During the break, I got my hair cut. It used to be long so it came as a shock to some of my students.
On the first day back from spring break, it became a topic of conversation.
The morning bell rings and one of my students walks down the hall:
K: Ah you got yo hair cut!
Mr. C: Yep, I took it all off, 8 inches.

Mr. C: Justin Bieber is better than Jesus so I’ll take it.
K: Yeah I like it.
Mr. C: I’m saving a ton on shampoo too.
