The dreaded notice comes home as regularly as the monthly school newsletter: "There has been a case of lice in your child’s classroom." For certain parents — say, those with hair-coveting girls — the letter provokes a Munchian scream. Phone calls to fellow parents — once friends, now suspects — verge on interrogations: "Why was Violet out yesterday? Was she sick?" "Is it true that Isabella got a buzz cut?"
Who can be trusted? Nobody. Not even you, as you notice your daughter clawing at her scalp like a rabid dog. Remember how you were ostracized the last time word got out about the colony of blood-sipping fly babies on her head that spread to her entire karate class? No one must know the truth!
