The New Year

Isn't this how every married couple rings in the New Year? Doesn't this picture wreak of comfort, familiarity, trust, romance, ingenuity, pride and most of all self esteem? Its obvious what's going on here. But what most people might be questioning is the lovely little device I'm wearing around my forehead. Of course there's a story....

See, I've been cutting my family's hair since the beginning of time, it seems. In actuality, it's been for the past 13 1/2 years - every two/three weeks. Only recently did I start adorning myself with the lovely Cowboys apron in order to keep stray, flying hairs off my clothing. We always cut hair in the garage. It doesn't matter if it's 104 degrees or 20 degrees - hair cuts are in the garage. Period. However, our garage doesn't have the best lighting. Optimal lighting conditions would be to open the garage door and let in as much natural light as possible. However, that wasn't an option this go around being that it's winter and cold and night.

Then a genius idea hits me...I could use Chuck's head light. My brother just gave him this head light for Christmas so Chuck could ride his bike in the dark if he so chooses. Little did he know it would also be a handy little tool to light my way while navigating each head of hair I have to cut. Pure genius.

Any year that begins like this is sure to be a winner!
