Smile When You Say That!

So, this morning The Boy was looking over my shoulder in the mirror, while I was fixing my hair preparatory to driving him to school, and he starts schlemming* for hair cut money.

During the course of discussion, he starts ruffling up his hair and rubbing his head with both hands.

Cut it out! I said, You'll get it on me!

I need Head and Shoulders, he says.

No, I said.

You need a chin.

*"schlemming" is a great Low German word that sort of means "whining" or "begging and nagging"
