Acting Out

As anyone who knows me personally will tell you, I am the epitome of a goody-two-shoes. I don’t even have to try, it’s just my natural tendency to run the other way when I see trouble, combined with this weird innate need to do the right thing by and please other people.

It seeps into every facet of my personality. I don’t drink or smoke, I try not to go overboard with make-up, I’m almost never late, I never got less than an A in school and I distinctly remember crying when my friend told me I’d said a swear word in Grade 3 (in actual fact I’d called someone a “mongrel” after watching 101 Dalmations, so still not very nice). I never fight with my friends- in fact I avoid confrontation at all costs and I dress conservatively. Just check my archives to see the full array of pastel colours, modest hem lengths and demure necklines.




Make no mistake, as hard as I try to do the right thing, I stuff up probably more than I get things right, but I’ll never stop trying because this is just the sort of person I am. Someone even asked me the other day if I was a Mormon, which made me laugh. I’m just a goody-two-shoes.

Now I know this is going to sound incredibly stupid, but whenever I put on my knee-high boots, I feel just a little bit rebellious. Sad but true. And honestly I think my Mum is probably very grateful that a bit of black does for me what pink hair and tattoos do for other people.




When Molly and I went to dinner last week I got right into dressing up. By the time I’d put on the boots, hoop earrings and a little bit of black leather, I was probably feeling the most rebellious that I’ve felt since I cut my hair to a pixie-crop when I was 19.

So there you have it. I’ll never be one to jump on the back of a motorbike, and don’t expect a nose piercing in this lifetime. This is how Heidi Landford takes a walk on the wild side. 😜
