The way I remember it, I was sent up-town to get my hair cut a few days before starting kindergarten. The barber gave me a haircut that was popular with kids at the time, something very short. When he finished he twirled me around so that I could witness his handy work in the mirror that covered the wall. I looked in the mirror and was terrified. All I saw was a huge nose framed by two mammoth ears — a human elephant. I ran home and cried myself to sleep behind my dad’s chair vowing that when I got old enough I would never cut my hair again.
