A Visit to the Hair Stylist

hair style braidCategory:                            A visit to the hair stylist

Anxiety Level:                   Depends

 Level of Difficulty:            Also Depends

 Result of Blowing It:        Really Depends

My daughter, Kate, and I visited the hair stylist.  Guys visits barbers, gals go to “stylists.”  I need hair maintenance every three weeks.  My regular maintenance includes a 5-on-the-side-with-scissors-on-top.  I’m usually done in 11 minutes.

 DAUGHTER: Dad, my hair needs work. 

ME: Okay, you go first.

STYLIST: Do you want a style, trim, or cut?

ME:  There’s a difference?

 Kate walked to the chair and quickly made friends with the stylist who promptly pulled out a reference book containing photos, styles, colors, curls…a ton of information.  Not only was I the only guy around, I was the only person.  So, I bided time in the waiting area and thumbed through magazines.  Forty-five minutes later Kate was done.

ME: Uh, looks nice…what did she do?

DAUGHTER: You can’t tell?!  Hey, what’s that you’re reading?

ME: [Silence, embarrassment]

DAUGHTER: Is that Cosmopolitan?

ME: Uh…

 Guys can learn a lot reading Cosmopolitan Magazine.  But I sure wish they had photos of a style, trim, or cut (and gave advice on the right thing to say after a female gets their hair done).

    Right now it appears that Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now (from what I’ve read). Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Hey all, its hard to find good help these days. People just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. Consider whoever wrote this post (blog), they must have been working hard to write that well and I bet it took a good bit of their time. I work with people who can’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.

    • Eric Miller says:

      Hey, many thanks for the heads up. I’ll see what the deal is. My main site (www.etcguy.com) is also having a bit of trouble. The site is live, just clunky. Eric
