Your hair is so shiny, she said. Straight hair shines, but curly hair doesn't because light only reflects off of flat surfaces. I wish my hair shined.
Well, Miss Britt, who gives a rat's ass if your hair shines? Because you, you shine plenty. Curly hair or straight. No matter our skin, smiles, hearts, laughs through happiness and pain, our way with words, the never ending kindness, sweetness, or beliefs. We all shine, don't we?
Love all you shimmering, shining ladies.
(Oh, OK. All you happy, sweet, syrupy, shiny, Canadian guys, too.)
(PS My apologies for the commercial. YouTube won't allow embedding of this video so I had to go elsewhere. Grrrrr.)
