Did I ever tell you that I once gave Bud a wig that I made myself? He never wore it, but I thought it turned out nice. I was a dental assistant when he passed the bar exam. My boss, Dr. Taub, let me use plaster to form a wig stand & I wrapped yarn around dental cotton rolls to make the curls for a miniature (about 5" high) barrister's wig. He said he loved it but I don't think he ever even tried it on!!
More about Dr. Taub's office:
Since many kids are scared of people wearing medical whites, we wore street clothes. During the summer we could wear shorts. Once, another dentist came over to pick up Dr. Taub to go out to lunch. He questioned my boss on our attire. I heard Dr. Taub tell him, “When most dentists are hiring a new assistant, they usually ask where she went to school. I say, ‘Lemme see your legs, baby!’” (This was obviously before the days of political correctness.)
