Some baby connected to someone in the back room of my library came in for a visit. She was a fairly cute baby who laughed a lot, which was amusing and even a little contagious.  The subject of hair came up and some other library staff-related baby was shown in a picture via a phone. The pictured baby had some thick black hair, for a baby at least, and we were informed that in this baby's culture after a month they would shave his head.

As the relatively rare Jew at my job I felt obliged to tell everyone how we do it in my culture:

We just wait 50 years and it starts to go away by itself.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
