Who Touches Yours?

We, in the government service do not receive monetary compensation for overtimes. In return for the overtime services rendered, we are excused from reporting for work with full pay and benefits in lieu of the overtime pay, this is termed as Compensatory Time-Off. Last Monday (April 8), being a “sandwich day” mi clever esposo filed his compensatory time-off. He might have been excused from his duties in the office but not with the household. That day he was the house’s handyman. He fixed the closet door’s handle, installed the electronic mosquito repellent, fixed the ballast of the dining room’s light and replaced the maid room’s bulb. He even cooked for diner. Hehe But what surprised me that night was the hairdo of Uno. He styled it into 1-length cut. Tadaa!


He is the official haircutter of our girl (the only, actually). I think he has hair fixation, I even remember 1 time he curled my hair for a party (line deleted because the subject reads this blog and may sue me for betrayal of trust. hehe). But everybody seems to praise him with his skill, everyone who sees Uno after a haircut smiles with awe especially when they learn that its mi esposo who cut it (their smile turns into a shy laugh. lol).

But seriously, I wouldn’t trust Uno’s hair to anybody. Cutting toddler’s hair is very challenging and requires a lot of patience and care. Only a doting parent can perform this with outmost diligence. I’m sure our girl could proudly say: “Only Tatay touches my hair, ...”

    1. I'm not sure if it also applies to teachers. Pero parang hindi eh, since teachers adopt different working hours.

      Welcome to the Government Service, Ma'am. =)
