My mom's sense of humor...

So I go visit my mom and she asks me, "Is it supposed to continue to rain?" As I open my mouth to answer, she looks intently at me and says, "Oh, never mind. Your hair is very frizzy and curlly. Yes, it's going to continue to rain." And I say, "Yes, it's supposed to continue to rain all week long."

It turns out that my hair is a rain predictor, and it's probably alot more accurate than the weather reports. Rain (moisture in the air) and curly hair just don't go together!!

Ayer mi mamá me preguntó, "Va seguir lloviendo?" Y justo cuando le iba a contestar, ella me mira intensamente y me dice lo siguiente, "No tienes por que contestar. Tu cabello esta muy 'engrifado' y esta por todas partes! Claro que va seguir lloviendo!" A lo que yo le contesté, "Si, se supone que va seguir lloviendo toda la semana."

Parece ser que mi cabello predice si habrá lluvia o no, y quizas sea mas preciso que los pronosticos climatólogicos que se dan. La lluvia (humedad en el ambiente) y el cabello "chino" (rizado, crespo, con bucles) no van juntos!!

so i take it that mom must not have curly hair so therefore cannot predict these things herself?

I think I read somewhere that straight hair looks tube-like under a microscope while curly hair is very flat. Maybe curly hair is more weather-sensitive because the individual strands have more surface area than strands of straight hair.

My hair is very coarse. It only goes one way, and it takes me only about 5 brush strokes to get my hair ready for work. How convenient! :)

Hilarious! My hair doesn't predict, but it reacts to the weather, for sure!
