Day 3: Ask to touch someone's hair
Rejection #3 Ed asks to touch someone's extraordinary hair
Hair. Isn't it amazing? Ok not all hair. But don't you ever just have that urge when you see someone with extraordinary hair to just walk up to that person and ask to touch it? This is something I've been wanting to do but because it involves invading someone's personal space, I've always been reluctant to try it. Not today. Today I am going to get out there and put my senses to work.
As if it had been planned, I find myself walking behind a woman who has awesome hair. It's just that kind of hair that you imagine feels like a marshmellow, or a pillow. So soft and soothing. I am walking up to her and let her know that her hair is extraordinary and I would love to touch it. She says yes! Today is the day! I touch her hair and yes, as I expected, it feels super soft and I even tell her that it's like a pillow. Is that weird?
What did I learn?
Touch. It's a sensory experience. But touching hair does involve invading personal space a little. So it was awesome that she said yes and allowed me to stroke away. I do wonder what would have happened if I asked to touch a guy's hair. I don't think I would have had the same reaction.
