This came in an email today from my friend, Nancy Massa. It’s a shared email, so I have no idea where it originated. Since I sometimes try to write about writing, this fills the bill…and maybe you’ll get a laugh or two. We need laughs these days.
There’s a rumor going around that old women shouldn’t have long hair. I’m taking issue with that idea. How else do you hide your old neck?
There’s so much an old woman can do with her long hair:
- Hide sagging breasts,
- Put it in a bun and carry a cane to entice Boy Scouts to help cross the street,
- Crochet a sweater out of the strands that fall out of her head and grace her black sweaters,
- Put it in pigtails and pretend she’s in her second childhood.
