Now, Dad, Mike, and my boys all have identical hair cuts... the one hair cut, besides a burr, that I know how to give (there is a big back story here... should I go on? Yes? Ok, here goes...). When Mike was in the Police Academy and I was in PT school, being newly married, I'm sure you will understand that $15 a week for his hair cuts was just more than our little budget could stretch. So, I went to Sally's Beauty Supply and bought the cheapest clippers they had. After watching the 1993-ish video of "How to cut hair," which featured a very outdated woman giving a fade to a little African American boy, there sat poor Mike, terrified and grimmacing in the kitchen chair, while I began a process that would end up being a MAJOR learing curve. After several months of crooked fades and just plain ol' bad haircuts (about the time he graduated from the Academy), I found my grove and Mike finally looked presentable. Now, several years, another purchase of better clippers, and 4 kids later, eventhough we could afford for him to go get his hair cut by a professional, we both still really enjoy that time together. And besides, where else can you get a top-rate hair cut at 10:30 at night, sealed with a kiss ;) ?
So, coming back full circle, here I present to you Dad, with his Mike-Anthony-Jake-Look-Alike hair cut. Thanks for your trust, Dad!
