Mr. Fuck-up or Mr. Fool?

A Fool's Tale

I felt like my hair was getting too long two days ago and decided to cut it. For the past couple of years, I've been using electric clippers with several different size guides and accessories that I never have mastered. I use as few of them as I can get away with, most times. So far, I'd gotten away with being slouchy, but this time I decided I'd make more effort for once to reach WAY BACK behind my head with the clippers, which are pretty heavy, and clip the hair on the back of my head that's always left much longer than needed to match the rest of my haircut length. BIG MISTAKE! My arms aren't long enough and my strength isn't great enough to do a good job and I ended up less like I'd cut my hair and more like I'd shaved it back there!

Thank you very much, Mr. Fuck-up, where you been so long?

Oh, well, it'll grow back in a month or so, I guess. I don't know if I'm seldom around anyone who is observant or if it's just that all the ones I see regularly are not the "commenting" kind, but since I wear hats so much of the time, my new "skin" job may not draw much discussion of how those heavy clippers finally made a complete fool of me. La di dah...


  1. Yes, I often have a similar problem, being a self-hairdressing person often needing to trim the hair on the back of my head. Wish our heads were on a swivel. Maybe we should put in a suggestion to the Evolution Department, c/0 Heaven or Hell or wherever, for next time around? If there is one, or if there is one as a human being.

    Glad you didn't succumb to the cigarette urge, mentioned in an earlier post. Maybe a joint wouldn't hurt though? I've never tried one myself, never had the chance as it happens, but they say the effect is one worth experiencing. :-)

  2. Careful, the Evolution Dept. might send us back as English sheepdogs or Australian shepherd dogs! We'd end up as fuzzy-wuzzies all over!

    I'd be afraid that smoking pot or anything else would revive old memories when I smoked both and it would damage my self-control! Better to play safe, however boring.
