"Oh for Pete's sake, it just won't go down, will it?"We're talking, of course, about my hair. I'm growing out a crewcut, and it's currently in the awkward in-between stage that's been dubbed "Chia Pet" (which I blogged about in the Spring when I was in the same state.)
"No, not really."
"You're sure it won't?!?" A mix of frustration and accusation, "I don't think you're even trying to make it go down."
Laughing, "I'm trying."
Resignedly, "Do I need to help you with this?"
Fortunately there's a happy ending to this story. With the right technique, we've discovered that it actually will go down. :-)
