Q & A - #8 - "Why do you buzz your hair?"  
Q & A - #8 - "Why do you buzz your hair?" ~ edenzdream  

This great question deserves a Top Ten list that will be undoubtedly less funny than any of David Letterman's.

1. Bald is beautiful. (I could stop there, but I'm not that mean.)

2. My family didn't own any vaults like Scrooge McDuck, so to save money, Mom bought electric hair clippers and a chair that sat high off the ground. After years of her taking my brother and me out back every few months for the clckbzzz of the clippers (especially during summer), I fell in love with the buzz.

3. When I roll down the car windows, the air does this circular massage/tickle thing around my head that feels oh so good. I suppose this allows me the Creepy Aunt rubbing my hair feeling without the Creepy Aunt part.

4. "2 on top faded to a 1 on the sides" has a certain ring to it.

5. By cutting my hair short every couple of months, I get to enjoy a plethora of different hair styles and all the awkward stages inbetween.

6. Fewer haircuts = less money. You know . . . $8 every 3 months is cool beans.

7. People ask me if I'm in the Marines, and I get to tell them that no I'm not but that I respect those brave men and women with every respect atom I have in my body.

8. Time it takes to comb hair = 0 minutes. Combing your hair with your pillow saves so much time.

9. I know we'd all like to believe that prejudice (and racism) is dead and gone, but I actually get passed the basketball when my hair's cut short. I've found it makes for a more pleasurable playing experience when you get the ball once in a while.

10. I like it. And so does Lisa.

I'll be answering one of these questions a day for as many questions as I have, so if you've got anything you wish you could know about me, ASK IT HERE.

Buzz Cuts
You remind me of my younger brother, who is a NY State Trooper, and has had a buzz since he was sixteen. I'm going over to try and sign up right now. We'll see how that goes :) Ryan Field

Re: Buzz Cuts
It worked! Would it be too mushy to say that I'm proud of you?

I did it!
They asked a lot of questions, but I did it. Now, I'm not quite sure what I did, but I'm curious to see how this looks on the comment page. (And, in case I made a mistake...this is Ryan :)

PS Had to go and "validate", so I hope this gets to the comment page.

You've always wondered that and never asked me? I can't believe it. I mean, what other questions has Robyn not asked me?

Hopefully sometime I'll be able to stop by PFL. I think next Thursday is one of those times. Welcome back to Cali!

buzz
Dang, I need to get motivated to buzz all mine off...for the simple fact of wind. Living in the Windy City in the winter is hell on well groomed hair.

Re: buzz
Is it really worth it because I have never done it and I hadn't thought I was missing anything
