What was the word she was looking for? Annoyed? Upset?

Horrified? Yes, that was it!

What had she been thinking? Why did she let herself get talked into this harebrained idea?! It was all that Trisha’s fault! Smart, suave, cool Trisha who had all the answers.

Never in a million years had she anticipated this.

Sunita almost sobbed as she saw what had been done to her lovely locks. They were all gone and had given way to a ridiculous cut that was neither stylish nor suitable to her face!

Never again would she let that Trisha suggest a hairdresser!


Welcome to The Moving Quill!

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I’ve taken up the theme of

An Oxymoron rendered inย micro-fiction.

Each day’s titleย will have one half of the oxymoron while the second half will be revealed towards the end of the post.

Follow me as I unravel each tale in exactly 100 words.

  1. I got rid of my beautiful locks too many years ago ๐Ÿ˜€

    I still remember the look on everyone’s face when I arrived with short hair at school. People actually asked me to never cut my hair again, and to let it grow the way it was. But did I listen? Never! ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. Oh dear… I would have had a heart attack and probably would land in jail too ๐Ÿ˜† that’s why I cut my own hair… To prevent jail time. Loved your narration.

  3. Oh gosh! I have such horror stories of hairdressers who ruined my hair! I was lucky to find one who understands exactly how to work with my hair – that’s a blessing, to be sure!

  4. God!! I would be more than horrified, annoyed and upset, if that were to happen to me. Hair stylists are too important to be changed or interfered with. My hair stylist is some 20 kms away from my home, but I wouldnt change him despite the distance and a million suggestions of nearby salons.

  5. The pain of a bad haircut – been there done that. I think this oxymoron is an eye opener for some of us – never realised it until now. Good one Shailaja.

  6. How interesting — an oxymoron we use so frequently and yet, I didn’t realise that. Nice story as well…we’ve all had those disasters where we promise never to listen to someone! ๐Ÿ˜›
