Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Looking for Elvis?

Posted by episode81 on October 14, 2010


Thank you very much.


I do not consider myself an Elvis fan.  But that might be changing.

Just recently, Elvis has popped up in a number of unexpected places: as background music in a French restaurant and as a music request from Edison Pena, one of the trapped (now free, yey!) Chilean miners.

Let’s just take a moment to admire the name of Edison Pena.  I wonder if he has a brother called Tesla?

Anywho, I digress …

My most recent encounter with Elvis came from an unexpected source.  I colored my hair, ably assisted by a friend who did the back.  As I sat waiting for the required 25 minutes, I turned on the live CNN feed to watch the miners’ rescue.  With minutes left before I needed to rinse the color off my hair, another miner started on the journey to the surface.  I couldn’t drag myself away until he was free, so I left the color on for way longer than I should.  That was my first mistake.

My second was in not being very neat.  I had slapped on the color to make sure that I didn’t miss any close to my hairline.  You can see where this is going.

When I finally emerged from the shower after washing out the color, who was looking back in the mirror?  None other than Elvis.

I now have rather impressive sideburns that will take several days to fade.

Thank you very much.  I’ll be here all week.


UPDATE: Soon after I posted this yesterday, I attended a meeting at a business in San Jose.  Guess who was standing outside the breakroom?  Yep.  He is following me.
