Dude, isn't it about time for you to start planning for your last haircut?

People treat you completely differently when you're on'a them longhairs. It's still enough of a novelty for me to notice.

Considering the quality of the "help", I usually dress down at Home Depot to be left alone. But it is fun to talk with some of the older clerks who can actually pronounce the technical vocabulary.
Funny thing happened at the grocery store over the weekend. I couldn't find the polenta, so I asked a teenage clerk who was walking by. He squinted at me and (as expected) asked, "What's polenta?" So I explained to him what it is. Funny thing is, after I told him, he knew just where to find it!
