Driven to Madness

This photo is just for illustration purposes. Kasha wouldn’t really harm me if I got my hair cut elsewhere in an emergency. (I don’t think so, anyway.)

I have a Wahl Cordless Trimmer that is AWESOME. I use it to trim my eyebrows and to touch up the hair near my sideburns and ears. It’s great between haircuts. If your man doesn’t have one, get him one.

However, a trimmer is too little too late when a haircut is overdue. When the entire head needs attention, self-trimming around the ears is as futile as an amateur using a Sham Wow to clean up a giant deep ocean oil spill. It needs the full attention of a professional.

That’s where I am right now. I really, really, really, need a haircut.

Kasha cuts my hair, and I’m a Saturday customer. Poor Kasha, she was out of town for a family emergency the last two Saturdays.

Bless her heart, as we say in Texas. But I’m losing my mind.

My hair has a heaviness that I find uncomfortable. It looks and feels too long, and I’m pretty sure I can actually hear it growing.

I’m doing my best to concentrate, but I’m losing the battle. I’ll bet you’ve been here. Driven to the brink of insanity because you’re overdue for a haircut.

I confess – all day Saturday, I kept thinking, I can get my hair cut at this place or that place. No, no, no! I’ll wait for Kasha. She has a special talent for bringing order to this stuff that grows randomly on my head.

Now I’m counting the hours until Saturday and trying to turn off all self-awareness of my head. I’m going a little nuts.

So what’s the point of this blog post? Let’s see. The Wahl trimmer is nice, waiting too long for a haircut can be maddening, and PLEASE TELL ME YOU FEEL MY PAIN!

I promise my next blog post will be more useful and purpose-driven. I will have had a haircut and recovered by then.

    I know just how you feel. It seems as if your hair looks great then you wake up the next day and you need a cut. For some reason your hair stylist can’t understand the emergency of your situation and makes you wait at least a day or two, that is if you are lucky. I feel your pain!
