A barber, and the art of conversation

The pleasantries of a “how are you” and “how’s the team looking this year” are simple opening statements for what must be the real reason you visit your regular barbershop — your yearning for good conversation with the man you trust to make you look good.

This doesn’t mean you have to be the one engaged in all talk. Listening to a good conversation is just as fulfilling. During a recent trip to Silver Clippers, I listened to two older gentlemen speak of the retired life. They were in much agreement about how life was good at home and shared tips on how to fix this and fix that around the yard.

People are interesting things. I write about them and what makes them interesting.
