My daughter came downstairs this morning with a rather interesting hair-do.
"Why is there a pencil sticking out of your head?" I asked.
"Mom!" she huffed. "Get with the program. Everyone wears pencils in their hair."
I looked at Bubba. "Do you wear pencils in your hair?"
He shook his head. "No, Mama. That's stupid."
I looked at my husband. "Do you wear pencils in your hair?"
"Does it look like I wear pencils in my hair?'
I looked outside at the girl riding her scooter around and around and around. She didn't have a pencil in her hair, either.
I looked at my daughter. "Are you sure you got your facts straight, because I don't see anyone wearing pencils in their hair."
"Mom, every girl in my class wears pencils or sticks in her hair."
Okay, then. I guess it's the new tween fashion trend. Maybe I should put my hair in a bun and shove a pencil through it. Then I'll be cool.
