"What's A Towel Head?"

Massachusetts state representative Cheryl Coakley-Rivera (Springfield) has gone on record as saying she did not know what a "towel head" was until her ears were scorched by the term only in 2004. Frankly, I find that hard to believe, especially in light of the 9/11 terrorist attacks of 2001.

1.] 'towel head':
A derogatory term most often referring to an Arab person of Middle Eastern descent, specifically from the Persian Gulf region, who chooses to wear a towel upon his head as a form of head gear. Hence the term "towel head."

- See also, 'towelhead' (Webster's New Millenniumâ„¢ Dictionary of English)

Me, about every six weeks,after going to CVS, deciding what color I should get to fix this mess, going home, putting on my husband's tee shirt, slapping on the rubber gloves, breathing in fumes from Lord who know's what it is, apply protective shower cap, followed by the wrapped towel to hide my dirty little secret, and waiting 30 minutes in the bathtub to rinse and again, wrap with towel. No one is the wiser.....?
