Disabled, Abled: Everyone Needs a Haircut

EVERYBODY Needs a Haircut

Many years ago, in Thousand Oaks, California, I had the world’s most excellent barber. His name was Paul.

From my in-depth experience in haircutting, Paul was the most philosophical barber I have ever run across. While, of course, he had some spicy stories from time to time (well, most times, probably), he ran a family place. Yep, if you wanted one of the “special magazines,” you would have to ask, as they were stored away in the secret cabinet.

While I first went for a haircut, what kept me coming back were the stories.

He explained, more than once, that every man had a constitutional, God given right, to a haircut. As he so often said, “if a man cannot afford 12 bucks for a haircut, he ain’t got nothing.”

And there was a bonus, after every single haircut I ever received, and there may have been a hundred, I got a shot of tequila. That is service.

So, according to Paul, every man, [regardless of his mobility] deserves a haircut. In this video, I demonstrate how I continue to follow the Gospel of Paul.

I am just a guy with a disease called adrenomyeloneuropathy. I want other guys with the disease to see the good parts of disability. Not the gloom. Not the doom. Make sense?
