This morning Ricki brushed her hair (more or less), and then came to me with several elastic bands. Please comb my hair into “pigtails”, she pleaded.
-But Ricki, you know that most girls consider “pigtails” babyish....
-But that’s what I want. Only “pigtails”
I suddenly understood:
-Who in your class wears pigtails?
-Ruchama (her best friend)
Figures. Just like any other teenager.....
