My Dad’s Haircut

25 Jun

Well I’m not going to start like I did last time, that’s for sure.  I am going to go straight out and tell you. Well first I woke up (that’s a no brainer) then I had a scrambled egg breakfast that my mother made me. After breakfast Dad and me went to a German haircut place to get my Dad a hair cut (which I don’t think he needed). After we left he said he asked the barber to shave his head to a zwei clippers (which is two in english) and held up his thumb and pointer finger.  But the barber gave him a one. So once we were walking back to our apartment he asked, “This looks like a one doesn’t it? I asked for a two.” But then I told him “You put up two (in German) on your hands, but you said ein (which in english is one).” Then he said, “I did, I thought I said zwei?” “Nope you said ein”.  So that day he got one heck of a haircut. We didn’t do much until 12:00 sharp except for my Dad did his shoulder exercises which include bending forward and putting his right arm in front of him and spinning it one way then another because he said he hurt it playing basketball. We got the internet fixed at our apartment at 12:00 sharp. So we were online doing whatever for about 1 hour then we took a break at around 1:00 and we had lunch.  Then we went back on the computer for a little while longer. At around five o’clock we took the UBahn subway to the zoo (we didn’t go in but I wanted to) and walked to the Tiergarten (it is like New York’s Central Park) to meet Steffi who was going to run in a relay race. We were about to get on a bus to take us there but then she called and said that it might rain so you don’t have to come so we didn’t go. 😦 But then since everyone was hungry and it was raining we went to an Italian restaurant to have dinner. It was delicious!!!!!!! Then we went back to our apartment and Skyped with some people and then we all went to bed.

THE END………(this time for real…HEHEHEHEHE)

I took this picture of my Dad getting a haircut - he says it'll grow back

Here's my Mom in one of the gardens in the Tiergarten

    Steve! Your hair! Your perfect hair….shame on you for confusing those German numbers. Just wanted to let you know that Nicky (now my wife as of February!) and I are in awe of your journey and your decision to take it. It’s exactly what Nicky and I want to do one day. So we’re following your every post and taking notes. All the guys here miss you and hope you and your family eventually make it home, but would completely understand if you ended up staying in Europe or any of the other continents that you will visit. You guys are an inspiration to alot of people. Stay in touch. Clay

    This post might just get Joe to become a commenter… once he sees the pictures of that haircut he won’t be able to resist. He loves the number one, and asks for it -on purpose!!!!! Sounds like you guys are having so much fun together. I can’t wait to hear about your Sunday adventures- make lots of memories!!!!!

    Just think of how much money you are saving on your next hair cut, you’ll be able to go for at least twice as long now before you need your next one!! (I think Gates & Tag got their hair cut the same day!!! Wierd)
