i've noticed that in the last day or two i've been scratching my head even more than usual. so after a dash to the shower for a Great Big Hair Wash, i lined up all of The Gang and did a head check. hmmmm, dragging a fine-toothed-comb through all of my and R14's curls is no partay.
clear. clear. clear. clear. clear. clear. infestation.
*freak me out*
i. hate. nits.
so there was a dash for the Olive Oil (cos i am *so* averse to putting agent orange in our hair) and The Nit Comb and we started The Hopper Count.
i lost it at twenty, three times more than the number of teeth that M5 needs filled...
while S10 kept making helpful comments like:
"i've got a whole *nest* in my hair..."
"did you know that dreadlocks is the worst thing for getting nits..."
"they found at least seventy-two species of nits in Bob Marley's hair when he died..."
