My dad got the same camera as me
August does not have football shoulders, his shirt is pushed up in back. But his hair is that goofy, sometimes even goofier. When it's at its most mussed and all sticky-uppy we call it "frowsty", a word borrowed from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It's used to describe the children after they slept poorly in a cave and emerge all blinky into the sunlight. They looked frowsty. Isn't that an amazing word? Frowsty!
Oh and "all sticky-uppy" is taken from a Doctor Who episode—an old coot, trying to describe David Tennant's hairstyle (last doctor before current Matt Smith), says "He's got one of those modern hairdos, you know, all sticky-uppy". Or something like that.
Can you tell what highly intellectual and refined media tastes I have?
