So my oldest son is participating in an overnight cenotaph vigil with his Air Cadet Squadron for Remembrance Day.
I’m pretty proud of him.
However, as I was finishing work tonight, my wife texted me and said he’d forgotten his toque.
Like any dutiful Dad, I ran it over to him.
As I arrived at the legion, he was sitting at a table with some friends, his back to me.
And that’s when I saw it.
You see, it is customary, in any military oriented organization, to keep a certain dress and deportment about yourself.
Specifically your hair.
Now, he’d done his due diligence last night by using the clippers and giving himself a proper haircut.
Except for the ridiculous swath of hair he missed on the back of his head.
I mentioned it. He said he knew already.
For smegs sake people. If you need help with something, just ask.
