Crystal and Jasmine


Crystal: So, like, there’s this woman, right? And she comes in to get her hair cut, and she wearing this sweater that’s, like, a man’s or something …

Jasmine: Oh my God! Into your place?

Crystal: Right? And so I start asking her the usual questions, like do you have kids … or have you always lived in town … and like, what are your upcoming plans …

Jasmine: Yeah, yeah …

Crystal: And she’s, like, fifty or something, and she’s wearing absolutely zero makeup, and I was expecting her to say somethin’ like, well I’m going Christmas shopping for the grandkids … you know …

Jasmine: Uh huh …

Crystal: And then she’s like, “Oh, I’m going to Japan in a couple of days,” and I’m like, what?

Jasmine: No. Way.

Crystal: I know, right? It was all I could do not to blurt it out! Like, totally seriously, this woman doesn’t look like she has two cents to rub together, and she’s going to Japan and, get this: you haven’t even heard the best part …

Jasmine: What? What?

Crystal: She told me … Get this. I asked her why she’s going, and she told me she’s going to Tokyo JUST to SEE a CONCERT

Jasmine: OH. MY. GOD. You have got to be kidding.

Crystal: I’m dead serious. Can you believe it?

Jasmine: No way.

Crystal: I know …


(Written three years ago and based on a true story – at least judging by the look on my hairdresser’s face.)
