Hair! The Post

The Missus spent the day doing end-of-the-year chores in her classroom, meaning Yours Truly was o.c. getting the Llama-ettes bathed, shampooed, dressed and off to church this morning.

Can somebody please, please explain long hair to me? I wash it, comb it out, dry it, brush it, attempt to part it down the middle and put it in some kind of pony-tail, but no matter what I do, the gels invariably wind up looking like Helen Hunt after getting chased down by the F-5 tornado. (Not that I mind Helen Hunt in such a state of dishabille, but that's a different story....)

Sometimes, I wished I'd gone through a hippy stage. The experience might have proved useful.

Long hair is a creature unto itself. Helpful hint: if you're going for a single ponytail in the back, don't part it.

See? This is what I'm talking about.

My mother side stepped the entire issue by insisting that I have a pixie cut (ahhh, it's sooo cute) until age 13 when I grew taller and heavier than her...
Another tip; use hair bands. Surely there must be some hanging around in a bathroom drawer. Slip the band over the ettes head and pull down to the neck, pull hair through and brush straight back. Slip hair band up and behind ears, presto!
