“I almost cut my Hair”


Actually. I did. If you compare the photo here, to the one in my blogger profile, you'll see a drastic change.
I was gonna use "strikethrough" to scratch out "almost", in the title. But blogger.com won't let me.
I don't play Heavy Metal anymore... and being I'm gonna be the proud father of a second daughter in about six weeks: the hair had to go.
I did the math in my head. 20 minutes a day getting my hair in a nice neat braid, times 7 days a week equals 140 minutes a week. round that to just two hours a week and multiply times 52 weeks a year and you have 110 hours of time saved not fighting my curly locks.
It feels great. I'm excited to have another baby girl, and now she won't be able to rip my hair out when I'm holding her! I've gotten nothing but compliments today.
I can still play "I almost cut my hair" on the guitar. I just love the lyrics.
Almost cut my hair
It happened just the other day
It's gettin kinda longI could have said it was in my way
But I didn't and I wonder whyI feel like letting my freak flag fly
Cause I feel like I owe it to someone
Must be because I had the flu' for Christmas
And I'm not feeling up to par
It increases my paranoiaLike looking in my (rear-view) mirror
and seeing a police car
But I'm not giving in an inch to fear
Cause I promised myself this year
I feel like I owe it to someone
When I finally get myself together
I'm going to get down in that sunny southern weather
And I find a place inside a laugh
Separate the wheat from the chaff
I feel like I owe it to someone
Now when I sing it, I can reminisce about my unmanageable hair. It just wasn't sustainable. [big smile] I've transformed my "freak flag" into a false flag . I'm still the same Sean. Highly independent and argumentative towards most generally accepted information. I'm just approachable now. WWII Veterans can talk to me in line at the grocery store without feeling uncomfortable... and all the College girls can take take a second look because they are interested, not disgusted. They just shouldn't do it when I'm with my wife! [bigger smile]
Look for more from me this week. I just wanted to post somthing lighthearted, and show off my "regular boy's haircut".
PEACE!

  1. It is definitly pleasant to see a reference to Steven Jesse Bernstein in a post... :)
    The husband let his hair go a few years ago, I still miss it to be honest, but he prefers it in the warm weather.
