Dandruff is just flakes of dry skin
Lice is good source of vitamin K, 31 other vitamins and nutrients and is a part of this complete breakfast.

In our culture there is a heavy stigma against finding hair in food, yet it is more an aesthetic consideration than a health issue.

Truth be told, most people eat a lot more hair at home than they will ever encounter in restaurants. Matter of fact, I have encountered far more hair in food I've been served in friends' homes than I ever have in restaurants.

It's not nearly as big a deal as a lot of folks make of it.

Like I said none of us knows what goes on behind the kitchen doors and like maggie said 'ignorance is bliss' ... if the young lady had merely said your order will be up shortly ... here, have a glass of ice tea while you wait ... all would have been well with me and the rack of ribs. Do not explain to my hubby the problem with the order in great detail. He was not commenting and she just kept on and on.

I am sorry but I can't join "The Dirty Girls Club." Maybe I can just be an honorary member. ROFL I have a very high tolerance to pain but unfortunately I have a very low gag tolerance and a very vivid imagination ... cooties, oily hair, hair follicle roots, chemical product build-up on hairs, dirty hair. I just can't flick something off and continue eating.

When I was working a group of us went out to lunch to a fast food restaurant. One ordered a vanilla milkshake with her sandwich. When she finished the milkshake she removed the lid and in the bottom was a long hair. I had to get to the bathroom quick, I threw up and it wasn't even my milkshake.

@redd1skng, I don't know when the hats, hairnets and gloves stopped ... I guess they are no long a Health Department Requirement. I do know straws still have to be paper wrapped. LOL

Clincally that is called taste aversion. You seem to been extra sensative to the power of your thoughts.

I get what you're saying. It's like me with needles (injections). I don't have to be *getting* a needle to freak out, oh no, it's enough to see someone on TV getting an injection, just seeing the needle itself on TV, thinking about a needle going into skin... ACK! I'm queasy now, just from talking about it.

But, yes, absolutely... be an honorary member. You can choose our hats and t-shirts.

Baseball caps ?!?! Are you out of your mind Lady ?

No, no, no, no Darling we need something which says "class" and what is more classy than wearing a large ice cream cone on your head or a jug of fruity ice tea ?!?

I mean come on , think of the benefits, you look good AND you can have a drink anytime you like ... And if someone stops you in the street to tell you about being "saved" or tries to shove a boring leaflet about something in your hands you can just whack them in the eye with the cone.

These precious and attractive pieces of headwear are beautiful, stylish AND practical. What mere baseball cap could claim to do all this I ask you ? Believe me I am French, I know about those things , being a mere American of course fashion is not your birthright I understand, so simply follow my lead...

For special occasions perhaps something even more classy and dressy like this :

Ahhh, how I love you, Moosey!

But, lest you forget, I'm not American... I'm Canadian. From Montreal. I know style. I also know parkas! Ha!

Yes, I shall follow your lead. Any of those hats are fine. The lighter the better, though, since I'm a little girl and don't want to topple over.

Dang I forgot ! Canadian !! Oh Dear, I must grovel now, being called American when you proudly fly the Maple Flag , that must smart. And you are right a fine Quebecoise would most certainly know style. All those long cold winter's night spent knitting by the hearth, trying to remember what summer looks like....

My most abject apologies. I am not worthy.

How about something like this :

or maybe a Royal Blue Fleur de Lys Motif ?
