Good Hair Day?

Today, every half-hour or so, Chez would look up from whatever he was doing, see me across the room, and his face would suddenly light with joy. He’d dash to me, declare jubilantly in his high squeaky voice, I love you!, then hug and/or kiss me, before bounding away as quickly as he’d arrived.

Today, Maddie would look up from whatever she was doing, point at me and giggle while shaking her head.

Today Kevin told me I am his favorite beautiful teacher.

Today Ms. Jewls and Alyce talked about my hair as though I weren’t in the room. Luckily they said nice things.


Today, Cass studied me very seriously as she walked a full circle around me. “Some of your hair is gone-d,” she said.

“Do you like it?” I queried.

Cass thought for a moment then shrugged. “You look the same,” she said. “Just different.”

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Are we going to get to see the new Miss A in pictures.

    Good things happen when one least expects it, I have some news for you but not to be shared via the public Internet yet.

    A wonderful day is wished for you.

  2. Some of my hair is gone-d too. Darn jeans, I mean, genes!!

    Thank you for your very kind comment about waiting to show my blog to your partner. I hope he has as much fun reading it as I have writing it!

  3. Doug — my motto exactly!

    Mumma — together. Yep. Don’t hold your breath!

    Bill — see my response to Mumma.

    Melli — oh, a trim that took about 4 inches off the back. I have one of those kicky little bobs, short in the back and longer in the front. It really slimmed my face!

    Polona — I still do, thank you! (I am also very humble and modest.)

    Dr. John — Cass has a way with words.

    David — I believe OC would also appreciate and commiserate with your first two sentences above.
