In our family we enjoy quoting movies. The movie Megamind has several quotes we like, but I have really put to use the idea that when your hair is a mess "your hair is exciting!" Since then I haven't had a "bad hair day" only days when my hair is "exciting". Most often my hair matches this description in the morning, and I usually go show whoever is up so they can start their day with a chuckle. After that, the exciting hair ends up under a hat until it can behave with a little more decorum!
