Glameness Part 2: FFTIHAD
Lydia: “My head smells.”
Lydia: “My head smells like horror.”
Lydia: “What color is it? Is the dye working?”
Cap’n: “Wet and shiny and goopy. Is that a color?”
Lydia: “No. And my head smells like an infection.”
Cap’n: “No. Your head smells like that part of I-95 just south of Philadelphia near the Naval Yard.”
Lydia: “Yes!” (Considers the smell of the Jersey Turnpike and the aroma of her home state, just a stone's throw away)
Cap’n: “The smell that says… I don’t really want to stop for a cheese steak after all.”
Lydia: (sadly) “Yes.”
PS: The results of the permanent hair dying experiment were meh at best. Example? When I saw Kate for the first time afterwards I waited for to say something. She didn’t. But she did raise one eyebrow and sniff. And that’s why I am GLAME.
UPDATE UPDATE!! We actually got invited back -- Woot! Which means Lydia is frantically rifling through her closet and Kate is -- c'mon, this isn't even a mystery. Kate is buying new shoes. We'll be on Thursday morning, 11AM. We'll post it as soon as the online version goes up. xoxo K&L
