Tipsy: You know you wanna brush your hair with a fork

The Little Mermaid Attraction

Last weekend in Santa Barbara, I ended up in a bit of a pickle when I realized I had no hairbrush, no comb, and no blow dryer upon exiting the shower.

At this time, I was forced to rely on the teacher of my most basic instincts of human survival: Disney.

Namely, the Little Mermaid, Ariel herself.

No one ever knew how much of a genius Ariel was when she discovered what she referred to as a “Dinglehopper.”

This past weekend, I too discovered a local, plastic, discarded Dinglehopper, and put it to use, completing my transformation into an admittedly scruffier but hardly less masculine Draco Malfoy.

Needless to say, I looked good.

So, if you can’t find a comb, hairbrush or blow dryer and you need a comb in a pinch, a fork isn’t the worst tool in the world. Just make sure to wash it afterwards if your fiance is still hoping to consume the Thai leftovers.
