Things that I would do if I were rich: part one.

So I am sure that we’ve all got a list or at least a few ideas of what we would do if we were rich. If we won the lottery, married a wealthy man or -god forbid- managed to earn a decent living on our very own there are ways that we can all imagine spreading that cash around.

Some are noble. Some are…less noble (selfish?!)

Today I am going to talk about the number one on my list which is most certainly NOT a noble way to splash my hard earned dollars….so, here goes…if I had a substantially large amount of disposable income I would….pay someone to wash my hair at least once a week.

Yup, that’s it.

I don’t thing I would but expensive handbags or get regular massages, manicures or pedicures, I would just like someone to wash my hair, please and thank you.

If I fail to earn enough money to make this happen I think that I may have to find a hairdresser to marry or pray that I die and come back as a pet dog in my next life.

I can already feel the glares and looks of confusion- wouldn’t you donate to charity or invest or ANY THING ELSE?! Well, as I said, this is only ONE thing on my list.

Anyhow, those who have never experienced someone washing their hair can not relate. I’m on this topic because I went for my 6 weekly visit to the hairdresser last night- I really do look forward to it – especially the moment when she goes to get rid of those alien foils and rinses and washed and add the toner and and…well…it’s just glorious! A few weeks ago I was in Kuala Lumpur and I paid $7.50 AUD for a wash and dry and it was amazing. Perhaps I need to move there.

Is it because it reminds me of being a child and having my hair washed? Is it because someone is actually paying attention to ME? Is it the amazing head massage involved or is it because I’m too lazy to put in any real effort normally so it’s the only time that my hair gets a real clean…?

What ever it is, I love it.

Pathetic yet probably expensive – but hey I’m cutting back on chocolate so I’ve gotta have some kind of indulgence!

So my advice for today – as pathetic as it – is to go and get your hair washed by some one else. Also, if you get it done by a student hairdresser it will be cheaper AND you will be doing a good deed by allowing someone to use you to practice on (if that’s a risk you’re willing to take) – but then it’s win win!
