    NTS,

    You're doing great, beautiful! It's all about the balance 😀xdyas52ng98x.jpg

    I'm the guy who was creepy following you all over the grocery store with the same exact items in my cart 😬...

    Although I've switched to animal cookies this time around... They are actually less than half the calories of an oreo each 🤷🏽‍♂️

    And only a third as delicious 😋

    What she said! 😉

    True but after like the 10th package I've bought, I was ready for a change 😬

    Since the kids have been off school I no longer feel the need to have convenience snacks in the house. We have been oreo free for two months! 😢

    Phew! I thought they were pickles or green bananas which, as you know, are an mfp violation.

    Next time, charge the clippers before starting your bald fade 🙈

    okay, I've always been pretty proud of my hair.

    I have dark, healthy hair and there's not a lot of grey peeking thru (thanks mom / thanks dad / thanks God).

    anyway, for the last couple of decades it's been - good haircut + clean shaven; that's just how I am.

    Covid hits and I think: 'No client meetings, no social interaction.... why not just let the beard grow.'
    10 weeks later, it's been trimmed, however make no mistake, it's a full beard.

    Barbershops everywhere are closed and my hair is getting a little shaggy (like most everyone else).

    I have hair trimmers with a variety of attachments.

    Three weeks ago, the TrophyWife gives me a trim around the ears and neckline. No worries, it looks good and I'm happy.

    Flash forward to last weekend.

    I ask her to do the same..... only this time, I screw-up.
    I give her the trimmers with the wrong attachment. It's the close one, the number #1.

    She does a quick pass and utters "Ut oh..."

    I look in the mirror.

    This isn't good, but I think it can be salvaged.

    She trims more on the sides and the back.

    Then some more.

    She says: ' You need to take a look at the back, it's not good.'

    In the mirror, I take a look at the back; she's right, it's not good.


    I think: 'I can fix this; I damn sure can!'

    The Trophywife gives up and leaves not wanting to inflict any more carnage. I don't blame her.

    I'm right-handed and I'm using my left hand while looking into a mirror that's looking into another mirror while trying to repair a haircut on the back of my melon. The odds of success are slim.

    However, I make a pass and think: 'Dang, yeah... this is okay.... just one more pass up just a little higher and I'm good! "

    I make the last pass with the clippers. Complete Disaster.

    I looks like mange on a hyena. (with apologies to hyenas everywhere.)

    Okay, man... think.... what to do?

    Semper Fi

    Yep... clippers on the closest setting. I ran that *kitten* front to back with about 12 passes to level it all out.

    The last time I had a cut like this, I was in the second grade playing little league baseball during the Summer months.

    Family reactions were:

    'Well, that's different.'

    and

    'Cool, I like it.'

    and

    'You screwed up, you should have opted for the mohawk.'

    anyway.... from clean shaven and longer, styled hair to full beard & buzz cut.


    That is all


    ..... carry on.

    in due time.

    the buzzcut occurred on Saturday.

    everyday since, I've been taking a headshot photograph, standing in the same spot at the same time.

    I'll eventually pull them all together.

    *noted that you want to see it.
