Communication is Necessary for a Haircut
With the money you save by cutting your family’s hair, you can purchase a few more organic items for your home! (and no . . . this is NOT another review)
But don’t allow a miscommunication to jeopardize your organic lifestyle!
Just when I thought that my husband and I were excellent communicators, I accidentally buzzed his hair.
You see, for seven of the ten years we have been married, I have cut Hottie Hubby’s hair. When he was in graduate school, we didn’t own a clipper set. And when we lived in India, I couldn’t top the scalp massage Hottie received with each hair cut.
But when we moved back here, it seemed more cost effective for me to cut Hottie Hubby’s hair so that we could afford my expensive haircuts!
Well, last week I cut Hottie Hubby’s hair. Except this time, I cut it too close. I was expecting the haircut to occur in the same pattern that has occurred countless late nights. He does the initial once over shave with the #5. At that point, I come along and make sure that all obstinate long hairs are taken care of before switching to the #2 setting to create a trendy fade. However, it didn’t happen that way that fateful night that truly displayed how well we have developed the art of forgiveness and unconditional love.
Because the Hottie Hubby knew that I was scheduled to be up late, he completed the #5 initial shave. But he failed to tell me that he had removed the #5 guard and replaced it with the #2 guard. When I assumed barber responsibilities, I quizzically looked at our beloved Wahl clippers thinking something was amiss, but dismissed my premonition because we have always trimmed his hair the SAME way for seven years.
Oh, sometimes the Holy Spirit speaks in such a soft whisper. I should have listened to that still small voice. Before I knew it, I could see Hottie Hubby’s scalp. This uncontrollable giggle overwhelmed me as I confessed my honest mistake.
We both admitted our fault and
mowed moved on. What could I do but finish the cut and make it appear that the shortness was intentional, as if we were pretending that Indiana was entering the dog-days of summer, instead of the cool nights of September.
I have had many people react rather strongly that there is no way they could cut their spouses hair. Well, try it. You can buy an instructional video. With a little bit of patience, cutting hair becomes like riding a bike. You never forget how to do it. I enjoy cutting Hottie Hubby’s hair. He is at my mercy and we often have a great time dialoging during his hair appointment! If you mess it, it will grow back!
