Grass never grows on a busy road

I've decided to grow my hair.

Those of you who know me will understand the bravery behind my decision. I have shaved my head for the last few years and I can't say for sure how "fertile" it is up there. There is a strong possibility that you may see me in the weeks to come looking like a Sri Lankan Bobby Charlton. On the other hand I might have long flowing locks similar to Robinson Crusoe before you know it.

Talking of hair, which I am, have you seen that chap who appears to be a manager of some kind at House Of Fashion? He hangs around the checkouts looking managerial, always quite friendly. Long black shoulder, almost waist length hair and a "Bobby Charlton" on top.

With no exaggeration it is probably the worst hairstyle I have ever seen. I'm sure he's a top bloke and an all round good geezer but the hair needs sorting.

If I end up looking like that please pull me aside and tell me. Don't hold back.

Sometimes you've got to be cruel to be kind.

I know the guy!!!! aparently he is a sweetie.. some years ago someone at House of Fashion had committed suicide and my friend who heard about it ran to HOF the moment it opened to ensure it was not the long haired guy..no she did not have a crushon him.. he is a really plesant guy apparently... gosh I love this.... Some people I DO not like are the staff are Barefoor store.. they walk around not with a chip but with an entire sack of potatoes on their shoulder.... however the salespeople at the Government one across the gall road.. another handloom place are all smiles and chit chat... they are really lovely!

I don't actually know the guy but he has the look of a warm and friendly bloke, just an extremely dodgy hairstyle. I have to disagree with you about Barefoot staff, I've always found them to be great.

I think he is just a child of the sixties.

I have seen him almost everytime i've walked in there, and he does seem like a very friendly guy. Never judge a book by its cover right?

And hair's away..............

n - A Bobby Charlton is what those old men have when they are virtually bald on top but are in denial. They grow the hair on the side of the head but have one or two long strands on the top of the head. The long strands are combed over the head to try to give the illusion of a full head of hair. The look was made popular by Bobby Charlton, a legendary English footballer.
