Of Mice and Men AND of Hair Rebonding

I went for hair rebonding.

My two girls initially agreed to go with me because of the prospects of getting their nails done (talk about bribery!!)...Eventually, when they couldn’t wait any longer, they bid me farewell...and told me, they’ll see me at the

But ,girls, who would look after me? While rebonding?!

Anyway, despite my plea, they left me...6 hours waiting for their mom doesn’t fit their schedule... ( And they’re just 8 and 13 years old.)

While waiting for time to pass by, I read my baby’s book Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. (One and half times over, btw).

The book was published in 1937. This book was one of the author’s more popular books along with The Pearl, Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden and others.  The author also won the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize for literature for some of his works.

Ages ago, I did a book report on this.

But today, I kinda needed to google some of the words. (Looking it up the dictionary seemed old fashioned, don’t you think?!) I needed to find meanings of “buck barley”, “looloo” and “googoo”...while being a mom...I kinda just get poopoo, peepee and weewee   a lot.

Of Mice and Men is a tragic story .  But i’d recommend this for my kids' book report and your kids too. (It’s  short!!)
