Hands-free phone talking: Yay or Nay?

I love how technology is growing, and I do love the fact we can have hands-free conversations while we’re out and about; however, it does make me feel uncomfortable talking hands-free, because I look like a crazy person. It’s just not for me. Honestly, if you like it that’s fine, I’m not going to make fun of you or anything, but it was very unnerving when I used to talk hands-free in public (I stopped doing this a long time ago).

When this new trend came out, I thought a nearby psych ward just released their most challenged patients. Sometimes, I even thought they were talking to me (about nonsense of course, but it was awkward nonetheless). I know it does have its benefits, especially if you’re walking from the supermarket with your hands full of groceries, but in my opinion, I don’t like other people listening on my conversations and there’s no way I’m going to attract them by making them think I’m talking to myself.

-“No, you don’t understand. I was talking to Sarah”

-“Sure you were, and meet my invisible friend, Roger”

-“No, really, she’s on the other side”

-“Oh, she’s a ghost? Well, why didn’t you say so? Tell me more about it while I get you some medication.”

Daily Prompt: Unexpected Guests

The Daily Post saysYou walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.


First of all, I’d be surprised if I left a slice of cake available for strangers to indulge in. Seriously, leftover cake? That’s a big nope in my world. But, for the sake of this prompt, we’ll pretend there is one slice.

I think the best way to deal with ‘unexpected’ guests, is by doing something unexpected. As soon as they hear my footsteps reaching the front door, they’ll probably start giggling, breathing heavy, or making munching noises. I will be able to hear this, because my hearing is sensitive to out-of-the-ordinary noises. It’d go something like this (in a perfect scenario):

Me: =unlocks front door and enters the house=

Strangers (we’ll call them Orcs): =evil grin and giggle=

Me: Oh, hi Frodo and Sam! You’re early for the re-enactment

Orcs: =puzzled look=

Me: Don’t tell me you already forgot your lines. Remember, in this play, Frodo gets killed. Let me go grab the weapons.

Me: =as I walk away to a room to call 911= We’re using real ones this time! No screaming, though.

Hopefully, that’d scare them away, but at least it’d give me time to lock myself somewhere while I call for help.

A creature that lurks in the corners of scalps. It does not have a specific target nor time when it strikes. It just becomes one of those days, a bad hair day. Oh, the horror! 

I try not to have bad hair days, but my hair has a mind of its own. I don’t use hairspray or weird chemicals, because it makes it ten times worse. To be honest, my hair can sometimes look better upon waking, than after I brush it. I keep my hair shoulder-length, so I won’t have to use hair bands. I use hair clips to keep in balanced, but most of the time I wear it loose and straight. My natural hair is curly, but after straightening for a long time, it has become wavy. I love it that way, but sadly it gets on the way of daily activities. For example, when I eat, my hair apparently gets hungry, too and finds its way on my food. Totally gross, but hey, at least it’s MY hair and not others’.

My friends think I like to try different hairstyles throughout the day, but the truth is, my hair just morphs into different shapes, and it doesn’t matter whether I stay still or move -and you thought Medusa looked creepy- but I hope one day my hair will behave. The good news is, hats suit me, and hat hair seems to keep my hair on a time-out for a moment.
