Yesterday, on my way to work, I saw not one but two women with remarkably long hair. Like, past-their-butts long. They weren't together--one was on the R train, the other in the lobby--but the rarity of seeing of two adult women with Crystal-Gayle-esque hair within about 20 minutes united them in my mind foreverrrrrr.

As I've mentioned, I wore my hair super-long until fifth grade. What I didn't mention is that I grew it back out to my waist when I was a freshman in high school.

1994: The last known photo of me wearing a crop top. Also: who the hell wears a black belt with what I assure you were jean shorts? (That's my friend Elizabeth on the left, by the way. She looks pretty much exactly the same today.)

Although I've gone back and forth between short and long hair since then, my hair's never been THAT long again. It's not that I think I'm too old for super-long hair or that I can't get it to that length again--I actually can. But my hair just doesn't look and feel the way it did back when I wore ridiculous casual attire.

Maybe that's the trade off. Maybe I have to dress like a '90s nightmare to get my hair so healthy-looking again. (Probably not.)

ANYWAY, today's Quick Question: What's the longest your hair has ever been? How old were you?
