I got a random compliment on my hair today.
As I was crossing Rideau, this Russian man (or at least a man with a Russian accent) turns around, looks me right in the eye, and asks, “How long does it take you to wash your hair?
“Uh, not long,” I reply.
“Me, it takes only three minutes. Because you see, I have only three hairs! Ha!”
We laugh, me a little uncomfortably, as I am not sure exactly what is going on.
He gets serious again. “But! Do you have to use conditioner, or something like that?”
“Oh, no. I only use conditioner like… twice a month, if I remember.”
“Wonderful! You are very lucky, to have hair like that!”
“Thanks,” I say, as he immediately turns his back on me, smiling broadly, and hustles off.
The strangest thing.
