Pooch receives a text of the title of this post and calls me:
P - what do you mean you've got jam in your hair?
Me - (pause) I'm not sure what else I can add. I've got jam in my hair.
P - how did you get jam in your hair?
Me - I was eating a jam doughnut and the wind changed.
Getting jam in your hair is not something that they tend to deal with in those survival type books. Chewing gum, possibly, but jam tends to be given a miss. To be honest I don't expect there are many situations when a 30 year old, sophisticated lady about town would end up with jam in her hair but nonetheless it happened to me. And it is very difficult. What are your options? Wiping with a tissue, which really just rubs it in. Sucking might get it out. But sucking your hair to get jam out doesn't sit well with the 'sophisticated lady' bit of the description above. In the end I just had to do my best and wait until I got home. But ultimately it was very inconvenient.
Note to self - do not eat jam doughnuts outside when it is windy.
