The Outsiders. Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1983. Warner Bros. Pictures.

TIME:  7:51 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  MonkeyBoy and his hair

MB’s class read “The Outsiders” in his Language Arts class this last quarter.  They had the option of dressing up like a “Greaser” or a “Soc” today.  MB chose to be a “Greaser”  It took a ton of pomade to style his hair and I bet it’s going to take a ton of shampoo to wash it out tonight.
