MonkeyBoy had a really funky bleach and dye job done by a friend a few months ago which was growing out in to a shaggy, oddly colored mess. When he asked for a haircut, I jumped and in we went today to get him shorn before he changed his mind.
The problem was that when he walked into the waiting area after the haircut I was completely taken aback by his resemblance to my brother. He has the same build and nearly the same face, right down to the cleft chin. With the shorter hair MonkeyBoy looked so much like his uncle that it brought tears to my eyes.The hair stylist thought I was upset about the job she'd done. I didn't know how to explain to her that I was seeing a ghost.
