Hair Today …

My Love made the appointment for last Tuesday. Not being one for history, she didn’t realize the significance of selecting December 7 as the day for her and Thing 1 to finally make good on someone’s promise to chop off her tresses for a good cause.

“Pearl Harbor Day,” I told her. “When the Japanese bombed us into World War II. ‘A date which will live in infamy.’”

“Oh.”

“It’s OK. I’d still love you bald. Or looking like that crazy doll head with the erector-set legs in the first Toy Story movie. I mean, you did put up with my mustache for a month.”

Combined, the two of them donated seven locks, each at least 10 inches long.

And hardly a tear was shed.

And yes, Thing 1 still wanted to know if she could get paid.

She settled for a plate of sliders and wings at a restaurant down the street.

  3. There once were two lasses of fair
    With "Tangled" like tresses of hair
    They went far and above
    Donating their locks for love
    What a truly inspiring pair.

    (Plus they looked really kick-ass with their sassy new dos!)

    Kevin, you have a beautiful family, in every sense of the word.

  8. Great job guys. My wife was inspired to do this when you wrote the original post about it.

    Nothing like a free haircut.

    They both look quite lovely, too.

    Not that they didn't look lovely before. It's just a different lovely now.

    Crap.

  11. How absolutely wonderful of both of them. They look beautiful and they ARE beautiful on the inside.
    They chose my birthday to donate so that makes me feel even more happy about it... I donated my locks at the end of October.

  12. Wow! That was a lot of hair to donate - how long did it take to grow? Congrats on a job well done! And the transformation was like going from the '70's to the 21st century. Very cool!

  13. Cocotte: Thing 1's hair hasn't been that short since she was 2. My Love hasn't had a major cut in like two or three years.

    Lorie: Then I guess My Love knew what she was doing. Belated birthday wishes and kudos to you for donating, Lorie.
