My mom has been telling me to look up Crystal Gale for years, and I finally did it. Oh my goodness. I WISH my hair was that long.
And that's kind of always been an aspiration of mine.
When I was little, I would read this book called Coal Mine Peaches
And IN this book, the main character's grandfather is telling her about when he met her grandmother. She had hair long enough she could sit on it.
For some reason, the thought of having hair so long you could sit on it was absolutely enchanting to me. It still is, weirdly enough.
And then, y'know, there's Rapunzel's hair...
Yeah. Perspective blown. My hair really isn't that long.
