Saturday morning, at the spur of the moment, I decided to take the girl to get her hair cut. She'd been after me about getting a haircut for awhile and I don't really know why I put it off as long as I did. She hated having her long hair brushed and fixed and I hated brushing and fixing it, so the new style makes for happiness all around.This was her first real haircut ever and I was a bit worried about how it would go. But once she hopped into the chair she was super still and silent as a mouse. So much so, that I'm considering getting a barbers chair for home.The girl originally wanted short hair like mine and while I have no problem with that in theory, it's all I can do to maintain proper upkeep of my hair, so we decided to go for something a bit more low maintenance. Maybe next time we'll go crazy and ask for bangs.
After we came home, the boy was really sweet to her the rest of the day. When I asked why his response was, "When someone really annoying gets a haircut, it's easy to be nice to them because you momentarily forget it's that annoying person."
Do you think I can convince all the annoying people in my life to get haircuts?
