Wild Woman

Ok, I've been told I'm not really a morning person. Hmmm, I'd have to disagree with that..

I love the mornings. It's my favorite time of day. So quiet, birds singin', watching the day unfold....yeah, I love the mornings.

Now, that being said, I do need to clarify something. I may be up and about in the morning, but that doesn't mean I'm coherent. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Oh, I'm not mean and nasty. Not at all. It's a new day, what is there to be shitty about? I just can't form comprehensive sentences well before, oh say, that 3rd cup of coffee. And I swear there is a law on the books in Indiana that I'm not allowed to operate a motor vehicle before the 6th cup. Really. There's some interesting stories there - trust me.

I like to take my mornings slow and easy. I slip around the internet while sippin' that first cup of coffee, seein' what happened in the world since I checked out. By the 3rd cup I've decided what I'm wearing and start the whole "time to make the donuts" routine.

It really throws my whole day off if I have to rush. I make mistakes, like unmatched shoes or I've even forgot a bra a time or two. Yeah, I need to take my damned time.

This morning is a perfect example. Last night, got home from work took a shower and washed my hair. Now, I abuse the hell outta these locks of mine, so I try to give them a break whenever possible. Last night I let them dry natural. Got up this morning to curly curly curly. And damn - I forget how thick my hair really is.

Anyway - I'm feelin' kinda lazy so I decide to just put 'em up in hot curlers to tame everything down. Easy Smeasy. Yeah. Should be. Mistake #1 - I did this on my first cup of coffee.

Folks - I just took my hair down. Half the curlers were put in one way, half were done the other. Now - I can twirl my hair around a pencil and it'll stay curled like that all day. I look like some kind of wild woman with curls goin' every which way right now.

Really - it's not a good look.

So you'd think I'd know better. I've been doin' this whole "Tammi in the morning" thing for a lot of years. I know my limitations.

This? Today? Yeah, my hair is now a conversation piece. And I don't mean that in a good way.

At least it's Friday. Well, that an I have a sense of humor........

I went to get my second cup of coffee this morning and then realized that I had grabbed a coffee filter was was cramming it in my coffee cup. Yeah, my brain doesn't function in the morning either.
