Eliza’s hair gets in the way too often, so Mando has a servant tie it back and braid it; threatening to chop it all off if Eliza tries to undo it at night.
(Me: *To Eliza* Hey, Cousin It, get a hair cut!”)
“Having long hair means I have a barrier against Shark Boy. It’s my protective frill of keratin! NEVER!”
*Turns to Mando* “Hey, just thought you aught to know: the only thing that can destroy keratin, is fire” 😉
The captain contemplates this, smirking at Eliza’s apprehension.
“That is an enticing idea! However….burning the scalp off of her is a tad extreme. But…” he picks up some scissors. “That doesn’t mean she should continue to go around looking like a wild beast! Maybe it’s all that hair that’s interfering with her higher brain function. How much to take off I wonder? Earlobe length? Or higher?”
“Higher brain function? She HAS that?!” 😛 (Sorry, there’s alot of Eliza bashing going on here :P)
