The Long Awaited Hair Cut...

     I'm getting my hair cut FINALLY today...I was starting to look like Shaggy from Scooby Do!

     For a brief time, I thought I might have died during the past two months of my "relapse situation"...but since my hair and nails have continued to grow, I MUST still be among the living! LOL

     URBAN LEGEND #1:

     To quote the respected forensic anthropologist William R. Maples:

"It is a myth that fingernails and hair continue to grow after death.  What really happens is that the skin may retract around them, making the hair and nails prickle up and jut out more prominently.  Erich Marie Remarque, in his novel All Quiet On the Western Front, imagines a dead friend's nails growing in weird subterranean corkscrews after his burial.  It is a powerful, disturbing image, but it is purely moonshine.  No such thing occurs." 

     Just thought you should know...why, I have no clue...

I'm thinking a flat-top ... it takes me all of 15 seconds to groom my hair in the morning.  That CANNOT be beat.
