An Amusing Tale of Hair & Comics
From My Morning Commute

I know some folks hate those short train or bus or car rides that most of us have to make in order to get to work each day, but not me. I couldn't enjoy my morning and evening-time commutes more.

My car might be gorgeous and true bliss out on the open road, but in terms of the daily commute it's not something I want to just wear out driving in rush hour traffic, so even on those occasions that it's running perfectly I prefer to take the train. The people-watching is fun, but even better, I tend to get a lot of funnybook reading done on those trips. And it's public transportation, amusing stories and public transportation go hand-in-hand!

This morning as I was boarding the belly of the beast and walking to an open seat a young boy began bouncing in his chair waving his finger at me in that excitable way that ten year old boys do.

"Mom! Mom! Ohmygod, lookit! Lookit the hair! The hair!"

Trying not to laugh, I sat down in the seat behind this youngster and his mom. He quickly spun around to get a better look... and to get to the bottom of the mystery of the hair.

"Oh, hi! How do you get your hair to look like that?" He asked with wide eyes and as fast as humanly possible. "I want... I want mine to look just like that!"

I cracked a grin and replied "Well, you need to read a lot of comic books."

"COOL!" he shouted, "Mom, didja hear that? Didja?! I have to read comic books, I HAVE TO READ COMIC BOOKS!"
