I love the references to Barbie and Ken. Who didn't start out cutting Barbie's hair? Very sadly sweet, or sweetly sad. I'm not sure. But it sure is a lot easier to read now than it would have been a few months ago.
Nice job, Wendy!
I love the idea of Pam having a "dial". We saw lots of this on the show. Pam would be totally tuned into Jim until Karen would start doing the girlfriend thing, and then Pam would look down and away.
Nice job with the haircut scene. I'm sure it pained both of them to watch his strands of hair fall to the floor. Hopefully, we're done with that nonsense..
I totally admit this - so, I was at my suicide class today, and we talked a bit about self-descrutive behavior, one of which is cutting (skin, not hair), and so, every time i see this title, its like, i know its hair, but still, first thought that comes into mind is not that.
I have that dial also. It helps working with kids. i can tune out the screaming toddler one inch from my ear, but still hear the teeny footsteps signaling a kid doing something that he isn't supposed to be doing.
Cutting girl's hair is easy. I would never want to try to cut boy's hair.
Its a really good fill in gap for that time and I can so see it happening. So yay. and this is a lot better than having one of them cut themselves. Wow, that suicide class is going to get to me.
(and don't worry Pam, we all miss Jim's hair's wings)
Oh, Miss Pam. We were all sad to lose the flippy bits, too.
This was lovely and tragic and I'm so glad we know it ends up JAMmy or it would hurt. A lot.
But where is the grilled cheese? I hope there is more.
Hey, what a great surprise to wake up and find this story waiting for me! How did i not know about this ahead of time? That's harsh, Swiff. :P
I kid, I kid...
I love so many of the things that this story chooses to be, from the different tense you write it in, to Dwight trying to prove mathematically that Andy is evil, to Pam's volume knob (brilliant, by the way), to the wonderful awkwardness of the haircut itself. I suppose if I had one criticism, it would be that I wish the story was a little longer. (Ironic, given the story's title, yes? :P)
Excellent job, as always!
