Hair Today…Gone Tomorrow

August 13th, 2008 . by Melissa

Jason has become the next Paul Mitchell. For the past few months he has used his beard trimmer to buzz his hair and I’m not talking facial hair (that would be too practical), but rather his handsome, thick, bronze/gold hair-hair. (See pictures in the “Pictures” post below to witness his beautiful work.) In my opinion this takes a lot of talent, especially to get the back of the head and the nape of the neck. At first I was worried and shocked and tried to convince him to pay the $10 to Fantastic Sams. But, let’s face it, he was probably doing a better job than they would. Last night, as we were watching the Olympics, Jase decided it was time for a trim. He began by buzzing off the top part of his hair. He left it that way for a while which was quite humorous, he looked like he had an inverted mohawk or was faking a bald spot. Once the women’s gymnastics team finals were over I headed to bed and Jase headed back to the 1/2 bath to finish what he started. 10 minutes later, as I am flirting with sleep, I hear a loud cry come from downstairs. I immediately assumed he had cut himself or had mowed an eyebrow off on accident. He didn’t leave me in suspense for too long. He came running up the stairs. I looked at him; no blood, eyebrows intact. And then I looked closer. At the front of his head, near his slight widow’s peak was a small patch of skin much, MUCH, shorter than the rest of his already buzzed head. I couldn’t help but laugh, and then I became the loving wife by asking him how it happened. Apparently, inter-buzz he was playing with the various settings on his beard trimmer. While he thought he had returned back to his previous setting he had in fact selected one much shorter. We probably won’t go out much in public for the next few weeks. Stay posted, I hope to get a snap shot of the catastrophe tonight when he’s not looking.
