Do you know what does not discriminate between gay and straight? What doesn't care if you are transgender or questioning? That gives not a damn if you are bisexual, pansexual or asexual?

Lice.

Zachary came home with a head full of lice yesterday. Yes, the joys of tiny critters has finally come knocking at my door.

Everything is packed away in plastic bags. I'm washing the laundry in hot water not once, but twice. I shaved Zachary's hair- yes, we have clippers and a box of lice shampoo always on hand for just these kind of moments.

I'm itching like crazy. I may have to shave my own head.

Okay, that's only a butch lesbian fantasy I have, to take the clippers and let loose. I am itching like crazy, though.

I asked Zachary, who was oblivious, Didn't it itch?

Nah, he shrugged.

Equality for all, baby. Lice don't care.

And man, they can jump.

The other kind don't jump. Or so I've heard.

Paige had lice three times. I feel for you.

Bummer! I know it's no fun getting rid of them, so good luck!

Is this going to be remembered as one of those stories of what Zachary brought home from summer camp? He must be so embarassed, and if he isn't, take a picture of him with his new butch cut to blackmail him with later.

Stay Strong Supermom!
