It arrived on the scene Saturday, has been out in the open for all the world to see for four days now, but has managed to mingle among us virtually undetected for that period.
Not every haircut can earn undercover status this quickly, so it was quite the achievement. Who knew that there was an international head of hair of mystery just waiting to be recruited under that mop top I’d been sporting for weeks?
Don’t let the photo of Dr. Evil fool you. This spy hair is working for the good guys. I just chose the dome chrome pic because my new ‘do has been just as invisible as Dr Evil’s infamous locks.
Maybe I’m more observant than most, but I pride myself on noticing when someone gets a haircut. Just this morning, I told a coworker that her hair looked different and we chatted about her new style.
Of course, she made absolutely no mention of my new haircut.
Yes, a few people have commented on the cut and seem to like it. Mrs. Fish complimented me on my new, shorter ‘do on our morning walk.
My attractive neighbor, who was turning heads this morning in her robe as she manhandled the garbage to the curb, told me she had noticed my new haircut the night before but had forgotten to mention it. Obviously, tossing grapes is distracting!
Other than that, maybe one or two other people have said something.
Is there some sort of sexist double standard at work here? I get the feeling men’s haircuts go unnoticed on a grand scale, while women always seem to garner attention for doing something different with their locks.
Perhaps it’s just because men tend to get the same cut over and over, while women put a little more thought and style into the process?
Or is sexist of me to even offer that as an explanation?
National security and all.
For the record, though, it looks great.
Maybe you’ll notice it after you’ve read this blog post…
Yes, Modern Philosophers, this is the sort of thing I think about when I’m not feeling well. My Deep Thoughts tend to run to the absurd when the germs try to take over my body.
I just hope my hair doesn’t get sick. The world should not be deprived of its newest hero.
