Oh, but Bubba's Mom wanted it to be curly! And oh, how we tried and tried to achieve the perfect curls. I spent a lot of time in rag curlers.
We would roll it up wet, then I would usually sleep in these lovely things (SO comfy! NOT!). Most of our Christmas morning or Easter morning pictures are of me in curlers. If we were going somewhere special at night, we'd wet it and roll it in the morning and I'd wear them all day while my hair dried into cute little ringlets. Sometimes Bubba's Mom would roll it so tight I think my eyes were slanted.
This would last for a few hours tops, and then it would fall and be flat as a fritter again.
Until we discovered home perms.
Tune in next week for that excitement. You'll bust a gut.
