Garage style

We recently joined a local health club. I often go early in the morning to get my workout done before I log on for work. Often when I shower, I don't have time to blow dry my hair immediately. I take it as a win if I can log on to work clean and dressed. At some point I find a few minutes to blow dry my hair. Usually I just grab the blow dryer out of my gym bag.


One day Daddy walked by to find me with my blow dryer plugged into the garage light outlet. I had my head in the garage with the blow dryer in my hand. He made a funny face at the sight. When I was done, I said, "You know, we don't have an electrical outlet in the bathroom down here."


It turns out that in the nearly twenty years that we lived in this house, we never realized that we did not have an electrical outlet in the first floor bathroom. Until I started needing to blow dry my hair quickly, and between conference calls, I didn't have a reason to look for an electrical outlet in the first floor bathroom.


At this point no one who lives in our house stares when I blow dry my hair in the garage. It's still strange, but it is still the quickest option.
