My hairdryer, who has been my (almost) daily companion for 10+ years, bit the proverbial (why do I feel like Eugene Meltzner every time I use that word?) dust last week.
Old friend, you have been with me through bobs, short and sassy cuts, shoulder-length and chin-length, through the rich, full days of pregnancy hair and the post-partum months when it seemed I would go bald, through blow-drying my entire head upside-down to learning to use a flat brush (my triceps thank you!). I will miss you, my light-weight, perfect-heat pal.
But…hello, shiny new friend! I hope you will be given the gift of longevity like your predecessor. And your blue? It’s the closest earthly representation I’ve ever seen of my favorite color–not turquoise, not cobalt, but this beautiful in-between that truly kicks hinder. Photos cannot do you justice. Also? Be kind to me.
