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

You could write a whole book of Blondie-isms from the sounds of it.

What did the one blonde say to the other blonde?

I don't know. I don't have a punchline for that yet.

Thanks for the comment. I've only just started reading yours but I already like what I see! :)

Keep writing. That book will come someday.

Blondies are more enjoyable in brownie form.

Paula said...

I would put "dark blonde (naturally medium brown)" - that's what I tend to say.

Not on PASSPORTS though. Why the eff do they NEED your hair colour for a passport anyway? Isn't the photo enough???

Ms. R said...

Ha. The passport lady probably told that story to her friends for weeks.

Blondes ARE gorgeous, they are. It's a colour that makes you stand out.

But I can't go blonde, my hair keeps turning orange whenever it even sniffs a peroxide bottle. Sigh.

Lyla Lou said...

Bweahahaha. Ha. heh.

Sigh....I might've asked the same question.

Lindsay - I think I really could

rs27 - c'mon you must have heard two blondes talk to each other before? Hours of amusement

S&N - Thanks! Now I just need a topic...

Pistols - as is pretty much everything

Paula - ya I never got that either? Plus my passport photo I have dark red hair and now I have blonde so how does that help anyone?

ms r. - now that would be funny

Kate - mine tries to turn red no matter what color I dye it. I have an war-on-yellow going on, but I'm aggressive with the ash tones

Lyla Lou - I thought about it...

Surviving - she's hilarious

Well-Intentioned - anytime! Thanks for allowing me to!
