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"
