Here's a little convo we had just recently. Please overlook the empty boxes and dead plants in the background. It's not that I'm against cleaning up my front porch, it's just that I didn't do it BEFORE I started clicking away.
So...Butterbean has a little bit of an issue with her hair. And she came to me, her very loving and very wise Mimi.
Me: Yes my little love?
Butterbean: Um, well, um could you maybe help me out with something?
Me: Of course I can, my angel. What is it?
Butterbean: Oh, well...it's my hair I mean...
Me: Uh-huh. I see. Well...have you thought about putting a little hair clip in it?
Butterbean: What's a hairclip?
Me: Well, I think I have one here (digging in pocket) um, yes, I do. Here ya go kid.
