I have a pre-teen boy and over the last couple of years he’s had an aversion to soap and water. This is a typical conversation between us.
Me: When is the last time you took a shower?
Me(smh): Oh, good…..we still have one more Sunday in the month, so were good!
Conversation between us over New Year’s holiday.
Me: If you are not going to take an active interest in your hygiene….you are not letting your afro grow out.
Pre-T: I am taking care of it.
Me: Ummmm…ya, no you are not. I can literally envision those Mucinex guys setting up camp on your scalp, sitting on their couch playing Call of Cootie on their PS3!
Conversation this morning….after Pre-Teen has taken a shower for three days in a row.
