The Hair Cut

My father Raymond McAlister as some of you know is a Baptist Preacher. He has never liked my long hair.

I called him a couple of days ago:

Me: Hey dad, do you still have your hair cutting equipment?
Dad: Yes - why?
Me: You want to cut my hair?
Dad: How do you want it?
Me: Your choice, but I want it short.
Dad: Sure - I could hear him smiling.

Kevin, Michael and I left for Tampa yesterday morning, it was a 4 hour trip to his office. Once we were there, dad took us out for lunch, we ate at Golden Corral. After lunch we headed back to his office and he got his equipment out.

Michael took all the pictures that are in this video. I thought he did a good job.

My father told me that his Secretary told him that I could go to her sons barber, dad told her that this was personal. That he need to do this. My father has cut my hair since I was a young boy. So I knew what I was getting into. Plus I knew that he would enjoy cutting my long hair off, since he did not like seeing on me.

I sat there while my hair fell off of my head, for what seemed like an hour, but it was more like 20 minutes.

I am glad that I made my father happy, I am glad that I made my room mates happy. They both told me I look 1000 times better. I feel naked now, but its all ok.

I had long hair for about 20 years, and once it was cut off, it took forever to get used to having short hair. But I think the short hair looks good, and as long as it is what you wanted, that is a great thing.

Wow! Does this mean you hit it big in the Lottery? LOL! Seriously, you look MARVELOUS! How come I don't look younger when I get my hair cut?

I agree that it's probably a smart move as far as finding a job.

And as long as this is what you wanted to do.

time to re-think your goal. The one about your hair and the money :)

Hey, it looks great!! Nicely done, Mr. McAlister, and I think it's sweet that you made your Dad's day. :)

You are really good-looking - - - definitely more handsome with short hair. Also, it will be easier to get a tan on your neck and back now! And an added bonus is you and your dad got to spend some quality time together. I have a question -- - - I will look for your email.

@ Pat - It needed to be done, I believe to find a proper job. It feels different, but I am liking it now.

@ Beth - Yeah he had fun with it. He was smiling alot in the pictures. =o)

@ Miss Lynda - My email addy is on my profile page. Spending quality time with my father is a must. I am glad that my father likes Kevin and Michael too. That always helps.

@ Micheal Rivers - That is what I thought too. When I asked Michael to take pictures for me he asked why. I said it would be great for my site. As I can see it was. Thanks!

@ Lelocolon - I will tell my dad you said that. I am sure he will get a laugh out of it. =o)
