I am convinced - CONVINCED!!! - that if my hair is cute for zumba, my hips move better. I'm serious. Please remember that this is me we're talking about, so the cuteness of the hair is relative. And, let's not forget that I have an egg shaped head. This is a problem. Can't clip the hair in the wrong place or the egginess of my head is more pronounced. Also, those of you who have known me for a while know that I am NOT a dancer in any way, shape or form. In fact, when I had to dance in a play my senior year in high school I tripped, got dragged across the floor, and had splinters in my ass for weeks. True story.
Anyway, yesterday morning when I went to zumba, I did a little experiment. Normally I tie my hair back into a ponytail so it stays out of my face, but yesterday I blew it out (I had slept on it and the top o' the egg was a little poofy) and wore it down. Man, you should have seen my hips. They were like buttah. I swear I wasn't the worst in the class and again, this is ME we're talking about! But I didn't take the fan into consideration. Once it got turned on it was like a Saturday Night Live skit. I couldn't see. I had to do the dreaded behind-the-ear tuck, further pronouncing to the world "HELLO EGG SHAPED HEAD!". And the sweat didn't help - it made the hair stick to my face and it was a total disaster. So today I'm trying to clip the front piece of my hair back in a teeny tiny clip that is meant for 3 year olds. Slightly to the side, of course. I'm about to leave for class so I'll check back in later and let you know how it went.
The clip is not a good look for me. I have a picture but you will never see it. What's worse, half way through the class I was so hot and sweaty that I had to resort to the ponytail anyway! We're talking both a clip and a ponytail!!! But the good news is I had some buttah hip moments. So maybe I was wrong about the hip-hair link in the first place.
