Memories Of Me

Updated on May 6, 2011

Hair-style called "memory"


When I was young my two oldest brothers were twenty and twenty one years older than me,Both were established barbers.They had a brilliant idea that they should send me to school to become what was then known as a Barber-Stylist..(I really just wanted to be a dog groomer,but what the hey, it was their dimes!)

I was so afraid of the public having been reared in such a country setting where we only went into town like once a month,but I did so..

The first real style they taught us was a couple of styles called the Memory One and Memory two.(it just meant precision cut and the hair would stay feathered,no matter how tussled)

Of course I panic when giving my first haircut,ever the writer, I ran home, and wrote the following poem.

Memories Of Me

The customer sat down in my chair

all I could do was stand and stare

I felt the trembling in my knees

As he said a "memory" please

I looked up, and all around

There was no instructor to be found

Then I pretended a "barber" to be

That's when this calm kinda came over me

As the hair began to fall

I found it wasn't hard at all

When I had finally completed my task

I knew I'd done what the customer ask

For it was surely plain to see

Till his hair grew back he'd have memories of me!

      I've been cutting my own hair for years...decades, even...and I've had a few "memory" haircuts! I also cut my children's hair, and none of them would allow me near them with scissors after reaching a certain age.

      One thing about hair, though: it grows.

      I like the poem. Makes me wonder how your patron looked when the final lock of hair hit the floor.
