A couple of weeks ago Charlene told me a funny little story. In the morning she was curling her hair with her curling iron and burned her ear. The burn was so bad it started bleeding so she put a band aid on her ear, wrapping it around the top outside edge. This didn't surprise me as she has burned her ear many times with her curling iron. One day I expect to come home to a little pile of ashes in front of her vanity mirror.
She tells herself she must remember to remove the band aid before she goes to run some errands because her ear looked like some kind of bad make up job for a B horror film.
Of course she forgets and goes to the grocery, the vegetable market, and a few other places. When she gets home she's horrified when she catches sight of her little elf ear in the mirror. I laughed so hard it hurt.
