Well, it’s over…I tried to come up with a quirky way of getting people to buy my book, but in the end, it only sold 9 of them. I knew it wasn’t working, but yet I soldiered on, refusing to get my hair cut. But today, I ended it, unceremoniously, by letting my wife grab the scissors and lop off the pony tail. Truth be told, I was actually growing tired of that it. It was becoming a hassle and a literal pain in the neck as, when I would sit on my recliner, my back would pull on the hair as it fell between the chair back and my literal back, yanking my head backwards. It would also happen when I slept, or attempted to sleep, my hair covering the pillow and when I would turn, it was like someone pulling my hair. So now it’s gone. At least 6 inches were lopped off today by those shears. While technically it wasn’t a true hair cut, it was cutting of the hair and cutting of the failed sales gimmick, one year later, the plug has been pulled. What was once hair down to the middle of my shoulder blades, now barely touches my shoulders. R.I.P. pony tail…good riddance!
