It’s a Saturday night. Mrs. Cohn Zohn  is resting, still recovering from hip replacement surgery. Grant went out to dinner and a movie with his girlfriend. And here I am.

So, I have something to say. I went to get my haircut at a fancy place recently and the hair-cutter, a nice lady, asked if I use product on my hair. Product is a new word to me. It sounds very L.A.

Product?

Do you use product?

Do you know how product got to be called product?

I didn’t use product but she sold me product and now, when I remember, I use product on my hair such as it is.

When I was a kid we used Brylcreem and before that Be-Neat. We called it hair cream or something like that. When did hair cream become product? Has the world progressed?
