I was little. My mom knew I was going to cut my own hair. I’d been cutting the dog’s hair, cutting the grass, cutting everything in sight with my scissors.
One day, I came down the stairs and I had taken the scissors to my bangs. Instead of cutting straight across, I had cut them so that they were really slanted. I had this giant triangle section of my bangs gone. And there was nothing that could be done about it.
I hid the hair behind a chair in the empty upstairs bedroom that we used as an office. (My only flash of memory of this incident was thinking that if I put the hair behind the chair, they’d never find it.)
So, seeing this interview with two little girls in the aftermath of an unfortunate hair cut, I smiled. The 5-year old daughter of an NPR staffer cut her 3-year old sister’s hair. You should listen to it. Oh my goodness, they are so adorable.
