Crusts and Crush

When I was a kid I was picky. It was silly really.

One day when I was a kid my Grandmother Elaine told me to eat all of my crusts for "it will make your hair curly."

Huh? She told me that is what they used to tell her when she was a child.

I didn't want curly hair. I do eat crust now though. It is my favorite part of the bread. Yum.

I think my Grandmother Elaine has a crush on Tom Weber.

"Steve how is your friend from the radio doing?"

"Who?"

"Your friend from the radio."

"Tom Weber?"

"Yes, Tom Weber."

"Good. I think. He seems alright."

Then my Mother asks her Mother, "Tom Weber? How do you know Tom Weber?"

"He comes to lunch sometimes. I hope he comes next time. He has such beautiful hair."

And she motions her hand above her head "Such locks!"

Oh, gosh, who doesn't have a crush on Tom Weber?! I do!

My mom used to say the same thing about crusts and my hair gets curlier the older I get. Maybe there's something to it.

Could be some truth to the saying -- parents started letting me gum on the crusts as a toddler (and refused to eat any more than the crusts after my teeth came in, although now will eat the whole pizza if given the chance).

Still sporting Shirley Temple hair-do...

I love all of your gramma stories! I meant to post about your visit to the tea house. There was a fabulous place in Warrensburg where Bill and I *dated* (I know, antiquated term!) called the TeaHaus. It boasted 40 to 100(I think it was really about 40, but felt like 100 when you were reading the menu!) teas (all with their remedial qualities) and served lite lunch and dinner fare. They also had a slew of board games on a bookshelf and didn't mind if you sat around all day with your friends. The walls were papered with knicknacks to keep your eyes busy for days on end and upstairs was a resale shop for all the vintage junkies in town. Ahhh...those were the good ol' days....
