The last ten weeks have been like nothing we have ever experienced. I have used the words “quarantine”, “shelter-in-place”, “Covid19”, “Coronavirus” so much that even my 6 year old understands everything is completely different because of one of those words.
I have been introduced to Zoom calls. While not my favorite thing, I understand it is a way to connect and get to “see” others. I also understand like many that you only have to be presentable from the waist up! Business/Professional/Put Together on top and Party/Whatever/PJ pants I have been wearing for three days on the bottom.
During this ten weeks of our “Corona Chronologicals”, Will (14.5) and Chris, my hubby, have talked about the idea of a Mullet. (Like “Business in the Front, Party in the Back” haircut.) Will had no where to be and why not go for this look during his time off. Chris watched a few Youtubes and felt confident that he could make this look happen. So, a couple Saturday nights ago, on our outdoor deck, Chris and Will proceeded to make a memory with hair clippers. Within a few minutes, Will was ready for business and party! I will admit that Will could pull off any haircut. (The kid has good hair!)
This whole experience of Zoom calls in PJ pants and teenagers with mullet reminded me of a meal. A meal that says, “I look like a hot mess with the ingredients I bring to the table but trust me. I mean business!” A meal that says, “Yes, I have Nacho Cheese Doritos all over me but guess what Fancy Pants? You are going to be drooling over the business I bring to your mouth.”
In all seriousness, my boys loved that this momma brought a little party to the dinner table. Don’t knock it until you try it. Seriously, we are all trying new things right now. Go for it!
