For readers who have been following my hair growing experiment and my progress report, you may be shocked to be informed that I visited the barber yesterday. Well, I exaggerate a little as I wish it had been a barber shop but alas these days one can only find unisex hairdressers with not a strop in sight. I do miss the thrill of a cut-throat being sharpened.
Anyway, needless to say the result was the same. My lovely locks have been clipped back to a respectably neat short back and sides and although disappointed that the experiment has ended, the fact that my wife’s daily reminders to get a haircut have instantly ceased makes it tolerable. The only regret I have, even though my rugged good looks are now back on show to the world, is that I won’t get to find out how long my hair would’ve grown. Having made it to the region of my shoulders I was rather hoping to stick it out until the middle of my back. Alas no.
So onward to new territories. With this experiment having been ‘cut short’ and behind me now I’m really hunting for a new scientific experiment to conduct.
