Do we remember the 'Colonial House' episodes with that irritating woman
who wanted to wear her hair down long because it 'symbolized her
femininity' or some claptrap like that. She knew she would be wearing a
costume when she signed on with the show. But every time they showed her
working in the kitchen I held my breath, half expecting to see her go
up in flames- hair loose, hanging over the fire, in her eyes, etc. I
wonder how many of us yelled at the tv- "Cover your hair, idiot!"
