Some of you might know that Jamaica has been under a weather warning for the last few days. There is a nice big wet tropical wave sitting over the island. So it’s not the typical Jamaican rain we’ve been getting – but rather it’s the grey sky and wet all day thing that’s been going on.

Now, I don’t think of myself as a super practical person. I can’t change a tyre. I wear heels even though I know I’ll be standing all day.

I am also not overly into hairstyles. I deliberately have one that I can wash myself easily and that doesn’t require much attention. I live in the tropics, I want to be able to go swimming without having to consider a trip to the hairdresser afterwards.

Yesterday, I gave a girl from work a lift up the road. She started to complain about the rain – she had just been to the hairdresser. And she had got a hairstyle. The long, flowing locks kinda style. The miracle grow shampoo had obvious done it’s work.

But the hairstyle can’t get wet. Otherwise ‘bad things will happen to it’. (My mind wandered at that point… bad things… maybe it would start attacking people like gremlins did when they got wet…)

So I was kind. I lent her my umbrella. (She with the hair didn’t think to carry one… she was just fortunate that my mum is more practical than me and had given me an umbrella to keep in my car)!

So this morning, it was still raining. So I arrived in work wet from the walk from the car park.

But at least the hairstyle was still dry!!!
