the Toni perm

Sue and Kay with their Toni perms
Did you ever have your hair like this?  Sue and Kay recently voiced their opinion on these Toni perms, practically rolling in the floor laughing with the memories:

Sue: Daddy came to our rescue on those Toni perms that Mother used to do.

Kay: Yes he did!

Sue: Those home perms. Oh lord! I have never been so humiliated in all my life.

Kay: Medieval torture!

Sue: I can remember our school pictures, she would always do it the week before we had the school pictures.

Kay: Boing!

Sue: We looked like little Buckwheat.

Kay: It looked like those little bubble wrap things that you pop, but none of them had been popped.

Sue: It just looked like you had stuck your fingers in the electric socket and it had just sizzled it.

Kay: And it stunk!

Sue: Oh yes the smell!

Kay: It was gross.

Sue: Daddy told Mother, "Don't ever give those girls those home perms anymore!"

Oh my, Susan! Thank heavens for a Daddy looking out for you.

I know some of those school pictures are always good for a laugh in our family too. I don't know that mine were ever quite as horrid as a few of my sisters. Now that is a laughing till you wet yourself moment.
