The cashier at the corner mart is growing his hair out. I told him it was getting long and he said he wouldn't get it cut until after baseball season was over.
He's growing it for luck. Because the Red Sox will be in the series if he doesn't get a haircut. It could happen. The Red Sox have been known to win a game because I turned off the TV in the early innings and didn't turn it back on until the ninth inning.
Then he said, "I don't know what my wife will do when it's short."
Too cute: he dropped the wife bomb on me. In a subtle way.
Our exchange made me love him a little more.
