In Solace of the Road (see my review here), main character Holly Hogan grabs her foster mom's blond wig and runs away from home, searching for her mother.
I already know where my mother is, so I scrapped the running away part of the equation and instead merely stole the wearing-a-blong-wig part for my second adventure.
Here is me in the aforementioned blong wig:
Here is me at work in the aforementioned blond wig:
|I forgot to smile|
The most fun part was seeing people's reactions who knew me. The wig was a big hit at the morning staff meeting at the library where I work. I, however, spent the entire meeting with a face as red as a beet trying to be as unnoticeable as possible (again, my decided lack of chutzpah was quite evident). Mostly people I know just looked at me and grinned, not quite sure what to make of me. I got many compliments on the blond hair, and lots of questions of "are you having more fun as a blond?" Nobody was cruel or dismissive (which probably has more to do with the fact that the people I work with are used to me doing goofy things).
Unlike Holly's experience, the people I interacted with who didn't know me didn't treat me the slightest bit differently than they did when I looked like my normal self (which I thought was curious, if a bit anticlimactic).
Adventure status: successfully accomplished
Price of adventure: $0 (I actually already owned the blond wig).
Time of adventure: I wore the wig for about 6 hours, then it got too hot and itchy.
All in all, it was an interesting adventure, but I don't think I'll be wearing a blond wig again any time soon. Not enough chutzpah.
