Trixie’s hair is getting a little out of control. We’ve never cut it and the darn stuff just keeps on growing. Normally I wouldn’t care, but it’s gotten to the point that, I swear, I think she’s running into stuff because she can’t see.
The quick fix is the barrette. It doesn’t take long to master hair barretting. I learned it in a few short weeks. There’s always the fear that you’re going to slice right into the scalp with that thin sliver of metal, but it rarely happens. Now I can barrette her in seconds, with little to no blood loss.
Trixie’s take on barretting is negative bordering on curious. In the beginning, there was no chance it was going to stay in her hair. 15 seconds was a record. Now she’s used to it and it might stay in for hours. However, she always eventually discovers the barrette. Her expression, as she slowly pulls it from her hair and hands the alien artifact to me, is one of perplexed horror. It’s the same look you or I would have upon discovering a Matrix-like socket buried in our skull.
So we’re thinking about making everybody’s life simpler by whipping out the scissors. Nothing too serious — just the bangs. What do you guys think? Help choose the future of Trixie’s hair in our latest poll
