Mag80, 8/28/11












He didn't like the haircut at all, didn't like
the men who ran the place with its odd twirly
lights. So he went back and broke up their sign
stuffed it in a bag,pulled up his collar
and snuck away like a thief in the night.

Bad haircuts drive a man to do strange things! Good piece!

With some haircuts, it's good to be able to hide under an umbrella.

Usually, a place will fix a haircut no charge. But I see it from his perspective. There's nothing more upsetting than a bad haircut. ; )

What... all because they couldn't fix his bald spot? ;)
