Weekend Assignment #62: We've all experienced regrettable hairstyles and haircuts. Relive a regrettable hair incident in your past for the amusement and edification of all.
Have I got a story for this one!
Terry, my son-out -law & my dear husband, both wear their hair long. My ever-confident daughter Mariah bought a set of clippers.we were all relaxing with a libation on the porch. Are you seeing a possible problem here?
Well, she decided to cut Terry's hair. Being the obedient boyfriend he is (everyone always does what Mariah says)they are soon shearing away. Something happens (accounts vary here & I was hiding my eyes)Anyway, Terry is cueball bald. After watching this, Tom agrees to let her cut his. Soon he looks as though he has undergone a round of chemo. I am afraid the neighbors will think we have started some kind of cult.
I emailed Tom's brother, who is a military dude & has always teased Tom about his hair.Okay,people in the family have died, divorces have happend & Tom's bro has never called me. 5 minutes after I sent that email , I got a long distance phone call from Mitch!
"Why did you let Mariah cut Tom's hair?" he demanded. "Was he drinking?"
"Of course he was drinking!"I replied"He was drinking, she was drinking & after I saw Tom's hair, I intend to start drinking!"
Well, it gets better.
Mariah was blonde as a tot & is determined to stay that way forever. We have no clue as to what her real hair color is. Tom is still naturally a light ash blonde at his age.
His hair had grown out a bit & he was leaning in the doorway of the bathroom talking to Mariah as she was dyeing her hair.I saw that look in her eyes and headed to the sanctuary of the porch. When Tom came out to join me, his hair was surfer boy blonde! On a man of 52, it looks like a walking midlife crisis!
Wait ,it gets better still...We had gone off for a bit &left Tom unsupervised. When we returned, I noticed Tom's hair, which had again grown out a bit, looked odd. "Did you cut your hair?""Yeah, but I couldnt' find a comb or scissors,so I used a fork & a utitily knife".
I went back out to the porch!
