    I have found my hook ticked into the top knot in my hair many times. I have stuck it there while answering the phone or having my hands full. One day I noticed it there while passing by a mirror. Unfortunately I had just been to the supermarket and had wandered around with two colourful metal hooks sticking out like helicopter blades. Thanks husband! He said he thought I knew that they were there?
