Pardon the Interruption

...but the kid in high school just came downstairs to borrow his father's clippers...apparently he went to the Hairport and it was closed, and the mall place wanted to charge $23 to cut his hair, and he was having NONE of that.

Now, I am all for being frugal, but the kid has his state drama tournament this weekend. He probably is going to want to look, well, not like he gave himself a haircut. I am not envisioning this turning out well. In fact I laughed pretty hard...right at him. My Mom of the Year trophy is being FedEx'ed as I type.

His response, "Thanks for having faith in me."

Yeah, babe. I have faith that this is not going to go well and it will be with great pleasure (and most assuredly giggles) that I hand you $23 plus tip to go get it fixed.

ETA: Well, sorry, but I blew it. With the incessant teasing during dinner, the kid hit Mr. P up for $10 to subsidize a mall haircut. He then heads to the mall, where he then called us at 8 pm saying all the stores IN THE MALL during Christmas selling season were shutting down or were already closed. When we asked why, he thought "cuz probably there was a fight or something". uhh? WHAT? Yeah, this is the kid that got a 32 and full scholarship to college. I don't know.

I think "drama tournament" is hilarious! What exactly does that entail...wait maybe I don't want you to tell me because it might not be as funny.

I read your comment on Ashley's blog which reminded me to tell you I got out my Tracy starfish ornament to put on my tree and it stank SO bad we couldn't put it on, but inexplicably I kept it...

This is one of those posts that is truly useless without pictures. Especially for those of us who are hairstylists!

Tara: He is waiting until after dinner...believe me I will post pics if it turns out as nice as I think.

Tracy: Not very Christmasy of you.

Which part wasn't Christmasey, making fun of drama tournament or not putting up smelly dead starfish?

Hotch Potchery said...

You should put up the smelly dead starfish. I got that for you special.

I do wonder why they didn't bleach it or something to get all the fishiness out.

Tracy said...

No, you don't understand. It SMELLS, way worse than it did. You can smell it from far away, I think the cats would tear it down and try and eat it.
