B stands for lots of things - bees, boys, basketballs, baseballs, bocci balls. But this week, for me anyway, B stands for bangs. As someone who has worn her hair really, really short (think Jamie Lee Curtis) for lots of years, there are some adjustments that need to be made when you decide to grow your hair out again. Apparently for me, it's remembering the correct way to trim your bangs. The correct way to trim your bangs:

Yes, that would be a picture of my grill. Sorry the quality is not so great, but as you can imagine, I was a bit preoccupied.

Make sure that you stop by and visit Jenny and see what everyone else thinks of the letter B!

Oh man! Didn't your mother ever tell you not to get too close to the fire? Be careful. Hope you have a great hair stylist to fix it!

Yikes, Kat! Now, that had to hurt! Be careful! About that purse...Page and I went shopping and decided to go in the Jimmy Choo store just so we could say we touched JC shoes! lol I found a terrifiic purse and the little sales gal said..."Oh, that purse is at a great price point...$875." We could hardly get out of the store fast enough to start laughing! lol Hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie

Oh no, did you really burn your bangs?

Marla at Always Nesting said...

Too funny but not really :) As long as you didn't get hurt, your bangs will grow back.

Kathysue said...

OMG Kat I am so sorry but I am cracking up.I hate the smell of burning hair, You must have been horrified. I am assuming you are fine since you are writing this with such humor. Stay away from open flames, don't forget candles, I have seem lots of footage of poor brides veils going ablaze. Hugs Kathysue

shopannies said...

I have been thinking about having bangs as well I have not had them since a young child but now I may rethink that

Deb said...

oh boy...I've had some bad bang jobs...but never by a grill...I love Jenny her blog is great thanks for telling me about her...

Viki said...

OMG, that's terrible but it did make good blog material LOL.

Lois said...

That sounds like a scary way to trim your bangs, but I'm sure it wasn't on purpose!

easternsparkle said...

Oh no I'm imagining it! That'll teach you to put your hair back when you're cooking!! Great B by the way

Lucy said...

Hey! I love meeting new people. Thanks for coming over and commenting. Yes...I love old Hank! He gives me lots of blog fodder. Great blog you have. I just may have to move you in to my sidebar. :)

Julie Schuler said...

Hi! That is a totally acceptable spelling of bocce or bocci. They are both good!

mbkatc230 said...

Yep folks, this really did happen. No major burns, but nice "crinkly" bangs. Not the recommended method for trimming bangs or a perm! But it did give me something to blog about lol. Kathy

Shellbelle said...

Honestly, when I saw the title of your post and knowing a bit about you, I thought it was going to be about banging on the drums, lol. Now that I've read the whole thing, banging on drums just might be a better thing for you to do than trying to get the grill started!

Prim2Pink said...

Ouch!! Bet that didn't smell too good. And you can't get a comb through it either. How would I know?? hummmmm

Jackie said...

lol! that is a very good way of how NOT to trim your bangs ! Excellent post !

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh Kathy there is hardly anything that smells as bad a s burning hair! I hope you are OK! I also hope supper wasn't lost in the flames.

Jo said...

LOL well ... at least you still have your eyebrows ... right???

RNSANE said...

Uggggg, I cannot imagine your horror to discover you'd singed your hair! Let's hope, at the very least, your eyelashes remained intact!! How did you ever get so close???

Well, at least, your bangs will eventually grow out!
