need either a hair cut or dog tags

I’m thinking about hair and men, and how the two combine.

Today I officially announce that I am hairier than I have been in almost ten years. Now, I am not talking about body hair. I am talking about the scalp and chin. I now have a short, sparse beard and side burns. The hair on my head is almost 2 inches long all over. It is actually touching my ears. I can barely believe it.

I’m not sure that I like it, but after ten years of shaving everyday, I think I’m ready for a break. I think I’m going to let it grow and just see if I can get used to it, because I suspect I look younger and more attractive with hair. When I’m bald, people usually use “scary” instead of “handsome.” So I’ll give it some time and see what happens.

Of course this means I’ll have to find a good barber somewhere… Nothing in life is ever simple, is it?

I still cut my own hair, of course, I still have a regulation Marine cut (not the high `n tight, mind you...I don't want to scare everyone off)'s sort of the 'lifer' cut...

Let it grow, and I'll just run my fingers though it. Shave it, and I'll start the warm oil massage there. You can't lose wither way.

Hair can be nice, but the top of the head doesn't matter so much to me. I'm a goatee kinda gal myself.

Jim, any time I try to cut my own hair, by the time I get it even, I have a mohawk. That's why I just kept it bald for so long. I'll let it grow awhile and see if I can get used to it again. It's part of my lan to change things around. I think if I go back to looking like I used to look, maybe that will jar my brain into thinking like I used to think. If it doesn't help, I'll shave it off again, get on the scales, and be happy that I lost a half pound!

sil, we'll see. To be honest, I'm kind of freaked out by the idea of a woman cutting my hair... I think it has something to do with the Sampson and Delilah story...

Dano, I have a few scars on the ol' brain pan, and I gotta find some one who can cut my hair without bringing blood. If they make me bleed, they get no tip and I never come back. I figure if I can take a razor to my head while looking through two mirrors and not cut myself, some one with clippers looking directly at me has no excuse.

Khaos, I'm going to lose most of the beard. It pisses me off. Every other man in my family is a throwback to Grizzly Adams or ZZ Top, and I'm Mr. Patchy Face. It's coming in pretty thick on my chin though, so maybe I'll keep the goat.

It is actually touching my ears.

This made me laugh. It reminded me of a couple of months ago, when I was able to put my hair in my mouth for the first time.

I normally have somewhat short hair, but about a year and a half ago decided to let it grow. I never realized how beautifully curly my hair was, it gets all the girls asking if its real or not, lol.

Hmm, maybe you should have a contest for what sort of do you should grow? Or facial hair? I like to see you go with the Shaggy look.
