Another day, another first in a year—my first haircut in a year. I went to Great Clips, the chain that had a super-spreader event here in Missouri at the beginning of the pandemic—not the one that I went to, that one was in Joplin. They have Covid protocols now, including mask wearing. My hair stylist had a Russian accent. We talked vaccinations first. I told her that I had drove to Columbia to get mine. This took our conversation on to the subject of travel. Turns out that we both had visited Michigan last summer. It feels good not to have Covid hair anymore. Anne’s going to get her hair cut tomorrow, but at a local shop that she even visited while we were quarantining. Her Covid hair was bothering her more than mine. This afternoon, we will visit the gardens again.
