Gregory ponders as he sits in the barber's chair at various stages of his life. His youthful preoccupation with the adult world gives way to the brash chippiness of the university student, and on, finally, to a man whose children are the same age as the girl holding the scissors. A charming take on the slow development of self.
Part of the Storycuts series, this short story was previously published in the collection The Lemon Table.
