"What are you doing? Quit that." Big Kid said, as I gathered the top half of his hair in my hands.

"Your hair is long enough that you could rock a man bun. Look."

"Ugh. No. Stop that."

"Man buns are all the rage right now," I joked.

"For hobos, circus clowns, and the Jackson Five."

Mr. Ashley and I laughed. "...Do you even know what the Jackson Five is?"


"It's an old time boy band with Michael Jackson and his brothers when they were little kids."

"So I was right. Dysfunctional."
