Common Sense or the Lack Thereof...

The official meaning of the words, common sense is as follows:
common sense:
sound practical judgment; "Common sense is not so common"; "he hasn't got the sense God gave little green apples"; "fortunately she had the good sense to run away".......

Hummmmm............This morning, I Really had a Good dose of what this means within my own existence. I'm blow drying my Grandaughters hair. I notice it's just slightly oily around the nape of the neck so, being the good Gamma that I am, I happen to mention it to her...lead balloon...She gets upset because she immediately assumes I meant that she did not wash her hair properly!...I over ride the initial outburst with trying to let her know that I meant No Such Thing and you can not continue to use a shampoo that is Designed to put oil into the hair and have your hair continue to be "bouncy" and squeaky clean after every shampoo...Every third or fourth week, you need to strip the hair with a cleansing shampoo; something with lemon or lime additives. HELLO!!! Common can Not force people to acquire it. They either Have "it", or they don't. AhHa!!! I can hear you now...."well honey, why are You blow drying a 13yr olds hair and putting Up with it"? Have to remember what I said previously....some either Have it....or they DON'T....LOL.....Have a fun day!!!
