I know it has been awhile since I posted - still no camera.
However, for those of you who know me, will be surprised at this post.

I have a son. (More than one, but L is my eldest son. He is affectionately known as Doofus.
Doofus does things that only a doofus can do. However, he also doesn't do things that most people do - in this case, have his hair cut. It has been 8 years since he got it cut - and only then because it got sooooo matted, he couldn't do anything with it! (an understatement I know!). And yes, I was there with the camera when he got it trimmed!
Doofus loves his hair. He would wash and condition his hair regularly - using all the hot water in the process. He had his hair tied up for both work and sports. But when he was just being Doofus, it was down. I even have photos of girls using hair straightners on him -2hours it took, and his hair was so long, it came half way down his back.
Well, his hair is curly, sorta ringlet-ly, and a talking point - especially with the older ladies (think my mum's age!).

This is Doofus:

(not the greatest of photos I know, but he is smiling - and what more could I ask for?? Photo taken Sept 09)

Anyway, last month - 28-03-10, hubby and I went to his sports game. We had been out all morning, and when we left Doofus was in bed, no surprise!. So, we walked into the stadium, looking around to see if he was there. Couldn't find him anywhere! His coach came up and started talking to us, and asked us if we had seen the new guy yet - looked over, and sure enough a 'new' guy was in Doofus's shirt. Then the new guy turned around:

I must of had a stunned mullet look on my face. I alternated between laughing and crying (still am for that matter). He woke up that morning, decided he had enough and off he went to his mate's place, gave him the scissors and they went to town!
What was funny though - the goalie called him Kojak - and Doofus didn't even know who Kojak is/was!

So my dear friends, something I thought would never happen - happened!

Until next time, when hopefully I will have a camera....
