White Hair Removal Service

I was sitting peacefully in the teacher’s room working on a new lesson, when all of a sudden a “flock” of my middle school girls barged in and swarmed their homeroom teacher. He didn’t even flinch as they surrounded him and began to wildly brush their fingers through his hair and giggle. They did this for about a full minute, when out of nowhere, he let out a tiny yelp. This just made them giggle even louder. They resumed their hair grooming service, and he let out another yelp, then another. I stood up to get a better look at what was going on, and was surprised to see the teary eyed homeroom teacher smiling and unmoving. One of the girls was the “seeker”, intensely studying his mane to locate white hairs. Another girl was the extractor, viciously trained to remove the hairs quickly and (relatively) painlessly. And the third girl seemed to just be there to watch the show and laugh. As one of the younger teachers, it only took the girls three or four minutes to clear his head of every single strand of white hair.

It seems that I’ve finally found the secret of Asian youthfulness…

  1. Is that for real? That's too funny! I guess they don't go by the old wive's tale that for every 1 white hair plucked out, 10 grow in!!! Your Dad would be in a LOT OF PAIN...and have not much hair left.

  2. Hahahhaha ya dad would definitely be in a lot of pain. And no, these kids don't care about old wives tales, they just want to make their teachers cry ...
