Reality and Remembering #atozchallenge

Hello and welcome back to my A-to-Z Challenge for today.  Yes I am was actually caught up.  Yester the letter was "R" obviously but there is so many things you can talk about when it comes to this letter.  Today I am choosing two things that is in my face all the time.

Reality - Oh where to begin with this  I will make this one a light subject.

Yesterday I went to get my haircut at #FantasticSams which I go to all the time for my hair cut.  I told the lady what I wanted and she said no problem.  What was that you wonder?  Hmmm, ok, I told her that I wanted to have feathered hair in layers to do blow backs like Farrah Fawcett.   However, what I wanted is not what I got.
This is what I envisioned

So instead today I went to #Greatclips and had the lady there do my hair.  Even though it wasn't like the above picture like I wanted it to be it was still a great cut for me.  
This is the style but not color I got
So my reality obviously isn't that my hair is going to look exactly like either of these but her Reality was way off.  My hair was only cut on one side, it looked no different really then it did when I walked in.  I smiled, paid her and left.  She won't be cutting my hair ever again.  

Remembering - I remember a time when all I had to do was get up, wash my hair and put a blow dryer to it and it would lay just like Farrah's did.  Sadly it obviously doesn't do that any longer.  Oh the days that were good, where did you go?

I remember being alot of great things from when I was younger and some things that weren't so great that I wished I didn't remember as well.  You know the funny things about remembering is that you can turn it on and turn it off when you want.  If you are sad, angry, annoyed, or just plan moody you can remember something happy and then you will become happy.  If you are happy, you can remember something sad and become sad.

Remembering is a funny thing from time to time.  The best part about remembering is that you never really lose those that you have physically lost them in life.  No matter where we are at or what we are doing, remembering can make all the difference in how your day is and what your day is going to be like.

The bad thing about remember, when you can't remember what you walked into a room for, where your keys are at, or my favorite, where are my glasses when they are clearly on my head.  Yes, I loose all of these things and then some.  My husband laughs and tells me that all things are in my purse unless I can't remember where I put my purse.

So what about you, have you had any differences in reality compared to someone else?  When remembering do you have a hard time with the everyday things but not the long term memories?

Better yet, what is the most embarrassing memory you remember and can share?  Share with me and we can all brighten each others day.
