The Boswell hair: A family tradition

(Continued)

Just for fun I have named Lucy, Ethel, Ricky and Fred.I have hairs that only grow at particular times like: PMS Hair, Lack of Sleep Hair, Pregnant Hair, and On My Way to a Special Event Hair.I have Lucky Hair that I let grow whenever I’m going to play the lottery, or when my teenage daughter is driving the car.I also have Luke-Warm Christian Hair because it only shows up every other Sunday morning, and Embarrassing Hair because it is only noticeable when I’m trying to make a good impression.I’ve been with hubby for so long that I figure I probably inherited a few hairs from his side of the family, too. They include Truitt Hair, #MarriedHair and Cuckoo Hair.

Along that vein, I also have In-law Hair, because it shows up unannounced whenever the house is a wreck.

But even though each and every one is special in its own way, nothing compares to the Boswell hair. It is the tie that binds our family together. Literally.

Truitt is an author, speaker and mother of five. Find her on Facebook (Ginger Truitt-Author) and Twitter (@GingerTruitt), or contact her at ginger@gingertruitt.com.
