Pointing Out the Obvious

Today I’m guest blogging for Miss Well-Intentioned over at the Well-Intentioned Heartbreaker. She’s charming and adorable so it’s worth it to check her out. While you’re there you may as well read my post too.

First a little story:

One of my closest friends is a blonde (not surprising you say? Since I am a blonde and we tend to move together like a pack of lions stalking our prey? Well, you are correct). Anyhow, she is an intelligent girl with a degree in English and plenty of life experience.

She is actually a natural brunette, but the blonde definitely suits her better. There are times when Blondie says or does things that make everyone around her pause and think “yes, the blonde stereotype is still alive”.

Her and I went to get our passports one cold day in January. We both had our forms filled out, passport photos in hand, waiting in line to talk to the officer inside. I went in first and the woman checked over my forms twice before handing me a number and calling “next!”

Blondie walks in, lays her form on the desk and says: “Um, ok, so I’m not really sure what to put for hair color. Should I put my natural hair color or the color that my hair is now?”

The woman peered at her over her wire-rimmed glasses and with a slight frown said: “Just put blonde, honey”.

Now skip on over and visit Bee oh and read my post too: Deal Breakers
