Obituary

Today we mourn the loss of a good friend, the straightener. Although the straightener lived a rather short life, its work was well known and of the highest quality. The cause of death is unknown as it was not dropped nor was it thrown in a fit of bad hair day rage, and death has been determined a suicide perhaps due to the increasing length of its owner's hair. The straightener passed away on Feb. 11, 2008 leaving behind a smell of burning rubber that permeated the entire apartment and caused the immediate evacuation of the residents.
Nausea and headaches followed.

The viewing will be held at the northeast dumpster until 8 am tomorrow morning when it shall be interred by the gray dump truck.

  1. How ironic that your straightener died! Brandon and I just had the conversation that when my Chi dies I fully expect to replace it with another one ($200 is worth it for straight hair). I mourn with you at this unpleasant time.

  2. I bought a straightner at Ulta for $30, then it died about 2 months later, I went to get another one because it did not even last the full year, but I had to get the same one as before. So, I got a new one, but it died like 6 months later. So, I returned that and paid a little more for a better one. I did not want to take my chances with the old brand.

  6. I remember the day my straightener died. My blow-drier died a few short months after. I still haven't replaced the straightener. You can't imagine how I...sniff... how I miss that little appliance.
