I must be a closet ballet dancer.
Unfortunately I don't remember doing any kind of dancing, so maybe I'm actually an amnesiatic closet ballerina.
This issue seems to occur in the morning, after I've had a cup of coffee and then taken a shower, but the stimulating effects of either have apparently not yet kicked in. After I shower, like most people I then dry my hair. It's at that point that I believe my inner ballerina likes to break out of its closet.
How else can you explain how the cord to my hair-dryer -- the hair-dryer that only I use -- gets so darn knotted and twisted? I must be doing some kind of pirouettes while drying my hair.
This really baffles me. It's not like the cord of my dryer is one of those curly electric cables similar to those on phones. I used to have a hair dryer like that and it would get knotted if you gave the thing a hard glance. My current hair dryer has a straight cord and my process for using the appliance is very simple.
I remove the dryer from beneath the bathroom sink. I plug it in. I dry my hair. I put it back under the sink.
And don't think how I dry my hair is to blame. I know some people might contort their bodies to get an excessive amount of hair fluffiness, but not me. I tend to brush my hair forward drying all the way, then backward doing the same. I then "style" it. That's it.
But somehow, somewhere, in that clean, 4-step process the electric cord gets knotted and if I don't deal with it in a timely fashion, additional knots form, shortening the cord so much that eventually I'm drying my hair approximately 5-inches from the outlet.
Maybe our house has an infestation of leprechauns or elves who between stealing socks out of the dryer and misplacing things we own, work on their knot-making skills using my hair dryer cord.
I suppose that's just as plausible as me being an amnesiatic closet ballet dancer.
