wouldn't you know it? Half-way through my major work session, the doggie flea comb starts separating and falling apart. You know what happens when the doggie flea comb falls apart? It rips up your hair and makes it all knotty.....and when you're gettin knotty, you really DON'T want to be getting knotty loops in your locks. You want uniform backcombing. But, it was like 1:30 in the morning and my wee ones were sleeping peacefully upstairs, so a run to the store, I could not make. "Press on, Mama", I said to myself. "Persevere!" I will get this side of my head done tonight.....and so I continued.
