Parents Say the Darndest Things

A snippet of the unbelievable conversation I heard at the hair salon this morning:

Hair Dresser: "Are your kids good looking? I mean of course you think so, but what do other people say?"

Awkward silence...

Gray-haired Client: "Not really. My son was probably the best looking but he's not now, he's fat."

Me thinking: "What...the...hell?!"


  1. Well, I don't know which is worse, the question or the answer. It's maybe a slice of life you don't want to see very often.

  2. That's just odd...and a little funny in its blunt honesty. My guess is that Grey-haired Client doesn't think much of her own looks either.
