Bad hair day
You are having a bad hair day. You really take good care of your hair and you wash it frequently, because you like the smell of clean hair. I like to watch you blow dry your hair in the bath room. You take the time you need, to do your hair before you head of to school. And then it rains. Big time. And your mood changes instantly. You hate rain. You hate cold. You are so upset when the wind is messing up your hair and the rain ruins your hairdo. How many times have you told us, you will move to a warmer place? Morocco sounds nice to you, and so does Egypt or Turkey maybe. But certainly not Belgium. That's not where you intend to live when you're an adult. And if we ask you how you will make an income abroad, you say: I won't! I'll just lay in the sun and enjoy a drink near the pool. That would be nice, but that's just not gonna happen. Keep on dreaming sweetheart. You have some time to go until you are 18. And trust me: it hasn't stopped raining yet and you will certainly suffer some more bad hair days in the meantime.
