My Pumpkin Face 
 

Today, I went to a hairdresser for a Birthday party to attend to, and I brought Booksie with me...

'Hello, I would like to handle my unruly pumpkin head. Over this summer, its leaves have gone widespread. I can't keep them neat around my neck, nor can I stop them from being an annoying bayonet while I am using internet or while I am reading in bed. Every morning I think I have combed my head to a perfection, but when I stare at myself in the mirror I still look like a wreck. Can you comprehend?' 

My hairdresser named Fred gingerly answered, 'Of course, I can turn any dickhead president, US or not, into a handsome thoroughbred; and any Cinderella into a beautiful Juliet. But first of all, please tell me what kind of head can you accept? Will that be a Gingerbread? A Copperhead? Or a Brunette?'

I was too engrossed in reading Booksie by the time and absent-mindedly answered, 'Whatever you think will suit me the best.'

One and half hours later, I raised my head and into the mirror I saw what I have spent. My breathe held, my heart checked and my forehead sweat. I thought I would see no more of my pumpkin face but at least a somehow cute vignette, I saw a hybrid of watermelon and pear instead. 

That taught me, no matter what kind of an egg I am, I should learn to respect not regret. 

(But I really don't know about that hardheaded president with a mindset to being depressed and obsessed. )
