A tale of 2 hairs

Filed under: Uncategorized — gayandy @ 1:53 am

Today was not a good day for Mike. I went with Mike to get his haircut for school. Trust me on this one, Mike loves his hair! I remember when school let out for the summer vacation, Mike told me he’s going to let his hair grow all summer long. And he did, until today. We went to the barbershop and everything was cool until the barber cut the hair on the side of Mike’s head. OMG Mike went fookin’ KrAzY!! He jumped up out of the barber chair and cussed out the barber! He ripped off the cloth the barber wraps around people to protect their clothing, and he ran to the door and he pointed his finger at the barber and screamed, “YOU CUT MY HAIR THE WAY I TELL YOU TO CUT IT. NOT THE WAY YOU WANT TO CUT IT!!

OMG OMG OMG!! What a scene Mike created in the barbershop!!

I didn’t know what to say. I felt bad for the barber because I think he was trying to do a good job cutting Mike’s hair, but I felt really bad for Mike. I walked with him down the street and Mike was crying and crying and crying. People were staring at me and him. They must have been thinking that I beat him up or something, I dunno. It was horrible. Tears were just flooding down his face, he was so angry and he was so mad. I didn’t know what to say or what to do.

We walked to the place to have our pics taken for the school ID’s. While we were waiting for our pics to be developed I took a couple of sneak pics of Mike and his new haircut. He was still furious about his new haircut and I knew there was no way he was going to let me take his pic even if I asked him. And so I snuck in a couple of pics of him.

I think he looks cool. But he HATES how he looks now. You tell me, how do you think Mike looks now??

This first pic is Mike while we were waiting for the bus to take us downtown to the barbershop. This is Mikes pic of his hair the way it was before we went to the barbershop.

These next 3 pics are the pics I snuck shot of him. Which do you think looks better. The before or after pics??



  1. Well, I'm no fan of loner hair, so, I like the after pictures much better… Only thing- it makes him look like he's 12 or 13… lol… maybe he wanted to look older… IDK… it's what's in head that counts, tho! He spent all summer, growing it out; what kind of look was he after?? And, why did he let the guy cut so much before running out?? I hope he paid the guy!! It looks like he finished, whether Mike likes it or not. luv, tman<3

  2. Oh WOW!.. I like his hair before and I like his hair after… and, school is school. HMMmmmm.. I think I prefer his school haircut.. it's good. Mike can have an individual style after his graduation and anyway… maybe he wants a special hairstyle but he better learn that clothes and and possessions etc.. do not make the person.. that comes from inside.Can you persuade him to apologise to the hairdresser?Meanwhile, what about Rike? Can you give him another chance?I remember recently you shut him out of your house because he would just wander in and make himself comfortable… Do you not think that privilege was extremely important to Rike considering his time on the streets without a home to go to… and then you shut him out… I wonder if that has really wounded him inside again.. perhaps he really was getting to think of you as family and then you shattered all that by putting him back to just another outsider. That really had to hurt.And now.. your new page header pic… HAHEYS! You are super handsome.. hahahahaha .. such a lucky guy you !!!… YUP.. You n Rike look good together for sure. Don't lose a good thing Andy.:) πŸ™‚ :)Nick

  3. I like his hair better now than before he got it cut, but I would like to see it from the front to be sure.Your friends wear the most raggedy-ass jeans I have ever seen. Is that the style down there?

  4. @ tman – Mike's 15. He's always been smaller for his age. But this summer he's grown bigger. He didn't let the guy finish before running out. But there wasn't much left to do. The back of his hair looks kinda uneven. The barber did the damage on the side of Mike's head and he was working on the backside when Mike bolted outta the chair.

