As I was getting ready to go to bed last night, Kitty approached me and asked me to tie her hair up in braids so that it does not get stuck under her when she slept.
I pulled out my hairbrush, all ready to brush her hair, when I suddenly noticed that there's Blonde Hair on my hairbrush. Blonde Hair???!!! What the heck!!! I have dark, almost black hair and this hair was Blonde. Very Blonde. Even if they were my greys (which I doubt they could be - there was no way that this was my hair. And it certainly wasn't my daughter's hair either!)
So I turned to Kitty and asked if any of her friends had used my hairbrush when they were over. She said no. I asked if she'd played dress-up with our neighbour's kid and used my hairbrush in the process, she said no.
I untangled the Blonde hair from my hairbrush, inspected it very closely. Now, mind you, I've never ever felt Blonde hair ever. I have dark Asian hair and Asian hair is very different. It's thick and somewhat course. I examined the Blonde Hair and it was fine. Some even had the cuticle part stuck on the end.
Naturally, my worse fears were racing through my head. Who's been in my house? Who's been using my hairbrush? Who's been in my washroom? Were they using my make-up too? What about my perfume and were they going through my jewelry?
I was about to go and speak with Honey ........ when Kitty piped up and said, "Oh Mommy, I remember... I was brushing Barbie's hair about a week ago."
Barbie! Of course, Barbie! Who else would it be???!!! But, Barbie!
How would you have reacted if you were me?
