It being almost back-to-school time, today I took the Joker and the Engineer to our local barbershop for a haircut. I have in mind for my boys to have lovely messed-up surfer hair, but my aim keeps on being thwarted by my lack of ability to describe what I want to the barbers. And by the desire of the barbers to use the clippers without a guard. And sometimes because the barbers unfathomably don’t get the Boden catalogue.
Anyway, today I managed to ensure that not all the hair was chopped off, so the surfer look is not completely out of reach. In the meantime, the Engineer came home with lots of gel in his hair. We decided he looked like an orange puffle (from Club Penguin). Do you agree?
