At one of my old corporate jobs, we wimmins got to talking about hair and I mentioned the super-aggressive cowlick lurking in my bangs. One of my employees then asked me what a cowlick was and why it was called that. I said, “It’s when your hair sticks up like a cow licked ya!” She looked a little dubious. If only this series of photos of a stray cat with its cow friend had existed then to illustrate my point.
Check out that tongue — it’s obvious why that could cause a problem with one’s ‘do. View the rest of the photos by Yochi Aranov Zwilling here to see how the cat looks after a thorough cow tonguing.
Here’s how I look if I leave my hair totally untamed.
I don’t know why this conversation has stuck with me for 10 years. The brain works in mysterious ways.
