I miss my loved ones, but I miss my hairdresser more

If you saw me now, you'd call me a holy show. I'm a cross between the Wild Woman of Borneo and the Madwoman of Chaillot. It's the hair. It's a sight. Everyone's locks have grown during lockdown, but some people have lucky hair, which just looks longer and fuller. Mine just sprouts in annoying wisps all over the place.

Yes, I miss the dear loved ones I cannot see to hug in lockdown and I miss meeting friends for a coffee, or a meal, and I miss dreadfully not being able to go anywhere: but by Heaven, I miss my hairdresser.

Not that I'm usually a very regular devotee of the hair salon. (I've known American ladies who visited "the beauty parlour" every single day.)
