The barber shop I used to go to was definitely a man's world, and you got more than a haircut when you went there; you got an ear full. See, something seems to happen when men sit down in that barber chair. It's as if they were administered truth serum, and they start to suddenly talk openly about their relationships, and their marriage, and their kids, and their frustrations, whether you want to hear it or not.

I guess that happens in bars, too, that's what I'm told. The barber, the bar tender, maybe the beautician; I haven't been to one in a long time. But I hear that it is that way with beauticians too. They all seem to be like safe people that you can sort of unload on. Unfortunately, I guess they can listen, but they usually can't help much. There's something in us that's looking for somewhere we can really let out what we're always holding in. You need it; I need it.
