College

When I was growing up we had the Amy Grant Age To Age tape. I used to listen to that tape at night when I was putting my pink sponge rollers in my hair in preparation for the next day when I would brush the curls out, secure them in a banana clip and top it off with a big pink, lace bow. Oh dear Lord I know.

During this nightly routine one thought often crossed my mind. Night School. I wanted to take night classes when I went to college. Do you know why? Because silly, everyone knows your hair looks best at night. Especially right before you go to bed. You toss it up to wash your face and there you are in your pj's, looking at the reflection of a beauty queen in the mirror. Then you turn off the light and go to bed.

AGREED!

And P.S. I still listen to Amy Grant when I get ready in the mornings - Heart in Motion/House of Love/The Collection AND her Christmas CD are all on my computer. Classic.
