An Extremely Traumatic Followup
To Yesterday’s Post
You absolute clown!
I am surprised that Rebecca hasn't already "caged" you by now!
You can carry this "emulation of animals" thing too far, you know...
just think about watching monkeys at the zoo...
AD Author Anna Marie Fritz
I reluctantly gave in,
To my wife and mother.
I went for that haircut,
My pets are now in hiding,
In fear of the hairless stranger.
They will not even come near me,
Believing their lives are in danger.
My dear old mother immediately fainted,
When she gazed upon my hairless face.
She’s now rushed off to her church,
Believing she’s spawned a mutant race.
My spouse now sits befuddled,
In total shock and misery.
Is this the creature I married?
Lord, what came over me?
I guess she never truly realized,
What was under all my hair.
Now, she sits dumbstruck,
With a god-awful stare.
Now, she truly believes,
That she married a baboon.
Now, she fervently prays,
That my hair will return soon.
I guess the moral of this tragic story,
For those not satisfied with what they see,
Is to be extremely careful what you wish for,
Or you may be as horrified - as my poor family.

|Ed. You should never have given up. It is hard to imagine one to be hairy today and smooth like a baby tomorrow. Now look, all the pets are hiding in fear. This is what worries me so much. It is not what we have on our bodies that matters It is what we harbor inside our hearts and minds that should be taken into account. I feel sorry for mom. Is she out of church? Your wife should stay with her baboon. She shouldn't complain.Thanks Ed. for this humour which is absolutely humorous.|

|Hahaha! Ed, hope you'll grow back your hair very soon. Sorry you had a bad experience with your haircut.

Had hair like spaghetti
Rebecca said "cut!"
Now he thinks he's a nut,
Instead of Wildebeest
Please post a picture of yourself WITH the
hair, so we can better visualize what all
the hoopla is about...hee hee...

|Glad you picked April to do it in, at least the face muffler will have a chance to grow back before snow falls again *grin*.
Too funny and too true...

|Sigh... today, a haircut... tomorrow, what?! My sweetie has a huge beard and no hair at all on his head! But I wouldn't care if it was mauve and he wore it in braids.. it's HIS choice and to hell with caring what people's superficial judgements are... I'm the lucky one.. I know who he is inside! Farting, then grinning in public is embarrassing... how a true love looks or dresses should never be. Sigh.. love me, love my hair, eh? Jaysus, here I go again, turning a fun write into a "soapbox derby" for my rant. I'm done. katy xox.|

|HAHAHAHAHAHA FALLING OFF MY CHAIR...and yet I know what you mean.
When we are used to seeing someone with long hair...or a lot of
hair and it gets cut....they change considerably...but I do think
for summer it is more comfortable....ok now go shock them ED...go
and buy a wig...and scare the begooks out of them...this is too
funny.....LOL at Ed Matlack....send me some of that hair you
got cut off....my husband is bald....LOL...floria
|Reviewed by Ed Matlack
|I would let them cut off my "manhood" before they cut off my ponytail, again...Last time I left a good job, to go to another one, I cut it off down to a small tail, never again! If a job doesn't want me cause of my hair, screw them! I think a picture of yourself with the hair"cute" might more appropriate, I really want to see, even though I have nightmares enough...Peace bro', Ed & Rufuz|
