Every time I have a hair cut my stylist asks me, "And how has your hair been?"
How does one answer that? I racked my brains, and here are some of the things I might have said:
"It was worn to a frizzle from all the traveling but bounced back after a week in the office."
"It's been dull and dispirited since I stopped the vodka rinses."
"It's just got engaged to a Rastafarian."
But in fact I only mumbled "Oh, you know, much the same..." as I mentally rehearsed my answer to the next question: "Have you got any holidays planned?"
