It’s well overdue but I finally got a haircut. Trying to schedule simple tasks like this are a lot more difficult when you have a child. I try to only run errands when Julia and Corbin are out. That way, I’m not taking away any time to relieve Julia from child care duties. She needs a break too, ya know.
So today, I was able to take care of some things that have been waiting for the right amount of free time. Yesterday, I went to my optometrists for new contact lenses and he suggested i try a new kind of lens. Since i have an astigmatism, I need special lenses to see clearly. Problem is, my current lenses are quite expensive and non-disposable. Which means I have to have them cleaned or replaced once a year. So I agreed to try a trial pair but they wouldn’t be available until this afternoon.
After picking up my trial lenses (wow! what a difference from my filthy old ones) I went and got my haircut. Again – wow! what a difference. Since I usually go a while between haircuts anyway, I was exceptionally shaggy. Now, I look a little more respectable, or at least less-street-bum. In fact, I now have a look to die for. And I feel much lighter.
BTW – that’s Shirley Bassey (think James Bond theme song fame) singing “Light My Fire” just before Johnny Nash performs his hit, “I Can See Clearly Now” and then follows with “What A Wonderful World This Would Be” written by the late great Sam Cooke.
