This is the longest my hair has been in probably 40 years. Straight hair was always my lot and after trying permanents which make my hair look like Brillo pads, I just gave up and went with no curls. Now, on its own, it is starting to "wave." L. always says, just shave it and get a wig. The one time in the 1970's when I bought a wig, he didn't notice since I chose one that was graying just like my hair. He was shocked when I reached up after supper and took it off with one hand. The look on his face would have been perfect for a "gotcha" moment.
