Today, I (yours truly Doriana) did something that a lot of people do every day. However, it prompted me to grab the phone and make a call. What's going on here?

Was the call necessary, as perhaps caused by an emergency? Or you just wanted to call, perhaps to tell someone about what you had done? Were you bragging? complaining? asking for information/help?

Was the call necessary, as perhaps caused by an emergency? Not necessary as in "there was an emergency", but I thought it had to be made. Or you just wanted to call, perhaps to tell someone about what you had done? no Were you bragging? no complaining? no asking for information/help? yope

Would your action prior to the call be considered part of many people's morning routine? mealtime routine? evening routine? bedtime routine?

Could the call have been made later that day? the following day? several days later?

Is it important what time of day this all occurred?

You say this is usually done in the bathroom. Did you do it in the bathroom?
Did the action involve another person?
Is it relevant who you made the call to? Family member? Boyfriend? Professor?

In doing <whatever>, did you noticed something unexpected? Strange? Frightful? Did you call the police? The ambulance? Some other government/state/city hall - provided service? If so, did they respond promptly? Relevant?

And a BLOOOOPER: "Today" was actually Friday, not Sunday. This is important because the call couldn't have been made on Sunday.

Was it now long enough for something that you wanted to do with it? Having it curled? Straightened? Cut into a particular shape? Did you call the hairdresser to make an appointment? To have your hair styled? Cut? Dyed?

Or was it now too long? Eg you realised your fringe was long enough to tuck behind your ears, so you called your hairdresser because you wanted it cut shorter again?

********SPOIELR********

The other day, I decided to try if I could get my hair into a pony tail. I'm keeping my hair pretty short at the moment and I didn't think I would succeed, so I was surprised I could actually do it.

I took this as a sign that my hair is growing too long, so I immediately called my hair dresser to make an appointment and have it cut.


Thanks for playing, folks!

Good one. When I kept my hair short, I used to cut it whenever I could see any of it without a mirror.
