Anyway I thought I'd picked a grade 4 attachment for my clippers. It turns out that, with a blurry gaze, an upside down 2 can look pretty similar. I noticed my error early into the cut. There was rather more of a pink glow from my scalp showing through. However, once committed there was no turning back.
I have to say that I'm not really too mortified. It makes a change albeit a chilly one now those sea breezes are picking up. Nothing that a natty hat won't sort out. And it feels great, like velvet.....or maybe the coat of a whippet. Chicken Mama, my lovely friend who has sat next to me at work since Mr Metrosexual retired, couldn't resist stroking me several times yesterday. If I can give her comfort so be it!
