Mommy: Does my hair smell?
Me: No, you’re fine. [I’ve been married long enough to know the rules.]
Mommy: Are you sure?
…[a half an hour later at breakfast]
Cookie: Mommy, did you take a shower last night?
Mommy: No, I was too tired.
Cookie: Your hair stinks. Go take a shower after breakfast.
Mommy: But you told me…
Me: Making breakfast must have messed up your hair.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
