Pop Quiz: At the salon, are you the type to chit chat with the hairdresser or remain silent through the duration of the haircut?
Me: anyone near me in the salon will think I am a mute and look around for my interpreter because except for a "yeah, like that," "looks good" "yeah" or an "I know, fo' real," I am not a chatty cathy. Getting my hair cut is down time for me. I'd rather not talk. I don't know you. I don't ever need to fill the silence. I will let there be silence until the cows come home, and all awkwardness ensues. I'm not unkind, and I will gladly answer your questions, but if there is a lull, I happily let it be. I enjoy getting my hair manhandled and am not super picky about the cut so it's just some good R&R for me.
