A Change: A Parable

A very short parable I wrote for an undergraduate class.

Faith was a beautiful woman with very long blonde hair. One day she decides to get her hair cut. She doesn’t know what she wants to do with it but knows she wants something different. She goes into the salon and tells her stylist, Judgment, to “just do something different and fun.” The stylist turns her away from the mirror, “This is going to be a surprise. I know you’ll just love it!”

            Over the next hour, Judgment had changed the color of Faith’s hair and started the cut. When Faith was finally turned toward the mirror, what she saw shocked her. Her hair was now a very dark brown color and cut very short and trendy.

            “Do you like it?” Judgment asked.

            “Well, it wasn’t what I wanted”

The End
