The long and short about The Hairstyle Change

After clocking many, many days of MC following her break up, Office Bimbo was finally back for work this morning.

I don’t know if this applies to all females, but for the ones I encountered, they all go for a change of hairstyle following a heartbreak. Sushi Eating Friend had a very short and manly crop after she found out about the ‘CCAs’ of her cheating boyfriend back in uni. Similarly, Office Bimbo adopted a shorter do too. For the sake of illustration, here’s some before and after pics of Office Bimbo:

I think it’s all very troublesome. Besides having your heart-broken, you have to burn your pockets at some expensive hair salon. I find that totally illogical.

“Sian, you just don’t get it do you?” sighed Sushi Eating Friend when I asked her about it back in our uni days. “A change of hairstyle represents a change of perspectives, and in a way, liberation from the shackles of yesterday.”

“But I don’t cut my hair when I get dumped by my crushes!” I protested feebly. “When I need cheering up, there’s always faithful little KFC waiting for me!”

“Aha, and that’s the reason why you have a paunch and will remain unloved for the rest of your pathetic existence.”

For what I don’t understand from Sushi Eating Friend’s words of wisdom, I think Office Bimbo would, because she betrayed absolutely no signs of feeling heart broken, and even came back smiling following an extended lunch-cum-shopping trip.

Or at least that was what I thought. On my way to pass her a file just now, I stopped a few steps from her cubicle after hearing sobs from her direction.

I think I will wait for a while more before passing her the file.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    SEF is right. Cutting off hair means cutting off ties with the past, and moving on. That is a small price to pay to look good for a new phase in life. Anyway, why you worry, you get to see a new girl at no cost what! ;)

    Hey! The opportunity to swop in (like a hungry wolf) and kiss her tears away has presented itself!

    What are you waiting for!

    Carpe diem!

    maybe she's crying over the loss of her hair?

    offer to get her hair extensions then, like what xiaxue did.

    cutting hair is therapeutic!

    well at least it morphs into therapy when the weather gets so freaking hot and the only way to feel better is to chop the hair off.

    did i just veer off? oops.

    woah! SBS, u also know how to 'zhuo ren' hor.

    Maybe too far off, but definately the chance to be kissed presents itself leh!

    for me it was always haircut and dye after exams. :D

    damn those were good times.

    so yeah, it's not weird ok?

    Hmmm.. Hairstyle change could be linked to something spiritual.. like what the monks or nuns do when they go into service....

    In a way, glad that Office Bimbo did not do a "Top supermodel" thingy where they go bald and let the inner beauty shine through.....

    then again... without hair and without character, what would OB be? another empty vessel?

    Sunflower: Wah! Then I hope you didn't have too many exams, haha :)....

    Tracy: Is hentai included? Heh.

    Twinkles: I think you are right. And I think she looksmuch better with short hair too, haha.

    Zhe Bin: Tell me about it. I can't even afford a BMX!

    Lakside Girl: There's just one problem. I don't like Office Bimbo!

    Eileen: Unlikely lah, she was bragging to everyone how everyone is saying she is chio-er with short hair :P

    RazzleDazzled: The previous two times I had a haircut, I nearly fainted when the evil barber was done :(

    Green Ogre: Indeed. I even restrained myself from pressing ehr for the cab fare!

    Adrenaline: Come come, cut as short my mine steady? We can even make a trip to EC HOuse together :)

    Saroette: But I don't like her leh :( If I make love to the girl hor, I have to marry her one, and I can't imagine the rest of my life with Office Bimbo :(

    PJ: It's not weird! It's expensive! Haha....

    Sam Fisher: Totally unrelated, but they make people go bald at those 'Fast Forward' challenges in Amazing Race too. Heh.

    Nyokk: I hate to admit this, but yes, she does look nicer :)

    I'd go on an eating binge whenever I feel upset, the notion of going for haircuts has never crossed my mind; does that mean I'm weird or something?

  • At Wednesday, September 06, 2006 10:32:00 PM, Blogger Sibeh Sian said…

    Yanni: The only thing I did was to delay giving her the file! Me no SNAG! Haha....

    ASF: On the contrary, I think you are perfectly normal! Eating binges are good. Especially when they are tasty and sinful, haha....
