Welcome to Peter’s blog, the one and only place where you can read about the one and only Alecia Garlic! Also, her slightly-less-significant-brother, Typhon.
In this post, however, the readers will have a unique opportunity to read about both of them! Here is the diary entry from Alecia.
Thursday, the 16th of May, year 2013 A.D.
I have just returned from a dream-come-true shopping trip. Although I had some difficulty motivating Typhon to take me to the mall, all my troubles were well worth while!
There were a large assortment of clothing stores in the mall, and I shopped around just enough to replace my lost clothing collection. My favorite purchase: a pleated skirt with matching tan leather boots. I put them on before going into the hair salon next door.
This place, titled ‘Sharon’s Salon’, was run by a very trendy young hairstylist who introduced herself as Sharon Sprinkle. Something about this lady struck me as extremely desirable, and I found myself consumed with a desire to be exactly like her. Luckily, it was not overpowering, but I did end up getting a new hairstyle from her.
While she was working on my hair (which turned out wonderful), I decided to ask her how she became a hairstylist. She told me that she had chosen this career some time ago, simply because she felt like it. That reason seemed so brilliant to me!
She also mentioned her father, a nomadic man who has held dozens of different jobs throughout his working life. Apparently, her success in the hair industry inspired him to become a barber. “Unfortunately his place didn’t last very long,” she said. “One of his customers spread the word that he was a ‘hair destroyer’, and he didn’t get enough business to stay open.”
Once Sharon announced that she had found my style, I took a peek at myself in the mirror. Somehow, by some mysterious method, she had created perfect waves! I paid her generously and delightedly continued my shopping. I wonder… how will Typhon and his friends like my new look?
Well, that’s it. If you have any suggestions for Alecia’s future activities, post them in the comments section!
