Response to What Kind Of Person Are You?:
I hate this kind of “test”. It’s not a test. It’s a lame survey. It does not tell you anything about yourself. Boo.
Response to How I Learned To Stop Erasing Myself:
I live in Turkey. I am from the US. My user name here is different from my real name. I have been here 30 years and never in all that time has anyone ever pronounced my name correctly. But I don’t get angry about it. It is not “negating.” Who I am is so much more important that what people call me. But I must say that now that I have become a senior member of the staff where I work, I do enjoy people making an effort to get it right. But at Starbucks? Never.
Our daughter caught them three times. The only thing that we found worked was olive oil. Dump it on, make sure everything is saturated, wrap scalp in plastic bag, have child keep it on for a few hours. Wash with shampoo. Check for nits. Repeat if necessary. The medicine approach is to poison the nits. The olive oil clogs their air vents and they suffocate to death. Olive oil is great for the hair, so you get a deep condition as well.
