How Birrd Singleheadedly Ended the Prairie Heatwave

We had days and days of hot weather during the last part of June. Sitting at baseball games in 100+ degree heat, I was constantly wiping my sweaty hair off my neck. One afternoon, I decided to get my hair trimmed. Just a trim, nothing unusual. So I drove the Badger's car to the local Great Clips. His A/C doesn't work. By the time I got there, I was nearly cooked. They said there would be a 10-minute wait. I started flipping through the hairstyle book. Looking at the really short cuts I thought "Oh, that would be so nice!" So I made an impulsive decision.

Now, you know how whenever you wash your car, it rains? Well, within 2 hours of my Big Hair Chop a nice cool breeze started wafting over the Great Plains. We've had cooler temperatures ever since. Right now it is 80 and cloudy.

And every time I look in the mirror I say "AAAAH!!! WHO IS THAT????"

Hi Birrd!
I almost never comment on blogs, but I love your hair!

Birrd, you are darling, whatever the style! But I do like it.

I love it, Birrd! Fantastic!

Oddly enough, I just got my hair chopped, too, albeit inadvertently. I'll have to post a pic sometime soon . . .

Too cute, you are!
