    I feel it might be anti-climactic. But I do remember once when my hair was short, that I was in a show at Dad’s that shall not be named. I wore a jet black bobbed wig. A friend who shall not be named thought it was my real hair. This leads me to believe I am meant to be a hair chameleon.

    My family is from Termini Imeresi in Sicily. I haven’t been there, but it would mean the world to me to go meet the cousins who still live there.
