Teaser Tuesday-Oct. 25

Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week my teaser is from The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls:
Mom had read somewhere that mayonnaise was good for our hair, and the morning the photographer was coming to school, she slathered a few spoonfuls on mine.  She didn't realize you were supposed to wash out the mayonnaise, and in the picture that year I was peering out from under one stiff shingle of hair.

Oh My goodness. I would have been mortified. I did hear a story from a neighbour about her son pouring much of a bottle of baby oil on his hair hours before he was in a wedding. They could not wash it out. he had to go with the slicked down look.
