It's belated on both accounts, but I did want to acknowledge the 30th birthdays of two cuppers. I hope both of you have had great birthday weeks, and I hope your Turkey days are super chill.
When I found this, I thought it was a DIY and maybe a present for Dan. Yeah...I'm not that good.
It happened over the weekend. It was an autumn sunny day in Seattle; so, right off the bat you knew it was going to be a weird day. My hair was a tad long, so I went for a haircut. The place targets men: there are tv screens at each station showing sport events. The hair dressers wear team jerseys and what can be best described as loose yoga pants.
The lady doing my hair was very nice though a tad chatty for my taste. "Where are you from?", "How long have you been in the states?", "Is that your wife over there? Oh, she looks young!" were but a few of her questions. I have to say that things got a little weird when she said that my son looked Asian and followed it up with "but you are latino and she's white, uh?". Awkward silence, then more questions.
She finishes the haircut and then takes me to wash my hair. She places me in a luxurious massage leather chair, covers my face with a steamed towel and proceeds to shampoo my hair. Nice.
The royal treatment lasted for what could not have been more than five minutes. "Did you like it?" she asks; I did. We are back at the original more pedestrian chair. She trims some hairs close to my neck ("I'm very particular"), and tells me she wants to style my hair with a faux hawk. Normally I would tell the person making such suggestion to go fuck themselves, but she was trying to be nice. I simply smile and with a pleading voice I say something to the effect of "no, that's not going to be necessary".
More stray hairs get cut. She repeats the point that my wife looks young, and promises that she can make me look young too. Then, out of nowhere, she stares at my face, and blurts "Your eyebrows are so long!" Sheepishly, I smile. Then, with a concern look and fingers gesturing scissors, she asks "can I cut them?". Ookay...
I simply closed my eyes as my majestic and wild eyebrows were being tamed. There was nothing I could do. I got manscaped.
