‘… just me-time; to do my nails and straighten my hair, you know …’
The inanity of it all. The chiming, bright voice with all its innocence penetrated my concentration. Demurely, with eyes lowered, she flicked up the end of her hair and paused. A small laugh; echoed by her companion. The only thing I could think to suggest was she could add, scratching, pick fleas, cropping her toenails, flake scabs, shave.
I missed the lesson when we were told that ‘me-time’ was all about personal grooming and maintenance? But then, there are many lessons I have yet to learn.
