Today will be the third time in a row I wear pigtails in public. Why? Because they're LUCKY pigtails, just like the lucky KU shirt and lucky yoga pants I've been wearing throughout the NCAA tournament. Now, I realize a gray-haired woman of my age should probably not be sporting the hairdo of my adolescence but, at this point, I'm afraid to change it up. (And, you thought Stevie Wonder was very superstitious.)
At least, my pigtails aren't quite as horrifying as Donna Douglas', seen above in - let's hope - her old Elly May get-up.
