Life Imitating Art

There we were, 6:30am, Little Em laying across the bed with her head hanging down in front of me so I could work on the back braids of an elaborate hair-do for her gymnastics meet that day and it hit me: all over the Valley there were girls doing the exact same thing, getting their hair styled in elaborate hair-dos in preparation for competiton. And it occurred to me that it was just like the Hunger Games when Katniss sat for her mother to braid her hair for the Reaping.

Then the funnier part is that I told that to one of the moms later that day about the parallel and she said that her daughter was actually wearing a Hunger Games hair style because her daughter had found it online under “cute up dos.”
