Mary Hair

Marilee has a morning hair/makeup ritual where she hits her bangs with a curling iron so as to keep that part of her hair out of the way while she puts on her makeup. It's quite efficient.

It wasn't until we both saw There's Something About Mary that I started referring to it as "Mary Hair". If you've seen the movie, you'll get a great visual.

Last year, I went along for the ride when she went to Las Vegas for a convention, for work. We stayed at Caesar's Palace, and were riding down in the elevator for the first day of said conference. I turned to her, quite seriously, and looked her in the eye, and said "Mary Hair!". Her hand flew to her forehead, and then to my arm.

She didn't think it was funny at the time, but I howled.

Now it's a joke between the two of us. Some day, though, it'll be like the boy who cried wolf. Can't wait.
