My Wish.

Do you remember wearing banana clips in your hair? In case you don't remember (or are a guy, and have no earthly business knowing what they are), here are a few:

This is NOT a banana clip:

Sorry, found the above picture while I was searching on google image...I HAD to figure out a way to use it in this post. Back to the hair care subject at hand.

I love banana clips. I pine for them. And my wish is that they were cool again. Back when they were in style, I was 13, and my hair looked like this:

This is not me. It's Dorothy Hamill during some Olympic medal ceremony. But that is EXACTLY what my hair looked like. Not banana clip-friendly. Or looking-like-a-girl-friendly either. But that is a WHOLE other can of worms we're not going to address today.

Now I have long, thick hair. With a set of hot rollers and a banana clip, I would be unstoppable. (At least in my head I would be.) Plenty of things have come back in style. For instance, skinny jeans made a return to being trendy, so why can't banana clips? Maybe in the meantime, I will go ahead and bring them back anyway. Lindsay Lohan brought leggings back into our lives without asking our opinion, so I will charge forward with the banana clip movement.

Who's with me?? Anyone?

No one?


Well, how about we bring banana clips back, Levar Burton style?

*It's plain to see I had WAY to much fun on Google Image this morning.

OMG this totally reminds me of Jenny (AKA second wife) who used to wear them in the beginning of our relationship...We didn't meet unti almost 2000! Holy crap. I can't wait to send this to her. Then she can read that I made fun of her (banana clip lovin/scrunchie wearing-ness on the internet.
I must add that its been AT LEAST two years since she's worn a banana clip. AT LEAST.

Awwww crap - dare I admit that I still own at least two and that I do on occasion wear them when no one is looking!

I realize that my above comment made it sound like there is an actual second wife in our lives (as in, previous marriage or some weird polygamy thing).
We're not polygamists, nor have we ever been married to anyone besides each other.
But, if we WERE polygamists, I am SURE there would be a banana clip wearing wife.

OH, return of the leggings was Lindsay's doing? How does that girl hold so much influence? I believe black nail polish is also to her credit...

I currently own every color banana clip in the pastel rainbow. I've been a proud owner of about 10 of them since 1987. I'll join your army, Yen.

p.s. that was dorothy hammill winning gold at the 1976 innsbruck olympics.
