Fiona has had long hair for as long as she has had hair. But recently she decided that she wanted to break with the past and make a radical change. This weekend, she went to the hairdresser and got it cut short. (We accompanied her for moral support, and to take pictures of the momentous event.)
Fiona wants to donate the old hair to a charity that makes wigs for sick kids. Right now the two braids are sitting on our dining room table, and they look really strange. They’re very recognisably still Fiona’s hair — thick and fluffy — and it’s like there’s a piece of her head on display right next to the vase of flowers.
