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.
Ha ha ha. .. orrr perhaps, being your son, he knew and thought it was funny so just left it! ! 😉
Yeah – I’m not that lucky.
