Okay, first, Rachel, I don’t know whether to give you and Clay a stern talking-to about idealizing online couples who only put their best faces forward, or tell you that my wife read your two comments and went, “Awwwww! You have nice Medium peeps, Jackster!”

Secondly, totally by coincidence (or synchronicity, if you lean that way), Deb trimmed my hair today. Just a touch up in the back to get me through until the next real haircut in a few weeks. I kind of do the same to her, but just to get the sparse but noticeable hairs on the back of her neck. Neither of us is gutsy or skilled enough to try a real trim, much less a real cut, although I would be the easier to practice on because I have less surface area covered by hair (with a little less every year) and if the attempt was a total failure we could just trim the whole thing down to fuzz and wait for it to grow out. I would have to be backed into a corner before I would risk messing up my wife’s hair; Micah is pretty ballsy.
