Yesterday was our last day of classes for this trimester. Instead of staying in class during conversation class our teacher took us to her hair stylist, viagra Mario. (We had worked very hard and completed our book a week early, so this was a bit of a reward.) Mario is apparently a famous stylist. He does a lot of work at the National Theater for the ballet company and other productions. What our teacher failed to tell us was that she was going to drop us off and go get her nails done somewhere else. That was fine, though, we all speak well enough to get through a styling appointment. So I wanted to get my hair cut. I explained to Mario that I wanted layers and to keep my hair long. That’s basically what I had already, so I told him just to trim it up and clean it up a little bit. My visit was very enjoyable and we chatted while he started snipping away at the bottom of my hair. Then he had me lean over and he put all of my hair in a ponytail on the very top of my head. It looked real cool… :-). I thought, “Well, this is different,” but I expected he would start pulling small chunks out and start trimming. That’s when he asked me “Do you have a good heart?” “What?” I asked. And he repeated, “Do you have a good heart?” We had been talking about church and things, so I figured he was going on with the conversation. “I believe so,” I said. “Good,” he said and then he held up the ponytail, took the scissors and cut the entire ponytail about two inches away from my head. I could not breathe! He laughed and said, “You’re probably wondering what I’m doing. Don’t worry. It will still be long.” At this point I just sat waiting to see what was going to come of it. In fact, the back of my hair still is pretty long, but the top is much, much shorter than I anticipated and I am not thrilled with my new hairstyle. Fortunately my hair grows out quickly, though, and soon it will be a little bit longer on top and I’m sure I’ll love it then. But I have learned… if someone asks you if you have a good heart it is probably because they’re about to do something to test how good your heart is. From now on I’ll say no!! 🙂

This picture actually makes it look a little better than it is in real life, but here you go…
