Yesterday morning after work I had to make a couple of stops before I made my way home to let Max out to the backyard to do his business. Number one on the agenda was a haircut.
For the last couple of years I’ve been getting my haircut at the Marvel Beauty School. It’s only a couple off blocks from the station which means I can walk over as soon as I’m finished work. My friend Linda manages the school and can always fit me in on short notice, or maybe I should say, used to be able to fit me in on short notice. Today is the last day the school will be open, but it’s really been shut down for a while now. When I went in yesterday there was nothing but a chair for me to sit on. Linda brought everything she needed to wash and cut my hair from her home. Even the shampoo and conditioner. While I was getting my haircut a couple of guys came by to remove the water heater from the building. It was a very eerie feeling around that place yesterday.
Thank you Linda for all the great haircuts and conversation over the last couple of years. I will officially go down as the last person to get my haircut at the Marvel Beauty School. Remember that, just in case it comes up during a game of Trivial Pursuit.
After my haircut, I was off to buy myself a new watch. Yesterday morning while I was trying, unsuccessfully, to get the coffee machine to work, I had a glance at my watch. I gave it a couple of looks. I knew it wasn’t 1:15, although my watch swore it was! I thought it might just be the battery until I noticed the hour and minute hands were where they should be while the second hand was lying at the bottom of the face of the watch. Hey, aren’t those things supposed to be all together? Indeed they are!
While I was making my run for a new watch I thought I’d better grab some Halloween candy as well.
So this morning I face a brand new day with a brand new haircut, a brand new watch, and a few boxes full of candy(minus a few pieces)! All set for another Halloween night!
I hope some kid compliments me on my haircut tonight and then asks me what time it is!
