Learning Stuff

Something Miss Priss has learned in the past 24 hours: If you get gum in your hair, you get to have an impromptu haircut. Of course, she didn't tear up as five inches of wavy brown locks fell to the floor of the hair salon, noooo, I did. She couldn't have been more eager to show off her new look this morning. (Now she looks even more like an eight year old version of Ashley Judd.)

Something I learned in the past 24 hours: If you're watering your cactus, and it falls, DON'T catch it.

I don't know about gum in the hair, but you're right about a falling cactus. Best to jump back. Been there.

For future reference, Key:

Most any oil (baby oil, vegetable oil etc.) will remove gum from hair. Takes a little time, but sure beats cutting it off!!!

Good job on Chapter Two, BTW!!!

Not too up on the gum in the hair thing. I usually pull out the buck knife and cut it out. 'Neck tradition. Fallin' cactus.. watch out Key, pricks are everywhere. And what Wayne said... sweet job on Chapter Two.

I know it sounds crazy but I have been in the hair business for a long time. Try peanut butter.

Becky's right about the peanut butter. It does work. And good lord about the cactus Key...ouchers!

48 hours later, and I'm STILL not used to this haircut, but it is cute, and it is what she wanted. Nothing to spare at this point though, if the gum thing happens again, she'll be covered in peanut butter fo sho!

(Oh, and my cactus spine injuries have healed, thankfully. That was truly a bitch, like poison-tipped splinters, they were!)
