When "True Grit" first came out, I was in the summer of my 6th grade year. Kim Darby played Mattie and I, being a bit of an oddball in my pre-teen years, loved her short, pixie hair. As my mom never went to a salon to have her own hair cut, she naturally put herself in charge of any cutting to be done on ours. My mother told me she could re-create Kim Darby's cut on me. The extremely unfortunate result of that particular episode of my mother running with scissors swore me off of a super short cut for life.
Given the recent punches life has thrown me I figured I might as well try a new disguise. If trouble can't recognize me, how can it find me? I gathered up all the courage and grit I could call upon without alcohol and called Lisette for a new cut - truly different - a length I haven't seen since 7th grade. Reinvention all the way.
Note to self: More eye makeup to offset bigger looking nose. Tend to those drooping eyelids sooner than later.
