“You always want what you can’t have.”

Tom, Daddy and I finish up dinner at home.

Daddy: You know, people always want what they can’t have. I see these Asian women with this long, straight, beautiful black hair, and they dye it all kinds of wacky colors, like orange. Do you know how many women would kill for long, straight black hair?

Me: I don’t know.

(Daddy is quite an expert on women’s hair fashions.)


  1. alice murphy says:

    I recently cut my hair from mid back to shoulder length. On the ride to the train station the other morning my stepfather said “I like your hair but it needs to be styled better, just add some pizzazz” “um, ok, a couple people at work commented yesterday that they really liked it” “well who ever tells you they don’t like your hair cut?”
    sadly he’s sort of correct on both points. sigh.

  2. You should start wearing a long straight hair wig around him and see what he says.


  3. I do have to agree with Daddy on his wisdom. Just ask my bf’s ex, she’ll tell you this is true. However, his example is another story. Doesn’t he realize that some people just need to add their own individualism and style…ok, I know the answer is no. Plus, highlights brighten my face and make me look oh so pretty!

    • Lol I have no idea what he thinks but I’ve probably heard him say this literally dozens of times. He probably thought it up the first time he saw an Asian woman with dyed hair. Maybe some time in the 80′s when jet black straight hair was to die for. To dye for? Ha!
