In my last post, Avanti! No, wait!, I explored my decision-making process as it relates to my hair, which I appear constitutionally incapable of not highlighting. This despite senectitude staring me baldly in the face every time I peer into a wall-mounted magnifying mirror in search of errant mole hairs or, as my friend Linda Hoyle has christened them, “Grisseldas”. Why do I subject myself to this horror? So that I will not look like Mrs. Potato Head left too long to her own devices in a burlap sack in a corner of your scary basement.
Which brings me to my point: way back in June of this year, I switched from publishing this blog on Friday to Tuesday. I did this because, according to stats, this was a better day for such endeavors. Since then I have noted no appreciable uptick in readers or comments and, given my schedule, Friday is a better fit. So, this will be the last Tuesday post. Instead, look for me on Friday, beginning September 18, 2015. There I will be: no Grisseldas, no eyebrows, highlighted and with bells.
Unless I change my mind.
