The Parable of the Louse

Several weeks ago I got an alarming letter and email from the school warning that there had been confirmed cases of lice.  Not worrying too much, I did a cursory look and thought everything was fine.

Well, a couple weeks have elapsed and I have gotten one more note from the school to which I promptly recycled.  We were good.

After a busy day of playing, trunk or treat, and a party, Lily proceeds to inform me that her head itches.  It's late, I'm tired, and my eyes are crossed, I don't see anything. 

The next day, she's getting in the shower and I stop her to do another check.  Sure enough...lice!

Did I heed the warnings?  Was I complacent?  Once I discovered the "wrong" did I make it "right"?

(Stay tuned to discover what happens next!)

  1. Gosh, what a lousy parable. I mean that in a good way.

    Excellent parable.
