In case I haven’t mentioned that I hate being on the road, I will state that here:
Being away from home sucks!
…unless, of course, your hormonal, teenage daughter picks that week to dye her hair purple–at the urging of her very cool mother–and it turns out a deep, dark, ugly red…and her mother has to scour the Internet for a cure, run out at 1am to get Prell shampoo, wash the offensive locks ten times, and still get up to go to work at 8am, leaving said daughter to face her peers at school (or risk her perfect attendance record). So, sometimes being on the road sucks less than at other times, I guess….
By the way, the hair has settled down to a very cute pinkish red with blonde highlights. She has received many compliments, and for those who don’t like it, she reserves unprintable scorn (something along the lines of “bite me” but cruder…) She gets 10 points for pluck…minus 5 for language…
