Missing: The Girlie Gene
I lack the gene that enables one to differentiate between pink and salmon. I tell you this not only to explain the color of my kitchen, but also to provide you with some insight so that perhaps you will think my next question to be a little less odd.
Mind you, I can throw a football in a perfect spiral, tie a cherry stem with my tongue (may have even won a contest for doing so, once upon a time *ahem*) and well hell I can't think of anything else that I'm particularly good at right now but I'm sure there's something. Might even be several somethings. I assure you that none of those somethings, however, include a use for pink ribbons, fashion, dancing (ok, fine, walking too) in heels, or squealing with glee when the stairmaster is free.
Point being, I'm definitely lacking the girlie gene.
I've lived a fine life without a girlie gene thusfar, I just need a little help here and there with the girlie essentials. Like applying lip liner, knowing which celebs are gay, and knowing what you gals who work out all the time do about washing your hair. Moreso-- if you sweat it up at the gym and wash your hair everyday, doesn't that make your locks into a frazzled disaster nest? What if you're sweating it up twice a day?? Are my options either to spend twice as much time under the much-despised hairdryer inferno and twice as much cash on product and salons, or to be forever sweatygross about the scalp? Please say like, no.
Any input appreciated. My follicles and the people who have to smell me thank you.
