Hair Eyes


You may be wondering...what are hair eyes? Allow me to explain. As I am driving my 3 yr old to the park this morning, the following conversation ensues:

Delta: "Do you have hair eyes?"

Me: "Hair eyes?"

Delta: "Yeah." (At this point I would normally correct her by asking her to say, "Yes, Ma'am"--it's a Southern thing--but I am curious about whether or not I have "hair eyes.")

Me: A pause....then an epiphany. "Do you mean eyes in the back of my head?"

Delta: "Yes."

Me: "Do you think I have hair eyes?"

Delta: A pause....then, "Yes."

So I guess I do. And if I ever write a book, it will be called Hair Eyes.

Don't if you ever write a book, say 'when' you write a book. That is my main goal in life, is to write a childrens book. I have the premise in my head and even the title, but putitng pen to paper...now that is giving me grief.

I know, I ,know, just get off my hiney and get it done. But I think I am scared.

And the minute we give birth, we all give birth we have hair eyes.

Oooo, write it, woman!

That pick and the title made me think of Watership Down, which I just finished reading.

My son likes to tell people that I have a map in my head because I now how to get to everywhere (the zoo, library, and grocery store are apparently "everywhere"). =)
