kate5kiwis: nit picking


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

nit picking

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..."

*scratches head*

oh, The Hat. Yes. see, S10 thinks he *got* the nits from trying on a million surf hats mid-week, spending his birthday money. well, he only bought *one* cap lol, but we're wondering if some of the Little B*ggers were hiding out inside a hat?? nasty thought.

thank you. yes we are feeling very sorry for ourselves... actually, one of my worst things is "Getting A Fright", like playing hide-and-seek and someone goes *BOO!* and Finding A Nit is just like that for me. hate it.

There is a giant model of a headlice at one of the Te Papa exhibits at the moment, shall I sneak a picture for you, so you can really get up close and personal? ;o).
Truly tea tree is da bomb for nits. Good just to chuck a few drops in your normal shampoo too as a preventative measure.
So sorry dearest. Ick. I'm scratchin' now. Hayxxx
