Chapter 10, Page 12 Sacrifices for fashion

It doesn't make sense to me, either.

Could someone please explain why it's necessary to freeze our ears off in the name of beauty? It's especially cruel right after a hair cut when one's hair is still slightly damp from the washing and all the weird spray stuff they use.

And people wonder why I have an attitude.

This is why I ignore people when they ask me "Why don't you just shave your head?" Uh, because I live someplace that it's darn cold half the year, and where I'm likely to wind up with a sunburned scalp the other half. I'll wear my hair short enough so that I can comb with a towel, but no shorter, thank-you.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

That's one of the reasons we have knit hairbands, a couple inches wide, for winter use.

@Dan: No kidding. Though there are days when my hair's misbehaving when a clean shave would be tempting. (And cornering the market in wigs.)

@Dad: Would've been nice if they'd let me wear the hat long enough to get me a hairband.

Think you kinda spoiled me, what with the three updates in three days last week. But I'm a big boy. I'll learn to adapt. :)

Good grief. Reminds me of my sisters.
