#165 – Haircut, Horse, and Herpes
So, here’s what this woman told me. Back in the day, before a man was to get married, he’d go to his local barbershop and request for a straight razor shave. This type of shave is considered far more superior than a normal razor blade, often removing five o’clock shadows in no time. But! BUT! Also back in the day, they used the same razor blade over and over and over. And rarely cleaned anything…well, properly. So, I think her point was that if a man came in, had herpes of the neck (or some other sort of STD), and got a shave then the next person to use that blade would also get his disease. I don’t know. Then she had a good laugh about “explaining that one to your wife, heh.”
Why can’t I just sit in the chair and stare at myself in silence for ten minutes when I’m getting a haircut? Huh? WHY CAN’T I?
