We took the boys to get haircuts today. My husband told the barber to keep it a bit short on the sides but longer on top. Before we could stop him, the barber had shaved off the side of our youngest son’s head. Challenge number one of the New Year – keep a smile on my face while telling my son how nice it looks (he’s thrilled, of course).
This reminds me of one of our friends who went to a barber shop in our hometown in Texas. He took a number and unfortunately when his turn came up, he got “Shaky.” Yes, the barber’s name was “Shaky.” He should’ve left then, but he didn’t. However, part of his ear left him during the visit. Just a nick, but still.
I wonder what the name of the barber was that we went to today. My guess – “The Scalper.”
