After the haircut, the plan for Julia and me was to head to my parents' house to show them the new 'do and then go home. I called Mom and said we'd be stopping by with a surprise, and then Meredith walked outside with Julia and me as we headed for the car.
Joan, my sister's neighbor (who we'd chatted with about Locks of Love before Julia's haircut), was outside, and Julia bee-lined in her direction and was around the fence that divides my sister's and Joan's properties. Mere and I followed.
All of a sudden Julia came tearing back around the fence, wailing and crying and incoherent. She headed straight for me and I managed to make out "It's chasing me!"
