The good thing about having hair that inspires comment is that I don't have to rely on mirrors to tell me when I need a haircut: some friend or co-worker or casual acquaintance or deranged homeless fellow is bound to let me know. Here's a sampling of opinions from the last week or so:
"You need to get your hair cut every two weeks. Stop fighting it. Give the people what they want."
--my best friend
"Longer hair makes you look old."
"Zac looks better with his hair short."
--Kito's roommate (relayed by Kito)
"Your hair looks nice--which must mean you're about to get it cut."
--long-hair aficionado Ren
The people have spoken. My appointment is scheduled for tomorrow after work.
