I got home from work on Sunday night and I looked in the mirror.
I knew almost immediately that was a mistake.
It wasn’t because I didn’t look beautiful — I was dashing in my gray Kansas City Royals t-shirt.
But it was my hair.
Yes, there seems to be less and less on my head each day. But what’s left is a mess right now.
Not so much on what’s on top of my head, but what’s on the side.
More specifically, my sideburns.
Frankly, they are out of control.
So I got the bright idea to try to trim them a little. I have the capabilities to trim them, but I rarely — if ever — do I.
Sunday night, I was fed up.
I got some scissors out and I made a cut. One on each side, actually.
I took off a clump of hair, but not much. Just enough to make it look a little less ridiculous.
But it made me think. This is why I don’t do things myself.
I believe it makes our economy better — or something like that.
I have to give a shout out to Ryan Seykora. He recently built new steps to his back door. And they look pretty impressive. I stopped by to check on his progress Saturday and I was surprised. They stairs aren’t quite finished — they need to be stained — but they are pretty good.
There is no way I could do something like that.
I don’t change my own oil.
I certainly don’t (or shouldn’t) cut my own hair.
So that’s why I have a professional work on my car. And trim my shrinking hairline. And even clean my house.
Perhaps I could do it just fine on my own — my sideburns do look OK — but I’m not willing to take that risk.
And from now on, I think I’ll leave it to the experts.
