Bu yao androgynous mullet

This just in: major roads across the city are closed this afternoon because they’re practicing for the big military parade on October 1, the 60th anniversary of modern China.  So as of 30 minutes ago all afternoon classes and office hours are canceled today.

This is actually good timing because my hair is in need of a trim.  This time last year I decided to get a trim and I came out without any hair.  It’s taken me all year to grow it out again and it’s finally to my shoulders again.  This time I am going in prepared and have learned how to say “I don’t want an androgynous mullet” and “please don’t make me look like a boy.”  Okay so not really, but Anna and I feel like we’re ready to take on the hair salon again this afternoon with our improved vocabulary and help from Grace.

Wish us luck!  May I come back with just a trim this time!
