Conversation #10: Please tell me a wig isn’t normal

So I have this weird hobby; I like to watch the home shopping channels, even though I have never bought anything and probably never will through that medium.  Although, they do tempt me.  One of my favorite hours to watch is the D*ooney & Bour*ke purse hour on QVC, because let’s face it, I have a purse addiction.

I don’t own any of said purses, but I just love oogling over them and seeing the new pretty colors and styles.  I really have no idea why this entertains me so, but cheap thrills I guess!

Anywho, one day while looking through the guide during my lunch break (I live close enough to go home – it is amazing and I recommend it), I saw in the little preview screen a girl I thought was modeling a wig.  Guess what?  I was right.  I had to check it out because I think wigs are a bit weird unless you have a good reason for wearing one.  Well, it was Ken Pa*ves with his Hair*do line with Jessica Simp*son, and they were advertising the long wig (picture is from Amazon):

Honestly, the picture just can’t explain the ridiculousness of the segment, but here is the part that really got me.  The QVC salesperson during this hour was trying to sell to the American public that wearing a different wig everyday, in a different color and style is NORMAL!  What?!  Please blog friends, tell me this isn’t so.  When did it become normal to wear a wig unless you needed to?  I mean, I work with a lot of men who don’t notice a new haircut, but they would most definitely notice me (with short, blond hair) if I walked in with long, flowing red locks one day and jet black the next.  That is NOT normal my friends!  I’m not alone on this, right?
