My hair was always thick and curly—curlier than my mom’s and sisters’ and tangled easily. Consequently, hair brushing was a cruel task I had to endure each morning. Untangling four little girls’ heads in the morning was a cruel task for my mother as well. Her solution was the pixie haircut, made popular by Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday and Mary Martin as Peter Pan. Every few months, Mom trooped us into Frank’s Barber Shop on the corner and the threatening curls and waves were cut off. My sisters had hair that would lay straight, so their bangs and edges were even but mine popped in various directions depending upon the humidity and wind direction. Everyone said my curly hair was a blessing, but my grandmother, whose curls I inherited, always shook her tangled head of hair and mouthed to me “not really”.
My theme for the 2022 AtoZ Blog Challenge is titled Grand Prompts To Ask Your Grands. Each day in April I will present a conversation starter/journal prompt to ask your parents, grandparents, aunts, older neighbors, co-workers, yourself…you get the idea. The questions are meant to forge connections between and within generations and inspire storytelling and journaling.
