Be the Boy has moved to Summer Blogging hours. Details about this can be found here. Here’s another story in 100 words or less.
July 4, 1997
She stayed outside when it rained on the Fourth of July until her hair was soaked so I followed her inside to lend a hand. I was busy with the hair dryer and didn’t hear the knocking. It was someone’s girlfriend at the door, specifically my girlfriend, who informed me that drying another girl’s hair during parties was taboo. For years I thought that my then girlfriend overreacted but when I told this story to my wife yesterday she told me I was way out of line. Lesson learned.
