White Lies and Black Lice

When I was 6 I got lice from some gross hotel my family stayed in on the way to Disneyland. My mom spent a lot of time picking out all the little guys with a special yellow comb. When I asked her what was going on she told me, “It’s not lice but it is like lice.”

When I was 20 I was mentioning to someone how I had never had lice but I had had something like lice. My mom said, “Oh no Jordan, you had lice. I just told you that so you wouldn’t tell all your friends you had lice.” My mom was trying to preserve my social life.

    Good job Donna – my mom didn’t hold back when I got lice – yes more than once! I guess I was a dirty little girl.

    I remember when I would complain about having lice my mom telling me to ask God when I died to have no lice in heaven. Will do – thanks!

    The first time I used the lice shampoo and washed Jordan’s hair in our big yellow tub, I counted 250 little critters in the water. Your hair was long but I didn’t want to cut it. I felt morally obligated to tell the school so Mrs. Jolley took the couch slip cover home from her classroom and washed it. The nasty little motel was in Bakersfield and you slept on the floor and ended up with your head on the dirty shag rug.
