In which David first refers to his hair

I often tell people "I'm having a bad hair life." Now is not the time to go into why, but you should know that I have a bushy, ill-tempered ponytail.

Early this morning I was walking back from Starbucks (I won't bother to explain why). I passed a man on the street. He spoke one word to me; "Banderas" he said.

I stopped. "Excuse me, I don't understand." I thought he had spoken in another language (possibly Armenian - no time to explain that either).

He said "Your hair makes you look like the movie star Antonio Banderas." (Yeah, right.) But I thanked him.

Usually when I get mistaken for someone famous, it's for Penn Gillette - but now is not the time . . .
