all_strange_wonders: An illustration of Nita from the Young Wizards story "Uptown Local". (Default)
Today I got a hairbrush stuck in my hair. This is a new experience for me--in the past, my hair beat the brush every time. I have broken brushes with my hair. Today, however, I sat at the dining room table while my father examined the round brush dangling from my head for a few moments before going to find some needlenose pliers. It is possible that this is the greatest testament to how much my father--not a very demonstrative (or patient) man--loves me, because for the next hour and fifteen minutes, he carefully and gently unwound my tangled hair, pulling out all but fifteen bristles from the brush in the process with the pliers.

Someday soon, this will be funny. Hell, it's already funny. It was sort of funny while it was happening. But this is also one of those things I'll always remember about my dad--he didn't sigh or shake his head or yell, he just went and got a pair of pliers and got to work.
