I had not had my haircut since last June. I started to think about getting a haircut las October, but the COVID dial went to red for severe risk and has stayed there since then. My hair got uncontrollable.
So Wednesday evening, I decided to try to cut it myself using my beard trimmer. The front and top look somewhat okay, but I could not see what I was doing with the back.
Thursday morning I wore my Love Justice baseball cap when I walked into the school where I teach Family Literacy and kept it on until after my class started. The students were trying to figure out why I was wearing it because I have never worn one in class. Then I took my cap off to show them I had cut my hair.
One problem-the back looked real bad.
While I was studying with one small group, one of the students used Google Translate to write a message for me. It said, “Do you have scissors for your long hairs?” Evidently there were patches of hair I missed.
I grabbed some scissors and began to try to find them. She walked over and took over. After ten minutes, it looked better.
When she finished, she look at me and said, “Nunca debe tratar corte su cabello otro vez.” You should never try to cut your own hair again.
At least I provided my students with some entertainment and laughs during this crazy time of COVID.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
