Extreme Makeover: Josh Edition...

When I was in high school, I fought rather ferociously against my naturally curly hair. And by "fought ferociously", I mean "got my hair cut very short every four weeks". But between college and moving to southern California, something happened. Maybe it was growing up and learning to appreciate how God created me, or maybe it was being too poor to afford a monthly haircut. I'm not sure. But the haircuts became less and less frequent and the hair became more and more lengthy.

So right now, I get a haircut about once every four months. Towards the end of the fourth month, the situation gets a little... well, hairy. This is added to by the fact that I also typically grow a beard at the end of the quarter.

The cycle just came to its completion yesterday when I paid a visit to the barber and got my ears lowered. Below, you'll find the before/after shot...

When I showed up to work yesterday afternoon, I got responses ranging from "you look so different" to "You look like a little boy" to "you look like Steve the Pirate after he got his haircut".

I didn't know it was such a big deal. Personally, I think both dudes in the above picture look good...
