Surprise, Surprise, Surprise...

I was attempting to cut my hair last night. It was late, and I was going to do a quick 1/4'' trim on my head and beard.

It was going swimmingly along the side of my head and I transitioned to the top. I made a couple swipes and was moving across my head from right to left. While going for a 'center cut,' a strange thing happened... what looked like the 1/4 " clipper guard ( which I knew was only my imagination) fell into the trash can with my shorn locks. The stranger part of that is that my clipper-holding hand continued it's shearing motion before I could confirm whether my imagination was, indeed, reality.

The result was all too realistic...


I never got overly angry. I think I was a little stunned.


Insert Gomer Pyle's Famous line...




Or, to quote Chevy Chase in "Christmas Vacation"...






It took me two seconds to realize that I had zero options. I was going to have to 'summer-cut' before summer. (Fortunately, I have avoided such mishaps during the bitter cold months of working outdoors)


I think I'll keep the beard long for a couple days and impersonate Jeff Bridges character from Iron Man.

What's life without surprises, right?
And, in this economy, I'm thinking about all the money I'm saving in shampoo and other hair care product. (that miniscule amount will be diverted straight to the gas pump unfortunately)

well... happy hair cut, everybody.

You know...(or maybe you don't) I've ALWAYS had a thing for bald heads.
I CAN imagine the "surprise, surprise, surprise" though....

That is just too funny, Jim! One reason I don't want to cut Allen's hair any more!!

Hahahahah. Awesome. I had a "hair surprise" once. I decided to dye my hair a shade darker and it turned BLACK within minutes... almost like a halloween wig.
