An Interview and a Haircut
Firearms are discussed freely in my barbershop. On the bulletin board, there are several for sale notices for guns, boats and coon hounds. The barbers wear smocks imported from the Philippines. Years ago an armed robber learned to late that one of the men with clippers carried a .357 magnum underneath his smock. I do not doubt that the lump under the barber's smock is still as lethal. When I enter my barbershop, it is likely there are more people there who are armed than unarmed. That alone gives me a good feeling.
My barber already knew how I wanted my hair cut. I like a 0-0.5 Navy Reg with my neck shaved, and I don't give a damn if my bald spot shows. A man who's worried about a patch of skin on top of his head has a bit of a security problem as a man if you ask me. The bald pate is caused by testosterone. 'nuff said. Until a person gets a haircut so short their sweat runs right off the crown of their head, they just don't know how good it can feel. Once done, I tipped my barber and was a step closer to that job I want.
