“Thy knotted and combined locks to part,
And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porpentine.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Ghost, in Hamlet, act 1, sc. 5, l. 18-20. Hinting at horrors he will not describe to Hamlet; "porpentine" means porcupine.

SUBJECT: StellaDella’s hair
StellaDella has the worst static-y, fly-away hair these days. I actually used a dryer sheet on her hair this morning before she went to Sunday School. As I was taking the tree down she stood by the front window and her hair was sticking out all over the place. I guess we need to turn on the humidifier and to add hair conditioner to the shopping list.
