...if I had to cut my hair? I've got to move with the fashions, or be outcast. - Pete Townshend from Quadrophenia
So here's a picture of me that I posted here from about a year and half ago. Ladies...try to keep it together, okay?
Since then, I've gone for about 3 or 4 haircuts. Once every 4-6 months. Just a trim each time to keep things a little neater. The last one was in September when I had about 4 inches of hair cut off all around. Currently, my hair is about 8-9 inches longer than it appears in the above picture. I haven't been able to do the old top-knot hairdo in quite a while because it leaves too much hair falling past my shoulders to the top of my back for my comfort. My everyday hairdo lately has been a ponytail. I don't think I've worn my hair down in about 6 months now. For more than an hour or so, anyway.
So I'm contemplating a change. I think that I'm gonna hit my rock n' roll barber shop down the road for a quick fix to get my hair back to the length it was in that picture. But after that? I'm thinking about going for the Full Monty come Spring. The only thing holding me back is that Gia prefers me with longer hair. She will still love me as much (she says), but she prefers the longer hair. Honestly, I feel the same way about her. She wants to do a real short pixie cut, but I keep talking her out of it.
And some baldness is starting to creep in around back. It's completely hidden by the ponytail, but it's there and I know it's there. And I've always said that I would cut it all off if it ever became an issue. Not that it would be an issue for anyone else but me, ya understand? It's just something that I've always said I would do.
Besides, I think it's good to totally change your image every few years. Slyde will tell you that I morph into a totally different person every half-decade or so. He jokes that the next time he sees me, I will probably be a young Asian boy.
I think he just secretly likes young Asian boys, if you ask me.
