It's probably just my clamshell bra

I was in a public restroom at the mall, running a comb through my hair, when a mom with two little girls came in. One kid goggled at me for a moment and then blurted, "Mommy, she has RED HAIR!"

True enough: Feria "Cinnamon", $9.99 a box at Bartell's, dear heart. I chuckled.

After a pause, the kid elaborated: "She looks like ARIEL!"

Well, now I know what to say in my personal ad under "Celebrity you resemble most."

In the memorable words of Pauline Kael (and what was SHE doing reviewing "The Little Mermaid," anyway?): a "teenaged tootsie in a flirty seashell bra."

Imagine the woman who your little friend fingers as looking like Usrula the Sea Witch, haha.
