Liam: Do ladies get their hair cut as often as I do?
Me: Depends on whether they have short hair or not, I guess.
Liam: What about long hair?
Me: Nah, because with long hair you can tuck it up, like I do. My hair is currently in its standard knot of a ponytail looped back on itself. Tres fashionable.
Liam: You should grow your hair really, really long.
Me: My hair gets sort of scraggly if it gets long.
Liam, excited: No, but if you grew it really long, like Katniss, that would be wonderful. And then you could wear some exquisite clothes.
I look down at my cotton t-shirt and skirt, which is starting to pill because it’s been washed so frequently. Exquisite?
Liam: Yes, exquisite. And then you’d be one of those pretty moms.
Everyone’s a critic.
