Now this a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside-down…
Okay, that’s actually the Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s story. I’ve been foiled again!
Do you know what I wouldn’t give to be able to say that just one time in my life for real? Like, pound my fist on the desk in my underground lair and shout, “I’ve been foiled again!” with possum-henchmen scattering from the room?
Someone should really offer some kind of formal villain training courses (besides the current Yale and Harvard business programs). I would absolutely sign up for that. One time I did get to yell, “Because they don’t get to win – THAT’S why!” in the conference room at work, and it may have been my greatest moment in life.
So! I had lice as a kid. More than once. As the judge tells Nicolas Cage in Raising Arizona, “A ree-peat ohhh-fender.”
This was mostly because I was a filthy little heathen, as were my friends, classmates, pets, and both of my Cabbage Patch Kids if we’re being honest, here.
I wrote a li’l flash humor piece about it and it’s on Cosmonauts Avenue this month. I know! Do they have the best name or what? You can read it here: Licehead Spa Day.
And then spend the rest of the day not scratching at your head. It’s not like you have lice or anything. Unless you do…
Shout out to Finesse Shampoo. You were the wind beneath my lice wings. VO5, on the other hand, can 100% go sit and spin.
Speaking of hair…thanks, as always, for reading and commenting and letting me watch your hair flowing slowly in the breeze.
Now try saying “flowing slowly” ten times fast.
