and it’s a pretty nice haircut

the other night i was at a bar with some friends.  an older guy with curly white hair came over to our table and said to me, “hey, were you at sachin’s party?”

i was.  “i was,” i said.  “all of us were.”

“oh,” he said, “i guess i just recognized you.”

this happens to me a lot.  “it’s the hair,” i said.

“we were all in costume that night,” he said.  we were not.  “though i guess you’re always in costume!”

“uh-huh,” i said.  i’m used to that response.

but why can’t my hair be my hair and not a costume?  i don’t do it this way because it feels like a costume, i do it because i like the way it looks.  and it looks awesome.
