The History of the Ponytail

Awesome! I wear a ponytail more often than I'd like to admit.

I'd like to happily admit that I've only worn a pony to work TWICE within the last 3 weeks... GO ME! GO ME! GO ME! Hahahaha!!

Thank you for this. This makes me feel less guilty about my I-give-up pony tail.
