Shayna? Is That You?

I had an eerie experience recently when I stopped at Great Clips for a haircut.  This one is located just inside the Fry's Grocery store that is near to me.  The best part of Great Clips is that you can use their app to find one close to you and which one has the shortest waiting time.  You then "sign in" on your phone and head over.  It eliminates a lot of waiting around....something retired people just hate doing.

The hair stylist I had was named Skyla and was a beautiful Latina girl.  But it was her voice and manner of speaking that threw me completely off.

When my eyes were closed and I listened to her I heard my cousin Shayna speaking.  It was kinda creepy, because I would never let my cousin stand behind me with a razor knife poised over my head.

It wasn't just her voice, her laugh was identical and even the phrases she used and the way she timed what she said was Shayna in every sense of the word.

So, although it was comforting to hear the voice of someone I love the image of her holding that razor was just too spooky.  Sorry's just the way it is.

Long Live the Queen


  1. I heard you actually did run into someone you knew watching a Packer game!

  2. They say there's a double for each of us somewhere. We're just not all lucky enough to find one. Those moments must have been wonderful. You have a super day my friend, hugs, Edna B.
