Joe: “It’s going to be too short!”
Dot: “It looks good when it’s really short.”
Joe: “Well I like your hair best when it’s not short, curly and gray, but I don’t make you change it!”
Dot: “Oh Joe, just hold still and let her cut your hair.”
Tootsie did a few more snips and Joe shouted: “Wait! It’s winter! I’m going to get too cold without my hair!!”
Dot smiled: “If you get too cold then I’ll keep you warm…”
Joe: “Did everyone hear that?” Tootsie and I smiled and shook our heads “yes”.
Joe winked at Dot: “Look here, Dot. I’ve got witnesses and I’m going to hold you to that…”
Dot: “Yeah, yeah. Just hold still and let her cut your hair!”
Joe sat back in his chair, grinned, and happily let Tootsie snip away.
