I guess I'm wicked, but I plan to have a nice little arsenal of retorts. Sure, it might make me look like an ass hat, but then they can feel like an ass hat, too.
I used to have extremely short hair. Strangers were constantly commenting on it along the lines of, "Oh, don't you wish your hair were longer?" especially when I had to show my driver's license with an outdated picture of me with very long hair. One day, I finally snapped. A grocery clerk made the requisite comment, "Oh, but your long hair was soooooo pretty!" and I said, with a very downturned face, "Well, it takes awhile after chemo for hair to grow back." I know some would think I was tempting fate...but that look on that bitch's face was PRICELESS and 10+ years later, I'm still cancer-free and NOT sorry AT ALL that I said that!
Now, to come up with something JUST as good for the all-boy comments...mwahahahaha!
