Hug > Haircut

It was the first morning of the trade show.  We had set up completely the night before and had not gotten to bed too late.  My morning insomnia had me up at 6 and i had a text from Davi.  She was in Chicago, had been robbed at gun point the previous night, and wanted a hug.  i looked at my clock and saw i could spend an hour with her before the show opened.  Of course i went.

What i was supposed to be doing was getting my haircut.  Frankly, my hair is a low level disaster. First impressions are important at sales events, so getting it cut seemed like the right thing to do.  But after i missed this first chance, i never made it back to Super Cuts.  Hawina did damage control and help me tie it back and look reasonable.  Given how well we did at the show, customers must either be really hungry for our hammocks, or my hair did not discourage them too much.

    Thanks for making the time Pax, a friendly face & time spent with someone from a somewhat more sane world (or at least an insane in a better way world?) really helped me calm the paranoia & jitters. Love.

      Davi – i was happy to be able to be there for you. And i regretted that my schedule afterwards was so crowded that i could not make it back. Do send me the link to your sustainability tour and i will add it to this post.
