Impulsiveness and Frugality (cheapness) and Vanity Do NOT Mix!!!
I woke up this morning with my hair all skeewampers. Argh! I really needed a haircut. Lee suggested that I walk over to a salon and get one. No way! What a ridiculous idea! I’m not paying some stranger to cut my hair! We’re on a fixed income now! I have a MUCH better idea….I think I’ll use Lee’s clippers with the longest guard ( 1/2 inch ) and shave my head!! So, I started shaving the back of my head. I continued shaving all of the back of my head. There was a BIG pile of hair on our shower stall floor. ( I laid down some paper towels of course, ‘cause I’m not crazy!! ) Well, there was no turning back now, but the ( mis? ) labeled guard I was using was NOT a 1/2 inch. It was maybe between an 1/8 th and a 1/4 of an inch. Hmmmmm. Quite a pickle I put myself in. If I had continued with that clipper and guard, I would have been practically BALD. So, I asked Lee if he would drive to Walgreens ( right now!! ) and please buy me a proper clipper with proper guards. Yes, of course he would! I waited for his return. Upon his return, I practically ripped the bag from his hands, tore open the clipper kit, put the 1/2 inch guard on, and….went for it!!
The result is about what one would expect from such an impulsive decision!! But, ya know what? I’m going with it!! Lee says I’m a character!
By the way, I’m disabling the comments section for this particular post!! ( yeah right, like I know how to do that!! )
