While brushing my hair this evening before going to bed, I came across something shiny and sticky attached to my hair. In plain sight, it shone in the vanity light like the Star of Bethlehem. What on earth? Carefully reaching up to pull it off, I quickly realized it's one of those pesky orange stickers that I peel off my zinc air hearing aid batteries.
I've written about these little buggers before in this blog. They must be peeled away from the battery to activate them. They manage to make their way into the most innocuous places. They can be quite a nuisance.
Upon freeing my tresses of this sticky annoyance, I think to myself... I changed that battery this morning -- most certainly a full 16 hours ago! Did no one notice it? Not even one of my uber-observant first graders who look at me all day long? Or did everyone politely ignore it and giggle to themselves about seeing yet another orange sticker in their silly teacher's hair?
Damn you, little orange hearing aid battery sticker.
