How I Know It’s Time For a Trim

When the hair goes up in a kewpie doll point, it’s time to haul out the trimmer. It’s not a good look on a 42-year-old man.

I enjoy pie.

Oh, I don’t know. If I saw the total effect (your entire face and how the hair affects your facial features and vice versa), I might agree. Or disagree.

At 57 I’d still sort of like to have a blue mohawk. Blue because I think it would look more professional for work. You know…business appropriate.

I think a blue mohawk and a good quality suit with a nice pair of wingtips would be good. And a tasteful selection of facial piercings (really ears only). Creative…but still professional looking. I can’t imagine facial tattoos. But that’s just me. Unless it was something reasonably discreet. As you can probably tell I’m a pretty discreet person.

Oh, c’mon. It’s 2011. It’s time to stop being retro and head for the future.

No point going through life looking like you probably had your desk up next to the teacher’s for the entire sixth grade. Life should be fun. Or at least as much fun as you can get away with. Some places don’t even like dancing. It’s as if it’s…sinful or something.

Oh, well. If you can’t actually do it, you can think about it. They can’t punish you for that. Yet.

Adulthood: ugh!

It’s a look that worked for my granddad, but I don’t think it was intentional. Besides, it kind of went with his baby face (even as an old man!).
