Because a Bet's a Bet
Another contract is written and signed and we all go home for the night.
The girls keep our house under close observation for when David returns. The second they see his truck in the drive way, over they come, ready to collect on their bet. He manages to weasel out of shaving his head one more time. He gives some lame excuse about giving presentations and going out of town for a week to “train.” The girls just steal their resolve to get this done the second he comes back. So that’s what happened.
On Saturday we manage to convince Bruce to have “rest” time. During the height of rest time, there is not a knock, but a pounding at the door. A1 and A2 are there and will be dismissed not more. So David acquiesces. He plugs up the charger to the clippers and takes his medicine like a man.
You know how you’re on your best behavior around someone you’ve just met. You usually want to dial down the crazy that usually exists in your life. Well on head shaving day, A1 and A2 had a friend over AND new neighbor just moved in with a girl A1’s age and she was there too. These events would be difficult to translate to parents or new neighbors. Needless to say, I’m baking the new neighbors something wonderful even as I write.
Here are photos of the carnage… I mean haircut.
Oh, as for K, she didn’t get straight A’s…..
