Umar the hairdresser


Underneath the angelic smile lies the impish Umar. Brought him to a barber on Monday for his routine hair cut and what a nice haircut he had.

Came Tuesday evening - bald patches appeared above his right ear....Wifey was complaining what the barber had done to his hair.....

Had to diplomatically deal with the situation by agreeing that I liked his bald patches and in the same breath asked him how he managed to get this "nice" hairdo...! Surprise! Surprise! He voluntarily answered "I cut a little bit only". Wifey's confrontational method didn't work earlier and met with the response "I dunno"!

That's kids for you.......
