Maybe I should begin defining the 2013 Me by incorporating curlers. I wonder if you can still get those big plastic numbers in pastel colors. I could crank up my whole miserable head, coat it with an atrocious amount of hairspray, and cover the terrifying behemoth with one of those filmy hairnets. But I wouldn't call it a hairnet, I'd call it a scarf. Imagine me in the discount grocery with my hairnet and hulking winter coat and boots--a domestic Medusa. I'd be at once mythical and real.
How beautiful is that?
