“My mother had just gotten a new handheld vacuum, and my older sister convinced me to let her try it out ON MY HEAD. So she put it right on top of the center of my head, and turned it on. Next thing I knew, we were pulling chunks of my hair out of the vacuum, and trying to figure out how to hide my new bald spot from my mom.”