  5. @ anon – i agree with you about clothes or hair is not as important as what's on the inside. Mike is a good guy. He's fun to be around and funny too! But today there wasn't anything funny about him. :(Maybe when they open up an ice skating rink in hell, but until that day Mike will never step foot inside that barbershop again. You make a good point about maybe Rike thinking of me and my family as his family and that might be why he comes and goes like he lives here or something. I dunno. But he's got to learn to respect other people and not always think only about himself. I think survival on the streets is what caused him to become self serving. Taking care of himself when nobody else would made him think only about himself and it's still with him. Now comes the hard part, talking about me. Handsome? Me? Awww ur sweet. **a wink for you and blushing bright red**

  6. @ Brian – yeah can you believe we buy the jeans new and they look like they've been worn for 10 years! LOL This is the style and this is how they look when we buy them new. Hey Brian, you're not supposed to understand us. That's the fun of being a teenager. πŸ™‚

  7. David, Strangely enough he looks better after even though I prefer longer hair. Perhaps his new style suits him better.Perhaps you didn't take him to your pal the barber that you were hanging out with earlier this year. He seemed like he was quite fashion savvy.Wierd cos Mike looks so much like Rike.Hey but you know David I think you look better with your hair worn down with a fringe. Never really liked the 'shocked' upright hair style.Dee. xx

  8. @ everybody – I deleted a reply to a comment because I forgot to put who the comment was addressed to. It said @ and nothing else. DUH! And I accidentally posted it without saying anything. LOL

  9. I agreee with other Brian. Maybe he should have waited for the barber to finish it off; it does look a little uneven.But definitely too long before, even for that style.I'm sorry for all of you: Mike, the barber, and yourself.Was it your friend Sal?

  10. I like both haircuts of Mike. With the longer cut he seems to be a little bit older than with the cut. Did he realy tell the barber in detail how he would like to have his cut?{{hugs}}Rolde

  11. @ Dee yeah ur right we should have gone to my barber friend. But Mike didn't want to go there. And now he's pissed b/c he doesn't like his hair now. IMO he looks better with shorter hair. When I run out of gell I wear my hair down. I like it both ways. I guess that makes me bi-hairual? XD

  12. I like how he looks now. Before he looked like a 11 year old now he looks older and smart. I love his butt ahem I mean his jeans. I got friends who freak out about their hair so I know all about his reaction. I just laugh becuase it is sooo over the top. Just tell him he looks good. I still have him.

  13. And you say Mike is not gay? I'm having a hard time believing that lol. Anyway he sounds like a great friend. Like I said before teens tend to get strung out on extremes sometimes. With hair the problem is that it keeps growing; either you have to get it trimmed once a week to keep it looking the same (expensive!) or get it cut short every two or three months. Mike looks good with his hair short or long (Bieber style). A lot of teens' grandfathers all had hair down to their shoulders in the old hippy days; you were definitely not cool without long hair. Ten or fifteen years ago the teens had hair so short they looked like they were ready for the military. Today any hairstyle is cool including bald lol. Tell Mike he is over-reacting and he can enjoy watching his hair grow back in again. Personally I think young guys should enjoy a glorious head of long hair while you are still young; your hair just isn't the same after 30 or 40. bfn – Wayne πŸ™‚ (I hope the barber got paid before he ran out!) (and you can get away with wearing torn jeans as long as you are wearing boxers lol)

  14. Maybe it's just being a teenager, but your friends sound a bit unstable to me…like they may have some mental illness issues. Between Mike cutting himself and now flipping out over a haircut it sounds like that boy has some MAJOR ISSUES that he will need to deal with. Is there any kind of local free mental health clinic or anything in your area? Between him and Rike I think they could use some therapy.

  16. He is making a fuss about his hair now? Wait till he gets to be around 30 (or older) and it gets thinner and you can see a bald spot?

  17. The same Mike who cuts himself and believes he's going to die on Dec. 21st, 2012? Why his reaction does not surprise me? Are you sure he's ok? I mean, I understand being pissed for a bad haircut, but flipping out like that is way over the line. I'm kinda worried for him, actually.Btw, I think his new haircut looks cool. πŸ™‚
