I get the feeling we're supposed to read this phoenetically. And if that's correct, I am going to have to assume that "comeing" is pronounced with a long O. Which means the correct spelling should have been "combing."
And thusly translated, I believe Anon 8:30 wants to know if the reason I'm not more entertaining is because the real me has been locked away, combing backs.
Which I think is both a thoughtful and amazingly intuitive concern.
Because you see, faithful readers, Anon 8:30 is right. The real reason my blog isn't better?
I spend all of my time combing Ish's back hair.
When we first started dating, I tried to ignore the long, golden locks flowing from his shoulder blades. But as happens, once we were out of that mooney-eyed, love-struck phase of the relationship and onto the pimple-popping, you-might-not-want-to-go-near-the-bathroom-for-a-while phase, the back hair needed to be addressed.
He tried shaving it, but he could only reach the top half of his back, and not very well at that. Then he offered to have me use the electric razor. And I did. Except of course this just made the hair grow back longer and thicker and fuller than before. And the more I shaved it, the faster it would return.
Eventually, we gave up trying to get rid of the hair, and decided to simply enjoy it for what it is.
Sometimes I braid it. Sometimes I use mousse. Sometimes, when we're feeling really crazy, I'll apply a liberal dose of Sun-In and Ish will spend the afternoon walking around the Tenderloin shirtless and saying "dude" a lot.
Oh, and there was that one time we went to the 80s party and I went hog-wild with the crimping iron and Aqua Net.
So. Since I'm spending all my off-hours as Ish's personal back-hair stylist, I hardly have a moment to spare on blogging. Let alone on being "very entertaining."
I hope you can understand. And I thank you, Anonymous 8:30, for bringing this matter to light.
