A mullet for my birthday

Well after much procrastination, I finally visited my barber on Tuesday for a long-overdue haircut. The way I see it, the longer I go between haircuts is money saved and a way to be frugal in a tough economy.

While I feel better with shorter hair, I actually miss my longer locks left on the barbershop floor but I know they will grow back soon.

I prefer wearing my hair longer rather than shorter. I have no desire to have a butch haircut; in fact, I don't believe I have the correct head shape for a butch. I had one a couple times as a kid and when I entered the U.S. Army for basic training, but not since then.

At various times I've sported mullet-style hair lengths; the last time was at age 50 when I had a photo taken for my driver license renewal. After that I remember getting a haircut, as I had grown weary of my longer hair. I have some great photos evidencing my mullet prowess (that's not me in the photo above). Maybe one day I'll have then scanned to share here.

Since I prefer longer hair, maybe I'll let mine grow longer again so next February I'll have a mullet for my birthday.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

If you grow a mullet, I want to see it. I prefer my hair short so I don't have to comb it. I don't have bad hair days. I've had a bad hair life. Thus I quit trying and keep it short now. I don't go to a barber. My wife cuts it at home.
