Roseanne Rosannadanna!!! I had forgotten about that one!!!
Here's my current favorite way to explain to people what my hair *really* looks like (without all the goop and conditioner and oil). I ask them to imagine that Kramer (from Seinfeld) and Roseanne Rosannadanna got married and had a child, and then that child got her finger stuck in an electric socket.
They of course don't believe me, think I'm joking, and then I pull out the picture. Yowza!
I love that I can joke about it now. If only I could zoom back in time and tell that poor soul I was back then that it would all turn out okay....
