Victim (again)

I've been a victim of another dubious haircut. Not as bad as the last time., but disconcerting all the same.

To avoid the Butcher Arta, I made a Sunday appointment with Sonia. The only time she could see me was 8.30. Yes, in the morning, on a Sunday. I turned up for my clandestine appointment at the allotted time (can clandestine be in the morning? it has an after dark ring to it). As ever, she was running late - still doing the person before me (she was only doing the two of us today though, hence the odd hours) - but so as not to attract attention from any passers-by who might want a cut, she'd kept the lights out.

I haven't had my hair cut since the very bad one months ago so it was in need of a good cut. But then she got carried away. Cutting a little off here, then a little off there, then more off there to even it up, oops too much, more off the other side. It was like that episode of Father Ted were the prize car has a small dent in it that Ted tries to hammer out and then next thing you know the whole car is a wreck.

I've examined it - in every mirror in the house and the window of every shop and car I've walked past today and it isn't actually a bad haircut. Its soft and bouncy and healthy looking. But it just isn't me. I've always had long hair and although it had been creeping shorter, this now is definitely not long hair. Its above my shoulders. I don't look like me or perhaps too much like me as my face and neck are vulnerably exposed. People won't recognise me. I'll have to wear a name badge.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

Hmm. I think Joshua's haircut was a little too close to his head too ;)

Roses said...

Quite. All the bloggers of the world unite. Unfortunately, I'm a professional procrastinator...I'll get around to it tomorrow.

Oh hon. At least it's not a hat cut (the one where you go around with a beanie for 6 weeks while it grows out).

Poor consolation when she's taken too much off. Hugs

Hello Su. As a procastinator (like Roses) I was thinking of getting it cut shorter but never quite got up the courage so at least now the decision has been taken out of my hands. It really isn't that bad - I think the test will come at work depending on how many people mention it - if no one says anything I'm taking it as a sign it is awful.

As for Joshua - nice idea although your mis-spelling of blog means we will never unite.

I NEVER like my hair when its first cut - I'm sure you'll grow into it!! :)

Consider it your summer cut. It's hair; it'll grow.
