"Whoa! Green hair?!" Grace asked incredulously.
Adam nodded. "Yeah, I, uh... You like it?"
"How? Why?" was all she could utter.
"It's was... kind of a spontaneous thing. My flight was delayed three hours and I met this woman from Chicago, and we talked, and before I knew it she told me I could use a change and dragged me to the airport hairdresser."
"You meet a random woman at the airport who tells you to dye your hair green, and you dye your hair green?"
Adam cleared his throat, a little embarrassed. "Okay, when you say it like that, it sounds kinda weird."
"Kinda weird? Rove, this," she pointed at his head, "is impulsive. You don't do impulsive."
He raised his eyebrows. "Oh no?"
"Yeah, okay, maybe I don't do impulsive. But at that moment it seemed like a cool idea. So..." he looked a little nervous, "does it look, like, really horrible or something?"
Grace cracked a smile. "Actually, it's kinda cute. Maybe you could do a little Mohawk thing. Get an eyebrow piercing."
"Okay, I'm not that impulsive."
"Does it wash out?"
"I don't know. Eventually, I guess. Why?"
"I think your dad will get another heart attack when he sees you like this."
He rubbed his eyebrow. "Maybe I should dig out one of my old beanies again."
