Another way to beat the credit crunch
This is gratefully received from Maggie who awarded me this last week – many thanks Maggie!
I hereby pass it on to all of you who read this blog because you must be people of distinction to read it!
Himself has just departed after a Home Hair Cut. This is the latest is the battle to beat the credit crunch here in Cornwall. (Don't mention the wine consumption. That is up to its normal levels.)
Himself bought a pack of 3 thinning scissors from the Pound Shop - you know, three pairs for a pound. He's used them to cut Mollie's coat before now - amid much growling from her - but the other day he decided to use them on himself.
I have to say, it didn't look too bad though this is probably more a comment on his barber than anything else. So today he decided he needed help with the back.
He stood outside in the yard with the mirror and a comb and handed me the scissors. "Here you go, Pop. Munch it and comb it."
I took a swipe and at that moment he leaned forward to remove a snail from one of the flowerpots. "Don't!" I said, having removed a large chunk of hair.
He assumed his previous stance and I chopped - sorry, munched - and combed. Pocketfuls of fine white hair fell, like dandelion clocks, all over the yard. The end result is - well, I don't think I'm going to win Distinctive Hairdresser of the Year Award.
Just as well he's not vain.
