Life can be unexpected…

Life can be unexpected, especially when you suffer from deep bouts of brain fog. The problem with brain fog is the heavier it is, the less you are aware of it.

As I’m sure most of you have noticed, I tend to keep my hair short. This is done with a pair of hair clippers and a 1-inch blade attachment to lengthen the cut. Well… sometimes mishaps can occur, such as forgetting to put on the blade attachment due to heavy brain fog.

Starting with my usual gusto, I ran the clipper up a long path along the back of my head and up to the front. As the hair fell to the floor at the end of my arc, I thought to myself, “Wow, it sure grew a lot since my last haircut!”

It was then when I realized what had happened. I’d left the blade attachment on the kitchen sink next to the coconut oil used to oil the blades before running the clipper.

Once Jeremy got involved, one thing led to another and next thing you know a mohawk was born! Haircut Fun

However it was short lived when we saw it was off center. My first swipe of the clipper blades had taken me too far across the top of my scalp. There was no rescuing the mohawk without it becoming too narrow or being uneven.

Now I’ve a freshly shorn head with a very white scalp. Luckily I have a nice hat purchased for a $1 at a yard sale last week. I’m sure it will become a semi-permanent fixture on my head until my hair grows out again in another couple of months – or at least until my scalp tans!

Oddly, I’m surprised to find myself rather disappointed at losing the mohawk. I had it for only 20 minutes tonight, but in that time I grew attached to it, though knowing I’d likely shave it off in the morning.

Who knows, maybe there will be another mohawk in my future…

    LOL Lisa πŸ˜€ ,

    Such a fun story and the mohawk looks so comical… I’ve certainly never visualised you so close shaven save a small tuft. It almost looks a reverse beard (if you flip the picture upside down). πŸ˜€

    Thanks for the story, as always it is good to know what shananingins you get up to and, with a bit of a helping hand from Jeremy! πŸ˜€

    hairy πŸ˜€ hugs!

  2. Yes indeed, there is no telling what Jeremy and I might do sometimes!

    Hugs back, though mine are more fuzzy. hehe πŸ™‚

  3. I think you make a cute baldie:-) I cut my own hair, too, but mine is very fine and in order to cut I keep it chin length so I can cut half way around by tilting my head to see that it’s pretty straight, then going the other direction, trimming a few strays and I’m done. Don’t sunburn that head!:-)

    • Hi Pris! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the cute comment! hehe πŸ™‚ I’m very lucky to have a reasonably shaped head – it could be much worse. lol

      I’m being careful with wearing my hat today and staying out of the worst sunburn times. I actually found another hat on the side of the road today – the island will provide! πŸ™‚

      Hugs! πŸ™‚

    Hahhh, now you are ready to hit the streets in a very “thug life” sort of way. Time to earn your coconuts!

    Nice shaped head, Lisa.
    You could wear that style of haircut anytime – I like it.

    • Thanks Vicki! Perhaps in another year or two when I’m trim and tan, then I’ll be interested in a “look at me” type haircut. πŸ˜€
