Our Post-It Pre-Nup
So, D and I made a pre-nup, of sorts, after we got engaged. And I felt the need to tell you guys about this for the following reason:
You see, it’s about my hair.
Guys… it’s getting long. And boring. And the length that it always gets to when I want to hack it off (not all the way off, just maybe a sassy chin length bob).
But, I’m kinda torn about that because of our post-it pre-nup. Because on that post-it, I agreed that I would never cut all my hair off. Now, before you start thinking that I have entered into some sort of sister-wives-pentecostal-man-controlling binding agreement, it’s not like that.
You see, when we first started dating, I was in the early stages of growing out a very unfortunate (VERY UNFORTUNATE), very short, hair cut from high school (that I maintained for a VERY long time because growing it out was so bad.) It was not a good look for me. And I hated it. And D apparently hated it too, and lives in terror that I will one day decide to chop it all off again. (If I had pictures in electronic form, I would gladly post them so you could see the abomination that was my hair, but I do not. People who knew me in High School would totally back me up, I am sure.)
So, D really likes my hair long. But, I am getting bored with it and want to hack it off. And that got me pondering our post-it (and yes, I realize it’s a Grey’s Anatomy thing now– but whatever):
The Kelly and D Post-it Pre-Nup
1) Kelly will not cut her hair shorter than chin length
1a) The Hair Salon Addendum– D must make allowances for hair salon costs in budget and time for hair appointments once we have kids so that I can maintain my hair if I can’t cut it off
2) D must never wear jean shorts (shudder)
2a) amended to add leather old man sandals and Hawaiian shirts (outside of luau settings)
3) We mutually agree not to “let ourselves go”. I have a mortal fear of becoming frumpy, so no mom jeans and scrunchies (Have you SEEN they are apparently making a comeback?! The HORROR), eating healthier, working out, etc.
With the possible exception of the last item, they are obviously silly, trivial things– but I have quite an affection for our post-it pre-nup. I feel bad skirting the lines of my no hair cutting off agreement so early in our marriage. Plus, it’s been a long time since I ever had the patience to grow my hair out this long– should I keep it this way?
But it’s so long, guys! What should I do? Suggestions for new hair cuts and colors are welcome!
