HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW ...!

                             

It was a Hair-Raising Experience today at 7th and Montana as an Eccentric Newcomer with a Mohawk nearly caught me in the act of photographing his head.  "That looks like a Treo Phone," he said.  "Do you use all the functions?"  "No," I lied, quickly switching off the camera.  "I can't seem to master this thing ... I'm ready to pull my hair out."  I went on to compliment him on his Mohawk which, with its straw-colored base and red fringe, gives him the appearance of a Roman Centurion.  In reality, he's a Personal Trainer from Culver City who says "the Stairs" in our neighborhood give him a good workout.  I assume he meant the famous, 133 steps leading from Adelaide Drive into Santa Monica Canyon.  Then again, maybe he just comes here for "the Stares!"

We had a young man that went to church with us that sported one of those.  Somebody made a comment about him, but I told them to leave him be.  He was probably more of a christian than they were and he sure pulled in a different subset of young people into the church, lol.  It was quite colorful to me at times and underneath all the garb and weird hair, they were just kids to me that were looking to be loved and accepted just like the rest of us.
