I almost skipped work today.
No, I wasn’t sick. I’ve escaped flu season unscathed (so far, knock on wood).
What I failed to escape was the electric razor I use for my sideburns. My wife always cuts my hair to save us money, and then I go into the bathroom and shave around my ears (she doesn’t trust herself to do that very well). Unfortunately, I have a bad left eye, so shaving the left ear is a difficult proposition. With one slip of the hand on Sunday, I cut way too high. What to do? I shaved it high on both sides of my head. I mean, you have to even the sideburns out, no matter what.
Now, if I cut a jagged line through the back of my hair, I’d look like Wild Thing from the movie Major League. It’s that bad.
But, here I am, at work. I’ll be hiding at my desk, waiting for the hair follicles to grow.
