Storyboard Text

  • When you dyed your hair blue (or, at least ultramarinefor the clipped sides, with a crestof jet-black spikes on top) you were sent home from school
  • Because, as the headmistress put it, although dyed hair was not specifically forbidden, yours was, apart from anything else, not done in the school colours.
  • Tears in the kitchen, telephone-calls to school from your freedom-loving father: 'She's not a punk in her behavior; it's just a style.' (You wiped your eyes, also not in a school colour.)
  • 'She discussed it with me first -we checked the rules.' 'And anyway, Dad, it cost twenty-five dollars. Tell them it won't wash out -not even if I wanted to try.' 
  • It would have been unfair to mention your mother's death, but that shimmered behind the arguments. The school had nothing else against you; the teachers twittered and gave in.
  • Next day your black friend had hers done in grey, white and flaxen yellow -the school colors precisely-: an act of solidarity, a witty tease. The battle was already won.
