Haircuts and heartbreaks

F--- you, M! And F--- you, too, and your red hair, Y!!!
I commend the 5M for chopping off her hair in protest. F--- you, M! And F--- you, too, and your red hair, Y!!! The great thing about hair is that it grows back. It's not like lopping off an ear.

A haircut is a great way to mark a personal change. I remember shearing my tresses when I was a heartbroken young lass. Someone commented, "You've changed your hair." My response was, "No I've changed."

But these days I don't need a heartbreak to go for the transformational haircut. I give my hair stylist free reign over my locks. Recently, I've come out looking like Rod Stewart, but that's ok.

I would not say that haircuts are invariably a successful strategy. If I were to try it, for instance, there'd be unfortunate questions about mutant poodles or chihuahuazilla sightings, or something...

I remember a situation where I was courting a fair maiden who was being a little too aloof in responding to my overtures. I mentioned I was going to cut my hair and she said "not too short, I hope". I practically got it shaved. I can still picture her wide eyes when she saw me and asked if I "was happy with that". It definitely got a reaction, and I did get the maiden in the end.
