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!
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…
