Let’s Talk About What I Did In First Grade…

When I was in first grade (it might have been kindergarten, I’m not really sure) we lived in Texas and I attended the grade school in our small military town. Not unlike many elementary schools in my day (they probably still do this) we had show and tell. I distinctly remember one day when it was my turn for show and tell and I forgot to bring a special item. The quick thinking six (maybe five) year old that I was, I grabbed the hair brush from my backpack and quickly came up with a story about why that brush was so special. I don’t remember exactly what I said but I remember telling my classmates (and my smiling teacher who undoubtably thought I was ‘imaginative’) that the very hair brush I was holding in my hand could dry your hair while you brushed it. It was ‘magical’ and I was proud of myself for coming up with something on such short notice. Now let’s fast forward a few (okay, several) years to today when I had the television on while I was getting ready and I heard about this:

John Frieda

What is this marvelous contraption, you might ask!? It’s no other than a blow drying hairbrush! Now I’m not saying that the creator, who works for John Frieda, was a classmate of mine back in first grade (or maybe Kindergarten) but if I could go back in time, I would give myself a pat on the back.

Dear Six (or Five) Year Old Self,

You are a genius.

  1. I have no idea why I have such a vivid memory of that particular day in school but I was telling the husband about that a few months ago (just randomly thinking about it) and then I was reminded of it when I heard about this new brush. I’m not going to deny that I kind of want to buy one. 🙂
