in at the Manor, I thought it would be apropos to talk about my
WT's hair. Like I've mentioned before, he has a great head of thick,
shiny, curly hair. I am very envious of this woolly mane. He just
doesn't know quite how to handle it and for some reason, it's never
of great importance to him. It's a good thing he has a sense of humor
about it, because it's a source of comedy around Willow Manor. I
have always fondly referred to this funny hair phenomenon as
"Dead President Head". Most mornings, he sports the James
Buchanan, especially in the winter months when the air is dry and
the top forms a little peak while the sides are flattened down.And then there is the William Henry Harrison, which most often
occurs after wearing a hat all day; any kind of hat, which he looks
great in, by the way--wool cap, baseball hat, straw hat, beret, fedora.
This can happen year round. When this happens, it's best to leave
the hat firmly in place.
But the one that makes me laugh the most, would have to be the
Millard Fillmore. This look evolves when he has been traveling
extensively and hasn't had the chance to get his hair cut. The more
he tries to comb it into a style, the more it looks like a very bad
toupee. Well, at least there won't be any Barack Obama head at the
Manor. Fortunately Mr. Obama keeps his hair neatly cropped to
prevent such silly trends.
