Student 1:" My hair is tall"
Could you guys copmlete this dialouge between these 2 students for me. I'd say " go get it cut", or "get a hair cut" but my professor doesnt' like those ones. Do you guys have any other substitution for what I said?
Please guys respond to me as soon as possible.
"Tall" is not an adjective normally used to describe hair, as far as I know. If student 1 said, "My hair is LONG" then "Get a haircut" is great. But I just can't imagine anyone saying "My hair is tall."
Student 1: " My hair is long"
Student 2: " Then..."
I think " Get a hair cut" did not work with my teacher. you don't have any other ones?
Student 1: "My hair is tall."
Student 2: "Then, you'd better get yourself a dictionary."
Student 1: "No really, my hair is tall."
Student 2: "Good heavens! You're right. It's standing up."
Student 1: "What should I do?"
Student 2: "Forget the barber. What you need is an exorcist."
If your teacher accepts "My hair is tall", but not what Jacob said that is "Get a haircut", then change the teacher.
What Jim wrote is quite witty, hi,hi.
I still don't get it. You can't have tall hair. Can you?
No, but you can have big hair.
Only in east Texas. East Texas Big Hair looks best on middle-aged blonde women with plastic-framed cat-woman glasses.
Don King has tall hair. An absurdly coiffed ("over-the-top"?) pompadour can be tall. Punk spikes can be tall. The Afro is coming back in style; is it tall, or big?
To me, tall only applies to hair that sticks up vertically. I agree: a reasonable sentence would be "My hair is long." And a reasonable answer would be "Then get a haircut." Maybe the teacher didn't like "a hair cut" as separate words, because it could be misinterpreted as meaning getting one single hair cut?
Big haired people exist outside of Texas ... inexplicable but true. Big hair is more horrid than tall hair. It may look "best on middle-aged blonde women with plastic-framed cat-woman glasses" but it never looks good.
What Tex writes about tall hair would make sense. I'd have to call Don King's hair tall.
I don't think of afros as tall and they're definitely a different beastie to big hair, maybe they're large, sizeable or even volumous.
do you know the meaning of the words "please" and "thanks"?
As a wild guess, General Ricardo would know the meaning of at least one of these words, considering s/he used 'please' in her/his second post.
Incidentally, 'tall' is a weird adjective to use.
Yeah, I know the meaning of "please" and "thanx". But my laptop was down for a while and I couldn't check the replies.
What's the word "wild" mean in your sentence "as a wild guess"?
Wild: meaning 'out there' or 'slightly crazy' or 'mad'.
It makes more sense if you think of it as slightly sarcastic.
