No Autographs, please

Cliff Stockton is a friend of ours who happens to own Northwest Building Supply in Oklahoma City. We were able to get many items from his company for our new house. Yesterday, he called Chris up and asked if they could film a commercial for his business in our home. We obliged and were happy to help. When they arrived, Cliff informed me that he’ll need me to sit in and be the “consumer” in the commercial. “I don’t think so,” I said cocking my head to the side to show some attitude. But, he’s a salesman…a darn good one and now, yours truly, will be on TV. I absolutely looked like death warmed over. While I work from home, make no mistake about it…I still dress like a woman who stays home. For you men folk who may not know what that means, it means that I look at my day each morning to decide whether or not a shower and make-up is even a necessity and whether or not I need to take off my work-out clothes. I’m just sayin’. Anyway, while I bathe and am a relatively clean person, I chose yesterday to just throw the hair up into a barrette. I did, however, put on a little bit of eye liner and mascara to darken up these baby blues that I have simply because we went to the Home Depot and I didn’t want to frighten any of the employees. Another detrimental issue for me is my hair situation. My last cut and color was in late October. My roots are dark and I’ve actually seen a few grays take up residence. Dear Lord. (My hairdresser has been out of commission for the last few months as their family is dealing with a trauma with her grandson.) About a month ago in my hair despair, I could no longer endure the length and decided to go to….dare I say it? Pro-Cuts. Stop it. I know what you are going to say. Hear me out. I’ve been to many a Pro-Cuts in my life. I’ve walked in and usually just asked for a trim. Trims are easy, and I always walked out with a trim. Never a problem. Until that fateful early February day. The young man who “trimmed” my hair must have never attended a hair-cutting school. To this day, I have no idea what he did. It looks AW-FUL. I have tried to do a plethora of things to make my botched up hairdo look better, but to no avail. The only saving grace for this disaster is that I don’t have to leave the house too often because I don’t have a “real” job where I have to say, leave the house or put on shoes or even run a comb through my hair. And now I’m going to be a movie star on television. My only request from you, my internet peeps who live in the Oklahoma City area, is to please turn your head when you see the next Northwest Building Supply commercial. You’ll thank me later.

  1. You’re so beautiful and your eyes are so full of life that believe me – no one will even notice the hair – OR if they do you might just start one of those hair crazes and every one will ask for the “Cindy cut”. 🙂

  2. Hey, I saw you yesterday and you looked GOOD! (as always!)….and talk to Ali about your hair. She IS trained! LOL

    Looking forward to the movie(commercial) star!

  3. Okay. So, you said,

    “…to darken up these baby blues that I have simply because we went to the Home Depot …”

    which I had to read a couple of times because for a minute I thought you got your eyes at Home Depot.

    I don’t know a lot about the Home Depot, because I don’t go in there because I’m allergic to testosterone, but I would be really surprised to find that they were purveyors of eyeballs. It’s okay. I understand now.

    Reminds me of the summer of 1996, when I was 84 weeks pregnant. And had braces. My husband is a medical administrator. His father is a surgeon. I was informed that I was to appear in a commercial for their surgery center. And there was a photo shoot too. Good times. The photo is still displayed in their office reception area. I’ve always known they didn’t like me.

    Can’t wait to see the commercial. 🙂

  4. These are the days I wish I had cable…the story was even more entertaining the second time around…Just picturing your face as you were telling it…
    You have to tell about little Sethers–he’s so CUTE!
    Mama Cindy…I dont’ care how blotchy your hair looks, you are B-E-A-U-T-Ful! Looking forward to seeing your famous granite countertops…and of course my movie star mentor!
    LOVE YA!

  5. I can’t wait to see it! I know I have never met you in real life but I can’t imagine from the pictures I have seen here on your blog that it is as bad as you make it out to be. Now for the hair situation, I can TOTALLY sympathize. I agree with the others that your hair is not what everyone is going to be looking at. Just smile your big smile and I am sure everything will be great!

  6. I tried saving money and cutting my 2 year old daughter’s bangs completely on my own. When we went grocery shopping a nice old lady came up to up to us to ask if my daughter tried cutting her own hair…My mom said that the difference between a good and bad haircut is two weeks… 🙂

  7. Cindy,
    Does this mean that us none OKC people won’t get to see it. Couldn’t you do a streaming video of the commercial for all of us. 🙂 I really am laughing. You are a beautiful woman I am sure that they will sell tons of building supplies thanks to you.
