Bestival again! – Somehow or other I was badgered into visiting the Ray-Ban tent. The sound levels were way above my normal threshold but I stuck with it as one of our group had volunteered for a free haircut!
The barbers menu was quite short – somethings along the lines of: Quick Tidy, All Off, Mohican and Barber’s Choice – Madeline, being nuts, ;), chose “Barber’s Choice” and we all stood around watching while she underwent the efforts of a well disguised, professional hair dresser putting on a flamboyant display for the onlookers. She ended up with a few minor tweaks and a lot of red and glitter spray.
Yours truly was cajoled into joining he queue and bottled it by requesting a “Quick Tidy”. All was going very smoothly until the end when I too was subjected to the colour and glitter sprays. Goodness only knows what I looked like for the rest of the evening, thankfully I didn’t have to look at it, and the telescope viewing public didn’t seem to care! The good news was that the colour washed out really easily when I got home!
Add this to the “Staring Contest” that I also got dragged into and you’ll understand that this was not a normal night for me.
The end result though was very satisfying. I got a free haircut, won the Staring Contest and picked up a pile of Ray-Ban goodies for my efforts -thanks guys!
