When The Going Gets Weird…

Quarantine Day #26? Maybe? I should check and see when this started here…

Anyway, people online have been complaining about needing haircuts, including the subhuman cretins out “protesting” (by which I mean they’re following the right-wing cult leaders who lead them around by the short hairs) about “opening up” the states. Sorry, that got away from me…

Anyway, people online have been complaining about needing haircuts and I know the feeling. I normally keep my hair short and it was about time for a haircut when everything got shut down, so four weeks down the road I’m even shaggier. It’s not that I don’t like how I look – geez, have you people every actually met me? No, it’s that it gets to be a pain in the ass to take care of, it tickles, it just starts to bug me.

Fortunately, I don’t have a complex haircut requirement. Buzz cut, all over. I’ve said for years, if I could see the back to trim it up a little I wouldn’t even bother going to SuperCuts or Great Clips or Fantastic Sam’s or wherever it’s fastest and cheapest.

Time to test that theory.

The clippers came today, the instructions were scanned enough to verify that they could be ignored, the light was fading, and I went out into the back yard to cut my own hair!

Of course, I did it live on Facebook. Because a little bit of harmless insanity goes a long way these days.

It’s not for everyone, but I had fun.

  1. lol. Good work!
    I’ve been cutting my own hair for years. Maybe some people guessed that… but you’re right, it’s the back that’s the problem. In my new house I can arrange the bathroom mirrors to see the back of my head. It doesn’t help the cutting at all.

    • Cutting the back, especially with a couple of sets of mirrors, is one of those things that requires a lot of practice. Sort of like how the astronauts practice in that big swimming pool to fix the space station!

    Nope!! I’m reliving the high school years of the early ’70s with long hair. The wife has offered to cut my hair, but I’m not going there :-}
    The clippers you bought look like they could double as lawn clippers!!
    Stay safe.
