I think my picture establishes that I have long hair. But in case it doesn't: I have seriously long hair. It goes all the way down my back. And it's thick, and curly, so I generally give the impression of:
a) Cousin It (on a frizzy day)
b) a walking shrub
c) Medusa (on a windy day)
I don't go through a day without someone somewhere saying something about it, which is usually a very very very nice thing, but is very occasionally an uncomfortable or even scary thing. My hair, for good or ill, is part (a small part, but a definite part) of what defines me. (Before you get all freaked out that I need therapy, don't worry - I don't live through my hair. It's just a bigger deal in my life than in most other people's. But it's still only hair.)
So I just about screamed with excitement when I saw this trailer for Disney's new movie, Tangled, based on the story of Rapunzel.
There's a moment in the movie when some big guy sees Rapunzel walk past and he grabs hold of a lock of her hair and as it runs through his hands, he mutters, "Her hair's long."
That totally happens. To me. All the time. Strangers, whom I have never met, grab my hair and tell me that it is long. I like the sentiment, but the stranger-touching-hair thing? A little bit icky.
And when Flynn replies, "Yeah, she's growing it out,"? Best. Comeback. Ever.
So, have you seen it yet? What did you think? How did it compare to other Disney movies that you've seen? Am I the only one who can relate to the whole hair thing?
