When I was in elementary school, I got gum in my hair. It was pretty funny watching the secretary debate with the other secretary (no nurse) on what to use. In the end they used peanut butter because someone recommended oil. However, when this was first suggested, one of the secretaries wanted to put GASOLINE in my hair! Funny memories...
