Hair, day eight

Last week I went to the dentist and was paired with a new hygienist. As she draped the bib around my neck she said, “I absolutely love your haircut!”

“Wow, thanks!” I said. “I’m growing it out, actually. This is the in-between stage.”

Without any sarcasm she made a weird face and said, “Well then, I take it back.”

I wondered throughout the entire cleaning if the proper response was to bite her hands.
