Yiddisher momma

Thirteen years of being married to Tevye has turned me into a Jewish mother. Star has thick, straight hair which gets everywhere if not tied back. Star does not like having it tied back and keeps taking out her hair elastics. Tevye was amused to hear me in a moment of exasperation informing her that I was fed up of her looking such a schlock (roughly translated in UK English as a "scruff") - and I didn't even notice that I was slipping into Yiddish. Oy vey!
