Spiky Hair

I took Ellie down to the river to run wild tonight while Elizabeth went to her weekly Mary Kay meeting. She was having such a fantastic time playing in the dirt, collecting sticks, gifting me rocks, and playing tag that I didn't notice how quickly it was getting late. I'm acclimated to the long northern summer nights and didn't expect dusk to come upon us at 8 among the thick cottonwoods in the flood plain. When it did, I put her on my shoulders and started hurrying back. While she was bouncing along up there, I felt her mussing my hair up into a pyramid. She began telling me that she was spiking my hair. When I asked her about it, she said something along the lines of, "Yeah, I'm making your hair look like Mary Kay hair." Awesome.
