Bad Hair Day

   How do you know that you're surrounded by amazing people? You go out with a bad haircut and no one comments about it.

   I hadn't had a haircut in 3 months. Yup! The last haircut I had was way back in March. I've meant to go to the barber but ever since I got back from my trip to the Philippines, it's been an unrelentless pace of catching up with work.

   My regular barber was so glad to see me. So he was chatting away as if we'd been buddies forever. A snip here! A buzz there! Hair was flying everywhere! But how do you interrupt someone with a deadly scissors in his hand? After a few minutes, grinning side to side, he proudly asked me if it was OK. "It's perfect!" --- I mean, I'm thinking "Sweeney Todd" so what else was I to say? --- "I think we should put a few clumps of hair back?!" Did I tell you this guy's a hairy gorilla ex-military who rides a motorcycle? And sure --- I even gave the butcher a tip --- a 50% tip!!

   So I'm looking at the mirror and wondering how to grow an inch of hair in an hour. And then I resigned to the fact that nature will have to take its slow course and I will just have to face the ridicule of my fellow man. I didn't even bother to comb that creature on top of my head. And so my wife sees me. She says nothing. I go to a store. No one says anything. Not even a stare! I go to a business function --- nothing! Is it just me? Or has everyone gone blind?

   And then it hit me. Maybe people are really nice. Of course maybe the bad hair is really "all in my head." Nah! I like to believe I walk among good, polite, beautiful people.

    I hope your world is full of nice people too. TGIF polite people!
