|Hairpin Catcher Quilt Block Pattern Information|
Yesterday at school, one of my third grade boys asked me if I was having a personal Crazy Hair Day! (Once or twice a year, our student council sponsors a Crazy Hair Day just for fun.) I asked him if my hair looked crazy. "Your hair is sticking out all over the place!" he replied. I had been outside for parking lot duty before school began, but STILL! If you truly want an honest opinion about your hair, just ask a child. They will be completely honest with you! I stopped at the grocery store after school to look for something to help prevent static electricity from making my hair go crazy!
Bad Hair Day
I can't do a thing with my hair-do.
I've tried but it's simply no use.
I can't make it stay where I put it today
with styling gel, hair spray or mousse.
No bobby pin, brush or bandana,
can get my hair under control.
I've tried every comb, every clip in my home,
but still I resemble a troll.
I've tried using forks in frustration.
I've tried using pokers and picks.
I've tried using straps; I've tried headbands and caps.
I've even tried shoestrings and sticks.
Regardless of how I attack it,
with rolling pins, wrenches or rakes,
it's simply no use, I'm the Gorgon Medusa;
my hair is a bundle of snakes.
