This I believe that blonde moments are what help build character and shape personalities. Anyone can have a stupid moment; whether they trip down the stairs or parse forget their address, only a true blonde can have a blond moment. A blonde moment can occur at any time to any blonde, sometimes they are not planed and sometimes they are. These moments can range from a miniature fault or accident, or to what I like to call a MEGA EXTREME MOMENT, and the average moments fall in-between. Along with many other people, I for one have experienced all of these blonde moments. Just the other day, I walked all around school with my shirt on backwards and forgot to wash the spa facial gel off my face, which made my face look like I had fallen off my bike and landed on my face. However, I have also experienced a mega extreme moments.
This I believe that, mega extreme blonde moments are not stupid moments, but are the essence of a creative art. These moments let a blonde person explore their natural creativity and skills. They separate the normal goof ups from the abnormal, imaginative moments. For example one day Haley Watkins and I decide to take a beautiful bike ride around the island and have lunch. It was all going good until Haley got distracted by her cell phone and swerved out in to the middle if the busy round a bout. My first reaction was to follow her into the middle of traffic, and then stand in the center of the round a bout and try to dash back across the road back to her. Two more examples of a mega blonde moments, are when Haley and I were crossing the road with a cookies and cream milkshakes, and she dropped her shake but ran back out in traffic to get it. The gross thing is she still ate it because she could not tell the difference between the crunchy cookies and the gravel. The biggest extreme moment of all is when Haley and I tried to out bike a bad thunder storm. As everyone can guess, it did not work out so well. The thunder storm turned into a tornado! Most normal people would stay covered in a near by ditch or building, but no Haley and I decided to put our innovative minds to the test. We decided that the only safe lace was Haley’s house which was three miles away from the village. Yes, this probably was a dangerous decision, but you can’t say that it was not creative.
This I believe that I can look back on my exciting blonde adventures and laugh. Others can not experience a true blonde moment and that is why they make up blonde jokes. An imaginative blonde moment just does not happen on purpose, in my case it is the blonde’s lack of awareness and sense of creativity. I feel that these blonde moments have allowed me to bond with my friends, laugh at myself and all the exciting times that I have been through.
