I went to the barber shop to get my usual haircut. #4 clipper all over, neaten the sides and back. I had my eyes closed to keep stray hair from blowing in them and that's when I heard the young lady cutting my hair say what I never wanted to hear. The #4 blade guard had fallen off of the clipper, which proceeded to shave a 5" long, 2" wide swath across the top of my head from back-to-front. Where there should have been 1/2" long hair there was 1 mm long hair, and lots of white skin. Once the shock wore off I knew that there was nothing left to do except to have her shave my whole head.
I don't plan on wearing a hat when I go out. It's not a good look for me but it's hair. It will grow back to a less silly length in a few weeks. I should probably go out in the sun for 10 or 15 minutes a day until I get at least a little tan up there. If I need to be out for longer than that I'll spray on some sunscreen.
She didn't charge me for the haircut, not that I would have paid if she'd tried. But I will be looking for a new barber shop.
Here's the money shot:
