Today is the Saturday I wanted to take Kita to Dave and Buster’s but it was the only day she could schedule her hair appointment. So I will continue to pursue her to get some fun in her life. I’m just floating around the city when I get a text.
“Hey, Charles. Look at my hair now.”
Kita sends me a pic of her in the hairdresser’s chair with a bunch of tin foil in her hair creating her blonde halo. She looks ridiculous.
“You look like Storm from the X-Men.”
“It’s like a silver head dress!”
“So happy I’m going blonder!!!”
“It’s going to look so awesome! I’m running some errands in the area. Need a Frappuccino?”
“I ate a banana recently, but thank you! It’s too cold outside to be running errands.”
“Yay! Bananas are better for you than coffee drinks. Oh, and it’s not too bad out now.”
“I talked to Achilles about working there! I want to do it. I’m just looking at logistics with my classes and me going away for breaks. My classes are different so I’m making my schedule next week, so I’ll have a decision by then ok? Also, thank you for the Honey Grow card. (Smiley emoji)”
“Sounds great. No worries. We’ll work with your schedule. Take your time working it out. You’re welcome! I knew the one person that could put that card to good use!”
An hour later…
“Can you make sure Achilles knows I’m still pondering it? I feel like he thinks I told him 100% yes. I brought up the schedule thing but I think he thought differently. Oh yea, I used the Honey Grow card today and it was delicious!”
“I’ll talk to him Monday. He and I already have decided to split the schedule between the two of us until we find someone. We’re going to open the gym in December so I may take more of his shifts while he runs the gym. Don’t stress, Kita. Take your time and we’ll figure it out.
Two hours later…
“Thanks Charles. I fell asleep. I’m exhausted for no reason.”
“I’m sure you’re tired, Kita. Big day. Hours at the salon creating the perfect blonde highlights! I hope you like it.”
“I do, I’m just so dead right now. And the weather and darkness so early never helps. Haha.”
“I get it. I just wrote an article for the salon that we’re going to send out to our members about Seasonal Affective Disorder. We worked on it today and I know it’s important that we communicate with our clients about the importance of how we can help them.”
“That’s awesome! Yeah, it really does affect your moods/emotions.”
“It’s paramount that we communicate the importance of controlled UV emissions to our clients for their well being during these cold, dark winter months in the Northeast. I’m glad you get it.”
“Yes because it definitely helps!!!”
“Well we’re here for you to absorb your power through our light! I’m going to do a stand up session before I start work tomorrow. Oh, and I have some new ideas to get you darker!!!”
“Thank you!!! (Smiley emoji) Thank goodness for tanning! And what are your ideas?”
“I have a special lotion, (Only for you my #1) and I want to try a 12 minute over exposure session and see what that does. Always creative.”
“Oh my! A special lotion???? The tingling one?”
“Yes! But it has a very gentle tingling vanilla and chocolate scent that I’m giving only to you. Always working hard for my Yelp reviews.”
“Wow sounds delicious!!! Hahah.”
By then it was almost midnight, so we both went to sleep.
Thing was, I wish she were sleeping next to me.
