Entry: cowlick (n.)

In context: "The only thing that ever shows she's tired is that her hair gets a sort of huge white cowlick, like a rolling ocean comber of hair.."

Definition: A lock or curl of hair which looks as if it had been licked by a cow

Other: To be honest, I was hoping for some sort of interesting history or etymology.  So it goes.
