floyd the barber

I'm now so cheap that I cut my own hair. Sometimes I use a mirror for the back, sometimes not. Last week I asked Traci if she'd start cutting it for me. She said, "I can't cut hair."

Two days later, Paige came downstairs after Traci gave her a bath. I noticed something about her hair.

"Traci, what happened to Paige's hair?"

"I cut it. What's wrong?"

"It's like three inches shorter on one side than the other."

[Traci inspects her work.] "Well, she was sitting on the floor, looking up at the TV while I cut it."

Paige won't even let us touch her hair, let alone cut it. We've had to be very sneaky when cutting it lately. Usually my mom does it while Paige is playing in her backyard. ("Hey Paige, what's that over there?" Snip, snip.) This time, Traci took the task upon herself.

Traci was able to solve the length discrepancy and Paige is now cuter than ever.

She is cute. I cut my own hair and I don't do it purely for cheap reasons. I used to pay $30 for a haircut that I almost liked. I figured I could give myself a haircut I almost like for free.

Hey Spencer - This is Abe here (Yospe, in case you forgot!) I just found your blog off a link from my brother Ike's. Great stuff! I love the music reviews. I will be checking often to get some good ideas.

We saw Traci the other day at the library. Sounds like you guys are doing swell.

I hope you don't mind if I link your blog from my site? Not for other people, just so I can easily find it.

By the way - my blog is located at:
