Another Hairy Experience

with one comment

With considerable urging and a gentle nudge Mark once more ventured across the road for a “hair cut”. Well, perhaps more correctly a “head shave”. None of this poncy hair styling for Mark, it was a “number 3” all the way round. He even bravely told the barber to fore-go any preliminaries with the scissors; just “get out the shaver and go for it” was his request! Once completed he was doused in methylated spirits, relieved of 1 Ghana cedi (80 cents) and sent on his way with the following result:

By Ghanaian standards he’s still a hippy, but I think you’ll agree he wouldn’t look out of place in Pentridge Prison or in the US Marines (ok, maybe he’s too old for the Marines…..).  Now just need to work on dreading up that beard….
