they had made during those two years.
So, one day, as I was sitting in traffic on my way to my hair appointment, I decided I was officially going to make the big chop.
I had gone back and forth on the idea for weeks because, regardless of my self-assurance, it still felt so drastic to cut off something that felt so integrally me. Once at the salon, I hastily looked up inspirational pictures on my phone in the waiting area to show the hairdresser what I wanted. In the end, I told her to cut my hair just above my shoulders with long layers mixed in. I swear I stopped breathing when I heard the scissors chop off the first section of hair. But I knew at this point there was no turning back.
After what felt like an eternity, it was over. I hesitantly looked up at myself, draped in a black plastic cape that was covered in my locks. It was then that I saw the person I felt inside.
Instead, I felt empowered and excited and — honestly — hot! Excuse me while I get crazy symbolic, but I genuinely felt like the weight of my past had been removed, even if just for that moment. But I also no longer worry about falling into the same patterns of the person I was. Instead, I embrace discovering the person I have become. Knowing that I ran headfirst — literally — into it makes me feel empowered to take on any other changes life throws at me.
The shift is slightly jarring, I'll admit, and perhaps even unsettling. Nevertheless, let me assure you that this is as he intended.
One comment on “Excuse Me??”
By consuming nearly half my contents, he elected to have me act as his proxy in all manner of interpersonal communications. You'll be getting to know me quite well over the next three hours, or at least until I take over his body in toto and pass out in the nearest chair, whichever comes first. If you care to listen, I believe you'll find many of my anecdotes and opinions fascinating.
For example, were you aware that it took him nearly half an hour to drive himself here because the Chinaman in front of him never learned to read a damned speedometer? Now, now, please—calm yourself.

Before you jump to conclusions, know that I am not being deliberately racist. No, that's just the sort of unfiltered "from the hip"—if I can use the vernacular—statements you can expect for the rest of the night. I'll be unearthing many facets of his personality of which he himself was previously unaware, as represented by the aforementioned racially charged remark, a few half-baked political notions, and a long, rambling explanation of why his former romantic partner was so wrong to abandon him despite the fact that he dedicated nearly three years of his life to her and who in the hell was she to imply that he was incapable of loving anyone but himself?
This reminds me, I have also been tasked with undertaking all possible romantic endeavors tonight. Most likely this will occur in the form of an awkward pass; perhaps I'll lean in to brush your hair out of your face but inadvertently poke you in the eye, because I will have control of his motor functions as well.
My apologies, that was merely an observation intended as a compliment.
