Look at those curls

I have always wanted to have curly hair.

When I was a young child I dutifully wrapped my thin, straight hair up in curlers.  I used heated curlers while eating breakfast, soft curlers that stayed in my hair overnight, hairspray to keep the curl in; only to have my adorable ringlets fall flat before I could reach the car door.

In high school, I begged my mom for a perm or a wave so I could have finally have my curly hair, only to have the hairdresser tell me that my hair was thin to hold a perm.

So I have accepted that I will always have my straight, thin, often frizzy hair.

but ... look what made an apperance at our house the other day ...
