Dad Uses Vacuum Cleaner to Solve Ponytail Problem

I've never had long hair. So until the arrival of our first daughter (who had an eerily voluminous mane from the moment of birth), I've never had to deal with the inconvenience of it all.

I always figured a ponytail was an easy way to handle long hair. Well, let me tell you, doing one is harder than it looks!

When I try to put Alice's hair into a ponytail, it starts coming loose almost immediately. Then the rubber band falls out (usually in the hallway outside our apartment or the elevator). What gives?

Fortunately, this dad has figured out the perfect solution: a vacuum cleaner.

Unfortunately, we only have an upright vacuum.

This could get messy.
