you’ve known me for, oh I don’t know, let’s say 4 years give or take

in those 4 years or so you have never, not once, commented on my hair – good, bad or otherwise

in the last 8 months or so I have had at least 2 feet – yes 24 freaking inches – cut off and the style has changed radically

no comment, and that’s ok

you arrive at my house for what you know is going to be a rather, how shall we say this, INTENSE conversation and what is the first thing you say as you walk in my front door?

“oh good, your hair is growing out”

amazingly he is still alive
