Haircut

My hair is cut. At last! I think this is the first time since I stopped cutting my own hair that it took me until June to get it done. And I was afraid that I was going to have to hold off longer...

When I went out this morning and caught the bus, my little annual mission was going routinely. But when I stepped into the hair salon, I was told they were not open. Was I too early? Has their been a change of hours? No, the place was shut down and is in transition to become Super-Cuts. Well, that blew up my well-laid plans. I could not stand the thought of returning home with my mop of hair. I figured that there must be another hair-chop joint in the area, and I started a very long walk homeward, praying that one of these strip malls would take care of me. It wasn't looking good half-way through my journey under the cloudless June sky. I was surprised by how many 'Nails & Spa' places we have, but, uh, cutting hair apparently isn't as good a business. But I found one at last. And an Asian woman did me right. Asian women ... seem so capable. Maybe I should try to marry one. She even commented that I was "blessed in hair", so much of it, and thick. Balding is one problem that I haven't suffered. Fortunately, I was too sleepy headed to respond, as I would have said something like "I could have used some of that blessing for my face." Silence was better.

So, at least I got my hair cut, but I still had a long walk home. I decided to tough it out instead of wait for the bus, after having walked so far anyway. I picked up some green tea made with ginseng and cane sugar at a convenience store (there was an ad posted on the window and it sounded healthier than regular sweet tea) and just felt grateful that I wasn't going to have to go through this again for another year. What a day, what a day! And I still need to mow this evening. It's grocery week and I cannot put it off --

Oh, no! It's raining! I guess I will get the evening off anyway. There was only a 20% chance of rain today. Fuck, man. The moral: you can't force your plans on nature. It pays to be improvisational and to be easygoing. Funny, I would have welcomed the rain on my walk home, at least after my haircut. I wouldn't have minded getting wet, so long as it came with a coolness and a few clouds.
