People are reacting in interesting ways to my newly short hair.
N simply failed to notice any change.
“So?” I asked him when he came home.
“This is a beautiful dress you are wearing,” he said.
“Forget the dress! There is something more important going on.”
“Huh?” he responded.
I’m taking this as a good sign. The man adores me with or without hair, what can be better than that?
Then I told my sister about the haircut over the phone.
“This is very unexpected! I’m not sure I can deal with this! This is too much,” she said.
“Look, I haven’t worn my hair this short for 23 years,” I explained. “I decided it was time for a change.”
“But these were good 23 years!” she responded in a tragic tone she will use when delivering the eulogy at my funeral seventy years from now.
Let’s see what my students say tomorrow.
