Elaine went to the beauty shop this afternoon and got a permanent after spending the summer with out. She has always had a certain amount of curl in her hair, but it was cut so short a couple months ago that there was very little curl left in it. She came home in much better humor and fixed a good supper so that alone made it all worthwhile. I don't think she will ever try to let it go natural again. As an interested "Observer", it seems that ladies are inclined to stay with the hair style that was popular when they were young. Whereas us men are resigned to accepting the inevitable loss of hair even though we may lower the part and have a bit of combover, ie "The Donald".
