My town, my people

Me getting my hair cut by Gina, a stylist in a Hawthorne Blvd. barber shop, June 7th 2001. We got on the subject of hair color.

Gina: My son's a dishwater blonde now. But before that, his hair was so light it was almost clear.

Me: Clear hair.

Gina: Clear hair. You'd have to somehow suck the pigment out without hurting the structure. That's impossible.

Me: But it would look cool.

Gina: Yeah, it would. [pause] OK, now we've said it, someone will do it.

Me: That's a very science-fictional thought you had.

Gina: Yeah. I think kind of sci-fi.
