the redhanded bandit.

see the title of this post?
given my recent mishaps with red dye,
i have officially adopted that nickname for myself.

except for the part about being a bandit.
but i guess that depends how you define bandit.

in any case,
the situation has improved greatly since yesterday:


thanks to sally's beauty supply and some professional hair-dye remover.

baby steps back to normalcy, eh?
baby steps like this:

when i took my walk of redhanded shame into sally's yesterday i fully expected them to reprimand me and/or laugh at my plight.
kids, that lady didn't even bat an eye!
she looked at my hands and said,
"honey, i've seen it all."

in contrast, i think i freaked the walmart cashier out later.
i saw her staring, i did!

i'm going to play frisbee with a new crowd tonight.
i fully expect to terrify them with my rogue phalanges.

swashbuckling the high seas and such,
katilda the redhanded bandit

A nickname with bandit is always a good thing! But really, this is cracking me up. Sorry for the misfortune, even though it's rather hilarious. And a What About Bob reference??!! Couldn't get any better. I refer to the baby steps advice for a multitude of situations in my life.

Baha! Your red hands are awesome! I'm glad they're getting better and have yet to dye your blonde hair pink!!! Haha.

Ha ha, I didn't even notice today! Maybe that makes you feel better, maybe that tells you nothing, but maybe others will overlook it just the same!

I am so please that you can appreciate a good WAB reference! My favorite is probably when Dr Leo wants him to leave and he yells He can borrow my SLICKER!! bahaha
