Hair or Teeth


I don’t know which was worse, missing teeth or
frizzed curly hair. I remember those Tonette Perms
back in the 50’s. I remember sitting what seemed like
hours getting my hair rolled and covered with that stinky,
cold pink stuff and then wads of cotton to keep it out of my
eyes. After an eternity, the curlers came down. I had curl
that looked like a rats nest. Little Orphan Annie would have
been proud. I wanted to crawl in a hole. My “social” life was
over, but I “had” my Toinette Paper dolls to fill my time. A
minor trade off! Boys were so lucky! They didnt have to get
"beautiful" like we girls did. I can tell, Walt just tolerated his
picture taken with me.
