During the second week of March I had a thought that I ignored. The thought was-“Maybe I should get a haircut.” I ignored the thought because my morning class was on break for one week and I just wanted to have a lazy week. I should have paid attention to that thought because the next week the shutdowns started including places to get a haircut. I still need a haircut.
So not being able to get a haircut quite yet, I did something radical. I bought a comb. I have not combed my hair in many many years because I usually keep my hair so short it never needs to be combed. I bought the comb, but it did not come with instructions.
I tried a few times and failed at using the comb.
I finally figured out how to use the comb that did not come with instructions.
I still need a haircut, but I did trim my beard Monday afternoon because my summer school morning class started Tuesday.
I thought perhaps a few of the students might be Yazidi and I did not want to trigger sad memories. The murderers who came into Iraq killing Yazidis all had beards. So I trimmed mine way down.
So my hair is still too long for a hot summer, but my beard is trimmed.
What fun silly adventures have you had during the shutdown?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
