Recipe: Lemon Olive Fuzz

I always liked how those food blogs look, especially the pictures. I wanted to post something like that and here is my chance to shine. To give credit where credit is due, this recipe is invented and perfected by my wife.



Ingredients:
  • 4 tables spoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 table spoon olive oil

Procedure:
  • Mix the olive oil in the lime juice until it becomes sticky and slimy
  • Apply the concoction thoroughly to your husband’s hair
  • Note: Applying may be tricky because you may face some resistance. Blackmailing in some way works well
  • Make sure the mix is evenly applied to the hair and, if possible, to ears and eyes
  • Let the hair dry completely, while the slime drips on his t-shirt. Natural drying is preferred unless he mutters too many obscenities, in which case you can advise him to go stand in the sun.
  • There is an easy test to find out when the hair is dry. When you touch it, it should feel like uncooked Top Ramen (or Maggie)
  • Wash the hair. If needed, remove the grease with Pinesol
  • Don’t forget to compliment him on how silky the hair looks and feels – who knows, for a moment, he might actually forget that nobody in the world would notice a married guy’s hair, even if he dyed it orange.

(OK. OK. I know I exceeded my quota of hair posts)

  • LOL!! You forgot to mention that if your wife is mad at you your head becomes “tabla”:-) so check for any sign before risking your head in her hand & mersey;-)Otherwise you will have a flat head product left...:-)

    I mean, taking care of our own is a pain in itself, she does it for you? :O

  • Ah you got me! I first read the title as "lemon olive fizz" and was expecting a beverage. When I saw the ingredients for your new drink, I thought, YUCK! But I actually kept reading, because who knows? If you said it was good, then it's good.

    I like the way you mind your wife.

  • It wonders me that even after all of this, you still have enough hair left for more experiments.

    By Blogger Nrcima, at Tue Oct 24, 08:22:00 AM 2006  

  • Still LOL!!!!
    For a moment, I thought you'd converted to a foodie - was kinda skeptical after reading the ingredients...
    It was only when I skimmed the 'Top Ramen' part, that your satire hit me.
    Love it :)

  • err...i thought lemon juice and sun combo turns hair grey! Old wives tale then? Can you check with your wife if the magic potion works on colored hair??? :-)

    Ha ha. No it didn't. The shine I am talking about is my natural glow ;)

    shruti:
    I hope you won't get a chance :) If you do get a chance, buy Pantene conditioner ;)

    mommyof2:
    LOL@tabla. Yes, there is that danger. But you see, I handed over my head the day I got married. No backing out now :)

    Isha Reddy:
    Welcome to the blog. Thank you so much for the compliments! Glad you enjoyed it.

    rads:
    I can be loving and caring and take care of her hair, if in return me and my hair are left alone.

    gnightgirl:
    "If you said it was good, then it's good."
    Wow, never before was such great trust put in me :)

    Did you mean to say the vice-versa?

    Nrcima:
    "you still have enough hair left for more experiments."
    **shudders** I am not looking forward to any more experiments! :) My hair had enough excitement in the recent past.

  • freespirit:
    ".i thought lemon juice and sun combo turns hair grey!"
    I don't think I will have enough hair left for it to turn gray

    "if the magic potion works on colored hair??? :-)"
    I don't think so. But I have a dream. I have a dream that one day all hair is treated equally, colored or not.

    Sweta Mohanty:
    "cute blog!"
    Hmm... a new chapter in the life of this blog... nobody ever called it cute :)

    Is "cute" euphemism for useless?

    pria:
    Thank you :) If I can make people laugh, my purpose is served.

    Shreemoyee:
    "The combination is good for the skin too actually."
    DON'T EVER mention that to my wife

    my life...:
    "i thought that it was a bowl of vegetable chinese "
    I don't think it tastes any worse than the vegetable soup at the Chinese place near my house :)

    "does it really makes yr hair shine?"
    No, I am still not sure if it is really supposed to work or if my wife is just having fun with me

    Foodie's Hope:
    "Hey, stay away from my foodie zone!"
    I am not going enter the domain ruled by the likes of you, Lera and Mythili!

    Shilpa:

    No kidding, really? And you don't even have a wife? You actually voluntarily put yourself through it? Why? Why, man, why!?

    "ask ur wife to try this mixture the next time....LOL!!"
    I will definitely ask her to try it on herself :) I will even suggest to her to throw in a little vanilla for the fragrance

    I think the hair has to be more than a few inches long to tell the difference :) My wife's hair does gain a little volume when she uses this concoction.
